Inter enter talks with Barcelona for Franck Kessie

It’s no secret that Inter are interested in Franck Kessie. But who isn’t? The latest update from Italy suggests that Inter are set to loan Barcelona midfielder Franck Kessie.

Inter Milan

Since his arrival from AC Milan, Kessie has scored one goal in 13 games for Barcelona in all competitions this season.

The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Ivory Coast. His record for Ivory Coast is impressive. Franck Kessie has scored 7 goals in 60 matches for Ivory Coast at senior level.

The midfielder has struggled to adapt to Spanish football and he could be made available for loan this winter.

Simone Inzaghi is eager to add a midfielder to the squad. He wants an experienced player that can be a leader on and off the pitch for him. Inzaghi is a firm fan of Barcelona midfielder and Inter could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.

Franck Kessie is a skilled midfielder who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.

World Football Rumours

According to the report, “Inter Milan are in talks to sign Barcelona midfielder Franck Kessie. The Ivorian only moved to Barca last summer from AC Milan, but has struggled to settle in Spain. Tuttosport says Inter have now opened talks about a loan deal for Kessie in January. The big obstacle for Inter is Kessie’s €6.5m salary. However, Inter still hope to take Kessie on-loan so long as Barca contribute to his wages.”

The Black and Blues will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Kessie to join the club.

The report claims that La Liga giants could look to sanction his sale due to a financial crisis.

Good signing for Inter?

Franck Kessie could offer a smart solution if Inter can manage to get him on loan. If the deal works out and the 25-year-old plays well, a permanent deal could be pursued and if he fails to perform, Kessie can return to Barcelona.

A move to Inter is exactly what Kessie needs to reignite his career, and we hope he is able to do just that.

How strong that interest is and whether Inter will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
