With Ndombele in PSG talks, Tottenham turn to Kessie and Veretout

by | Jan 20, 2022 18:27

Antonio Conte has asked Tottenham Hotspur to go for Milan’s Franck Kessie or Jordan Veretout of Roma after Tanguy Ndombele entered talks for a loan move to PSG.

According to The Telegraph newspaper, Conte has pointed to Ivory Coast international Kessie as the primary target for the January transfer window.

Milan would be open to a sale, especially as he is in the final few months of a contract which expires on June 30.

Negotiations to extend have been at a total standstill for several months now, Milan refusing to meet the €8m per season demands set by his agent.

Spurs could free up funds for a swoop because multiple sources today including RMC Sport claim Ndombele is eager for a loan move with option to buy for Paris Saint-Germain.

Conte and director of sport Fabio Paratici are bound to look towards Serie A for a replacement in the Tottenham midfield.

Along with Kessie, another alternative is Roma’s France international Veretout, who is no longer first choice at the Stadio Olimpico after Jose Mourinho brought in Sergio Oliveira from FC Porto.

    Don’t want to see Kessie go but at this point we have to get what we can for him.

  2. Vero Rossonero

    Idea: If Tottenham take Kessie, maybe we take Veretout? It might solve our penalty issues 😉

    #1 replacement should be renato sanchez and no one else #rossonero

    Sanches is a great option if we get the prime version of him. If it’s the version of him that fell off in the PL and Germany then we would be acquiring a dud.
