Earlier this morning, Wolverhampton Wanderers became very strongly linked with AC Milan defensive midfielder Franck Kessie.

It was suggested that we had struck a 25million Euro + 3million in add-ons deal for the 22-year-old and it was expected that a deal would fly through ahead of today’s 5pm deadline window closing. The sticking point was personal terms, as Alfredo Pedulla suggested we were only offering 2.5million Euros a year and the player was holding out for 4million Euros (which is ridiculous given his age, regardless of how highly rated he may be).

It sounded initially like it was a simple negotiation game, but a follow up report on the Ivorian from Daniele Longo suggested that the issue wasn’t wages at all, and simply that the player wasn’t yet reading to leave Milan so he would turn down our advances.

Money talks in football as we know, and if we really want him I’m pretty sure they’ll soon be an announcement.

  • Kessie has decided to stay at Milan but AC is still interested in signing Correa but without selling someone, that transfer also looks to be off.
    What puzzles me is why Wolves have not decided to go for Olmo of Dinamo Zagreb.
    As a box to box player, only 20yo and the scorer of 12 goals and 9 assists last season, he would appear to be of the calibre that Nuno looks for and what the team needs.
    So, as I say, puzzled!

    • Not heard of Olmo, sounds like the right type though for building. Not sure what to think of Kessie the old ‘I’d rather stay’ is usually code for ‘I want more money’ and at least from what I can tell, AC have FFP issues?

      • They have a deal with Fifa, they not going to start this season in European League, and Fifa won’t cause any problems with fpp.

        • Was only loosely interested so cheers for that Simon. Maybe one to revisit in January, assuming we had any real interest to begin with? Can never tell during transfer windows anymore.
