Liverpool have launched a ‘very interesting’ offer for AC Milan star Franck Kessie, according to reports.
The Ivorian’s contract at San Siro is set to expire at the end of the season.
Kessie, 25, looks set to move on – with a host of club’s interested.
According to Italian outlet Ansa, Jurgen Klopp’s side want to jump to the front of the queue.
The Reds lost midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum to Paris Saint-Germain at the end of last season.
Rather than replace the Dutchman, Liverpool have given more minutes to talented youngsters.
On looking to youth, Klopp said: “I think because the team stayed together for a long time now, we maybe lost Gini last year but the majority of the team stayed together and it helps us develop things.
Liverpool could move for Kessie to give Klopp a more established option.
But they will likely have to compete with Tottenham to sign the 25-year-old.
Spurs boss Antonio Conte is also in the market for a midfielder in January.
And Milan star Kessie reportedly fits the bill.
