Tottenham close to agreeing deal with AC Milan's Kessie after Conte arrival

 Tottenham Hotspur are closing in on a £165,000-a-week deal with AC midfielder Franck Kessie.

The Sun reports Spurs are in negotiations with Kessie's agent George Atangana with an £8.5million-a-year deal on the table, following the arrival of Italian manager Antonio Conte on Tuesday.

The Ivory Coast international is in the final months of his contract at the San Siro Stadium and he could leave the club as a free agent at the end of the 2021-22 season.
