Atalanta rejects Chelsea’s bid for Kessie

Franck Kessie

Chelsea have submitted a £27 million bid for Franck Kessie, but the Italian club rejected the bid in effort to keep the young talent for themselves.

In order to bolster up his squad, Antonio Conte wants to sign the Ivorian youngster. The 20-year-old has put an impressive box-to-box display, and the first person to appreciate hard work is Antonio Conte.

Chelsea have had no transfer activity in the ongoing transfer window, except calling back  Nathan Ake from his loan spell at Bornemouth. Conte thinks  Ake has grown as a player while on loan but needs time to adapt to our way of playing.
