Real Madrid are reportedly determined to sign AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie on a free transfer.
The 25-year-old has entered the final six months of his contract at San Siro and is widely expected to leave Milan at the end of June in search of pastures new.
A number of clubs, including Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham Hotspur, continue to be credited with an interest in the Ivory Coast international.
However, according to AS, Carlo Ancelotti‘s side are firmly in the race for the central midfielder, who has scored five times and registered one assist in 21 appearances for Milan this season.
The report claims that PSG are currently in pole position for Kessie, but Real Madrid will battle for his services on a free transfer ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.
The Ivorian has scored 35 goals and registered 16 assists in 205 appearances for Milan since joining the Italian giants from Atalanta BC.
