Franck Kessié joined Barcelona on a free transfer last July after his contract with AC Milan expired. The Catalan club could now be in a position to profit from selling Kessié this summer, but the player is believed to be happy at Barça and wants to remain a part of Xavi Hernández’s project.
Saudi Arabian clubs have been spending big in Europe over the last few weeks, and Kessié could be on his way to the Middle East. Relevo understands that Al Ahli are prepared to make a huge offer for the 26-year-old.
In addition to Al Ahli, Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino is said to be a fan of the midfielder. With Matteo Kovačić recently confirming his move from Stamford Bridge to the Etihad Stadium, the Argentine coach look to make a move for Kessié.
The Blaugrana club will take suitable offers into consideration as it would help to improve their current financial situation.
