Juventus looked to be in pole-position for the Ivory Coast international, but it seems as if Conte could crush their hopes.

After Juventus, who had broken ground with Atalanta over a possible move for the Ivory Coast international, Conte’s Chelsea have swooped in with an offer in the range of around €25 million offer to try and convince Atalanta to send Franck Kessie to Stamford Bridge.

Other clubs in England such as Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham are in the running for the Atalanta star as Kessie gets ready to play for the Ivory Coast at the African Cup of Nations.

Antonio Conte sees Kessie as another Pogba-like midfielder who can provide a tough physical presence for years to come.
