Tottenham Agree Deal For Superstar Player NOW, He Doesn't Want To Move Until The Summer For One Reason

Tottenham Hotspur have ‘reached an agreement’ with AC Milan for Franck Kessie - but he doesn't want to leave the club until the summer.

Antonio Conte has been vocal in his need for new players since replacing Nuno Espirito Santo in November.

Spurs are in a battle for the top four and according to Calciomercato, Managing Director Fabio Paratici moved to sign Kessie 'immediately.'

However, the chances of him leaving in January are slim as the player wants to finish the campaign in Serie A.

AC Milan are in the thick of the title race and sit just four points behind leaders and bitter rivals Inter Milan.

Kessie is yet to win a trophy in his career and the chance to win one in his final year at the San Siro is too good to pass up.

Midfield is a position Spurs need to strengthen in and Kessie would do just that, having scored five goals in 16 appearances this campaign.

Conte is prepared to let Tanguy Ndombele join Paris Saint-Germain on loan, while Dele Alli was left out of the squad for Sunday's 2-0 defeat to Chelsea.

Spurs are currently negotiating with Wolverhampton Wanderers for Adama Traore but a move doesn't look likely right now.

Conte suffered his first Premier League defeat as Spurs manager at Stamford Bridge after second half goals from Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva.

Harry Kane did have the ball in the back of the net in the first half, but it was disallowed for a foul on Silva.

Conte told The Guardian: "To see this type of goal disallowed in England, it was incredible.

"Maybe in Italy... 50-50, but in England it was incredible.

"They’re much stronger than us as a team and a squad – we tried everything to get a result here.

"Despite that, sometimes it’s not enough, especially when you play against this type of team. They’re very good and this club are on another level compared to us."

Spurs are two points behind Manchester United in fourth, but have two games in hand on their top four rivals.

United moved up to fourth at the expense of West Ham, after defeating the Hammers 1-0 on Saturday.
