Franck Kessie

According to reliable journalist Matt Law, the Ivorian international is still being considered as a potential loan option if the Blues can’t secure any other players on permanent deals.

Kessie performed well for AC Milan when the Rossoneri won the Serie A title last season but he has been a bit-part player since moving to Barcelona in the summer. He would not be a long-term solution to Chelsea’s midfield problems.
