Tottenham Hotspur reportedly seem ready to try to win the race to sign AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie this summer.
The Ivory Coast international will see his contract at San Siro expire at the end of the season and he is now free to sign pre-contract agreements with foreign clubs.
Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid are also thought to be weighing up moves for the 25-year-old midfielder.
However, journalist Rudy Galetti claims that Tottenham Hotspur are leading the race to sign the Ivorian when his deal runs out this summer.
Galetti adds that Spurs among other clubs have all tabled contract offers for Kessie, with the Lilywhites willing to offer a deal worth €8m plus a further €2m in bonuses.
Kessie has made 205 appearances for Rossoneri in all competitions, contributing 35 goals and 16 assists.
