The biggest clubs in the Premier League are set to miss out on Atalanta’s youngster as Luciano Spalletti has successfully put his hands on him.

The summer transfer window at the end of the season might see a number of clubs in the Premier League fight for a single player and one such player wanted by a host of clubs in England this summer is Franck Kessie.

The 20-year old midfielder is among the most exciting players in Europe in his position at the moment and is finally set for a move away from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Reports suggest that Italian outfit AS Roma have successfully managed to convince the midfielder to join the club this summer and it is understood that Luciano Spalletti had an influence in this decision.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, and Liverpool have all been scouting the 20-year old, but it is reported that Atalanta have accepted a bid of €28m from their Serie A opponents.

The report also claims: The deal is said to include the loan of primavera defender Riccardo Marchizza and forward Marco Tumminello, with the pair both set for a move Bergamo this summer.
