With the transfer season heating up, some very interesting deals could materialize in the next few days. One of the bid’s that is at an interesting stage is that of AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie to Liverpool FC. The club’s higher authorities are pursuing to get the charismatic midfielder under their wings. Although the 25-year-old hasn’t decided to leave the Milan outfit yet, the Liverpool FC bosses are willing to pay him 8 million euros per year whereas AC Milan wants to extend his contract by paying him 6 million euros per year.
How would Franck Kessie’s style of play add cohesion to the squad?
So how would Frank Kessie’s presence benefit the Reds if the deal materializes? The Anfield side needs to strengthen its midfield as it lost a reliable figure in the form of Giorginio Wijnaldum to Paris St Germain while Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and Naby Keita have faced injury concerns. Kessie would be a promising inclusion as the 25-year-old can offer width while moving forward and also with his defensive play. The AC Milan player can also add pace and creativity at the wings with his skillful trickery and with his ability to create angles from difficult positions. Kessie can build attacks tirelessly with his intense running and his clever link-ups with the forward line. Kessie has this knack of creating chances inside the box with his clever distribution and long-range passing and can net goals during crucial periods. The central midfielder netted 13 goals in 37 games last season in the Italian Serie A for AC Milan with 3 assists to his name.
The Ivorian is also a healthy scoring option during set-pieces with his destructive headers. Kessie is known for his adaptability which would enable him to settle in Jurgen Klopp’s system. The midfielder can recover possession with his speed and is known for his pressing game which Jurgen Klopp favours. Jurgen Klopp and the team management needs to ensure enough game time for the midfielder which would make him prudent strategically and playing under Klopp will make him tactically disciplined.
Dominating in the air and pacy on the ground Kessie will be a healthy addition for the Reds if the deal is successful. The Anfield side would relish his presence as Kessie is a combination of acceleration and technical trickery alongside his physical play. In other words, Kessie is a complete package with the required attributes of a midfielder. Even though Kessie has limited experience the club bosses would fancy their chances to bring him to the negotiating table which could yield results in the future.
