Tottenham had a successful summer transfer window under boss Nuno Espirito Santo’s guidance and could look to do the same again in January with the potential signing of Franck Kessie.
Kessie, 24, has announced himself as one of AC Milan’s star midfielders having joined from Atalanta in 2017.
The Ivorian midfielder registered the best season of his career thus far in 2020/21, scoring 13 goals in 37 Serie A games as the Rossoneri recorded a second-placed finish.
But with his contract up at the end of the summer, the San Siro-based outfit are scrambling to secure his signature for the long term.
With Moussa Sissoko joining Watford at the latter end of the transfer window, there is now a space for a midfielder in Nuno’s ranks.
And with Kessie’s future up in the air, Tottenham have been alerted to a potential situation which could lead to his signature in the near future.

According to Calcio Mercato, Milan have offered him a contract of £107,000 (€125,000) per week, although that may not be enough to make the Ivorian stay.
And if he continues to refuse the approaches made, then foreign clubs can offer him a pre-contract in January – alerting Tottenham to a potential deal.
The report further goes on to say that Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Spurs are interested in a deal for him, with Mauro Icardi and Leandro Paredes potentially being used in negotiations in a deal to take Kessie to the French capital.

However Spurs plan to use want-away midfielder Tanguy Ndombele as a makeweight.
Ndombele has had an indifferent Spurs career, showing flashes of brilliance amongst longer periods of inconsistency.
And with the Frenchman wanting out of north London, a like-for-like swap could be the best deal for both teams.
Ndombele signed for Spurs in 2019, but has only featured in 54 of a possible 76 Premier League games after falling out of favour with ex-manager Jose Mourinho and now Nuno.
And with Kessie’s stock higher than ever, Spurs chiefs may be scrambling for a deal to bring the Ivorian to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Lilywhites are top of the Premier League after winning their first three games – but face a tough test away at Crystal Palace on Saturday as they look to continue their fine form.
