Atalanta star Franck Kessie

Roma’s ‘agreement’ with Atalanta to sign Ivorian midfielder Franck Kessie is reportedly being endangered by interest from Premier League clubs.
TMW reports that Roma had an "in-principle" agreement with Atalanta to sign the Elephants player in the European summer of 2017.
Yet the agreement is apparently under threat because Premier League clubs are keen on the player and can offer greater financial incentives than Roma are capable of.
Chelsea remain the favourites to sign Kessie, with the player’s agent having had several visits to London, but they’re not the only English giants chasing the Ivorian.
The Manchester duo, Everton, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked with a bid for the player.
