The agent that represents Atalanta midfielder Frank Kessié has confirmed that Liverpool are one of several clubs that are interested in signing his client.
Liverpool scouts have been tracking the highly-rated player for some time and our ongoing interest in him is genuine.
The 20-year-old continues to be observed by Reds’ boss Jürgen Klopp and it’s likely that we will get involved if it looks like the player will become available.
However, the player’s agent George Antangana states that Roma is the most likely destination.
“I must admit that Roma have the advantage for Kessie, but we haven’t closed a deal yet because there are other top clubs interested who continue calling me,” said Antangana.
“There are many overseas clubs interested in him. Manchester City, where his friend Yaya Toure plays in the same role. Liverpool, where their manager Jurgen Klopp knows how to help young players develop. Then there’s Arsenal, whose manager is very close to French-speaking players.”
