Premier League trio Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City are about to clash for the young Atlanta star.
The agent of Franck Kessie has confirmed a few Premier League clubs are showing interest in the Atalanta star ahead of the summer window.
The-20-year-old has enjoyed a great season for his club and county, now rated as a £26million target for several European teams.
However, Franck’s representative insists Premier League clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City have made enquiries into Kessie’s future.
‘Franck is close to many clubs and close to none,’ agent George Atangana told Rai Sport.
‘I must admit that Roma have the advantage for Kessie, but we haven’t closed a deal yet because there are other top clubs interested who continue calling me.
‘There are very few clubs who can afford him, though. I can confirm he’s a good lad, honest and humble. He was brought up well.
‘I can’t say how much he is worth, because that is down to Atalanta. I can only say he is a complete player and everywhere you put him, he can do that role.’
The agent also suggested that Jurgen Klopp’s insistence on pushing young players into the first-team, and Arsene Wenger’s relationship with French-speaking stars, could influence Kessie’s decision if he is to leave Atalanta.
‘There are many overseas clubs interested in him. Manchester City, where his friend Yaya Toure plays in the same role. Liverpool, where their manager Jurgen Klopp knows how to help young players develop,’ he added.
‘Then there’s Arsenal, whose manager is very close to French-speaking players. I have to say they are not the only Premier League clubs who are after him, as there are many more too.’
