Tottenham have tabled a bid for Atalanta midfielder Franck Kessie.

TMW says Spurs have offered €23 million for the Ivorian ahead of the winter market opening next week.

The bid is expected to spark a Premier League auction, with Arsenal also in contact.

Kessie’s agent was in London last week for talks with Chelsea, while it’s claimed Manchester United and Manchester City are both expected to go to €25 million.

Atalanta are hoping the bids reach €30 million before deciding to sell.
