Tottenham Hotspur‘s £19million bid for Franck Kessie has prompted Juventus to drop out in the race to sign the youngster, according to reports from Calciomercato.

Atalanta midfielder Kessie is arguably one of the most highly rated young players in Europe at the moment and it has been reported that the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Juventus are all interested in his services.

Now according to reports emerging out of Italy, claims have been made that Spurs are looking to steal a march in the race to sign Kessie by already placing a bid of around £19m for the teenage sensation and such a high offer has prompted Juventus to drop out from the race for the midfielder.

The Bianconeri are keen on Kessie but not interested in saying any more than £17m for the Ivory Coast international.
