Inter linked with January move for Barcelona midfielder Kessié

Inter are reportedly interested in Barcelona midfielder Franck Kessié who has been struggling with playing time at Camp Nou.

The Ivory Coast international joined the Catalans as a free agent last summer after the end of his contract with Milan.

The 25-year-old has collected just 485 minutes with the Blaugrana this season, scoring one goal in 13 appearances across all competitions.

Inter, especially their director Piero Ausilio, are long-time admirers of the ex-Milan midfielder and held talks with Atalanta in 2017 before Kessié’s move to the Black and Red side of Milano.

The Nerazzurri are forced to operate with a reduced budget due to Suning’s financial issues and would be interested in a loan move in January.

However, according to the report, Kessié would prefer to end the season at Barcelona and his high salary in Catalunya also represents a potential obstacle in the deal, but Inter will keep monitoring the midfielder ahead of a possible deal in the winter transfer window.
