Report: Crystal Palace show interest in signing Borini, West Ham and Wolves consider move for Kessié

Fabio Borini’s contract is unlikely to be renewed and so he could leave this January, while Franck Kessié has attracted interest from the EPL too.

Milan are going through a very difficult season, as they are in 12th place after 13 rounds with just 14 games. A top four finish would be an absolute miracle, but the directors are at already at work on making changes to the squad in January.

Zlatan Ibrahimović is the first goal for the winter mercato, but while Paolo Maldini and Zvonimir Boban are waiting for the answer of the Swede, they are also thinking of the selling market: Ricardo Rodriguez and his agent were at Casa Milan last week, and Fabio Borini & Franck Kessié could also be on the way out.

According to’s Antonio Vitiello, Borini was hoping to have more space this season and with his contract expiring at the end of the season (Milan have an option to renew it for another year and they’re not expected to use it), he may leave. A Premier League return could be an option for Fabio, in particular Crystal Palace have asked about him and he’s shown apparently availability.

Kessié, who has lost his spot in the starting XI to Rade Krunić after a series of subpar performances, has attracted interest from Wolverhampton and West Ham, according to Vitiello. Wolves already tried in the summer and are expected to try again in January. His value is estimated at €20-25m.

The intention of the club is to add quality and experience in the January market, and it’s clear that some players will have to leave. Borini and Kessié appear to be prime candidates.

Thank you god. I didn’t believe any team would want Borini.


The problem is suso no one want him


Wow that will raise big funds for january Milan will sell Kessie for a lower price than we got him for lol what a joke and soon Piatek will be worth below 10M


this is milan since long time.overpay when buying-overpay with salary…then when try to sell,find no buyers who are willing to pay more then milan we sell them to low price.and the wors is.all this players never realy made the impact they supposed to make.mostly one season luck players or already washed up injury prone players..
somethings needs to be changed in the way we make business……


if milan sell kessie for 20m then they are officially full on fckin fvckwits who dont know economic aspect enough to buy happy meal at mcd. i mean, juve dont want to sell their reserve demiral for less than 35-40m and milan want to sell their key midfielder for less than what they bought him for? idiotic
