AC Milan have completed the signing of Ivory Coast midfielder Franck Kessie on an initial two-year loan deal.

The Elephants player is the Rossoneri’s second transfer ahead of the 2017/18 season (following the signing of Argentinian defender Mateo Musacchio) and the club has an ‘obligation’ to buy him outright at the end of the loan spell.

“AC Milan announces the signing of Franck Kessie from Atalanta Bergamasca Calcio, through to 2019,” the Italian giants said in an official statement.

“The contract implies the player will join the club on a two year loan period with obligation to buy.”

Milan’s mandatory option to buy Kessie is reportedly fixed at €28-million.

The 20-year-old player has established himself as one of Serie A’s most promising midfielders and has often been described as the ‘New Yaya Toure’.
