Transfer speculation always brings a smile to my face, whether it has an element of truth about it or whether it belongs in the realms of fantasy.

Sometimes, it’s hard to decide which of the above two it is.

Earlier this week, Click Here, we covered the inference that Chelsea, if AC Milan were looking to make the season-long loan spell of Tiemoue Bakayoko a permanent deal, would be looking to include the Ivory Coast international midfielder, Franck Kessie, in any proposed deal.

Today, further speculation has emerged, courtesy of the Italian news vehicle, Calciomercato, that suggests Chelsea have serious competition when it comes to bringing the player to Stamford Bridge.

Seemingly, our London rivals Arsenal are showing interest but our source is reporting that the favourites to sign Kessie are the La Ligue side, Paris Saint-Germain.

If that is the case then PSG will benefit enormously from signing 22-year-old Kessie, the player reminds me of the powerhouse that was Michael Essien, forceful in the tackle, a powerful runner and also someone who has an eye for a goal.

I fear it’ll be a case of Chelsea’s loss is PSG’s gain!

  • This a signing Chelsea should go through hell and high water to secure!
    Forget Milan he’s there on loan, and the second an final season of his loan is winding down!
    Take the bid to his parent club Atalanta, who quoted Milan an option to buy after competion of his loan at £24 mill!
    We could easily top that fee, but we ought to move rapidly to the source, like I earlier stated!
    This a move that ought not be debated!
    We’re seriously suffering without a director of football!
    We totally lack in direction and this was visible in the purchase of individuals that aren’t and will never be Chelsea calibre;
    – Drinkwater
    – Zappacosta
    – Barkley
    – Morata
    – Jorghino
    – Pulisic (Against the Spuds, not worth….)
    This going ons are beyond ridiculous! We as fans have been ridiculed for our steadfast support for the club!
    Something’s got to give!
    Kessi shouldn’t be a target, he should be a priority!!
    Get back some backbone and heart into our midfield!
    We ought not even give PSG a look in. They have a plethora of options; Veratti, Rabbiot……..
    We are an elite club operating like a mid table, Europa league team!
    Can we reclaim our position as a globally recognized soccer force?!!!
