Atalanta central midfielder Franck Kessie has revealed that he's flattered by interest from some of the biggest clubs in European football.

The Ivory Coast international has been linked with English giants Chelsea, Manchester United as well as Manchester City since last year.

The 20-year-old player has since stated that he does not know if the Italian Serie A club have received any concrete offers from interested clubs.

“I am very flattered clubs of this level are interested in me," Kessie said on the Sun.

“This proves that I’m having a good season, that I continue to progress. I don’t want to go too fast.

“I don’t know if my club has received any offers. I’m under contract. We’ll see if we need to discuss anything," he added.

“I like Bergamo. The city is nice, quiet and I appreciate life in Italy, where I was well received.”

The promising midfielder has made 20 league appearances for Atalanta this season - netting six goals in the process.
