Thomas Tuchel is reportedly a huge fan of Franck Kessie and “dreams” of seucring the services of AC Milan anchorman this summer.

German boss Thomas Tuchel has made a good start to life at Stamford Bridge after replacing Frank Lampard last month, winning five games and only one game ending draw.

The Blues still have plenty to play for this campaign, however, focus is already turning towards this summer transfer window.

Il Milanista claims that Frank Kessie could be among Tuchel’s transfer targets ahead of next campaign as the ex-Paris Saint-Germain head-coach is keen to work with the Ivorian.

The 24-year-old has been valued at €40m (£34.77m) by the Rossoneri, however, the Blues could use Fikayo Tomori – sent on loan to San Siro last month – as a bargaining chip in any deal.

Frank Kessie has been used 31 times in all competitions this campaign and has 16 months to run on his current deal.

Chelsea also eyeing move for another AC Milan star Alessio Romagnoli as he has emerged on the Blues radar for the last two transfer window and with the possible departure of Tomori and Christensen he could be a perfect addition to Thomas Tuchel’s side.
