Ivorian midfielder Franck Kessie has started off the new season in impressive form, and it’s understandably caught the eye of several top European clubs.

According to Italian website Calciomercato, Manchester City and Manchester United scouts are expected at the match between Atalanta and Palermo tonight to take a closer look at Kessie.

The 19-year-old has scored five goals in five matches already this season, and is also attracting interest from several Italian clubs.

Juventus, AC Milan, and AS Roma are also reportedly keen on signing him, and the Turin club are prepared to launch a bid of €10m, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

Kessie was close to signing for Sunderland during the summer transfer window, but the move fell through due to work permit issues.

Kessie would be hoping to impress Manchester City and Manchester United scouts, and could be offered another chance to move to the Premier League in the future.
