Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has come out to downplay any rumours linking his club to Atalanta’s coveted young star Franck Kessie.
The latest from calciomercato.com reports that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has dismissed any supposed links to Atalanta’s Franck Kessie.
Kessie has claimed recently that the Gunners boss had contacted him over a January move, but Wenger is putting those rumours to bed by denying any sort of talks with the 19-year old’s agent.
The Ivorian has been the talk of the mercato for weeks now. He has seen his name linked with Serie A leaders Juventus, as well as several clubs in England including Manchester United, Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea. It’s unlikely that Atalanta will sell Kessie prematurely before June but nothing should be ruled out when the biggest European clubs come calling.
