Paris Saint-Germain reportedly intend to solve their midfield issues by hiring AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie in the forthcoming winter transfer session

Although the Parisians have one of the most prominent attacking departments on the planet, the situation in the middle of the park is not as good as someone would expect.

Lassana Diarra is sidelined by injury, while Marco Verratti recently returned to action following five months of absence. Adrien Rabiot is currently the most reliable midfield option, but he is yet to pen a new deal with the club.

Such circumstances have forced Thomas Tuchel to deploy Marquinhos and Thilo Kehrer as defensive midfielders, which is way out of their ability range.

Therefore, the reigning French champions would like to add some depth to their midfield, and according to the Calciomercato, Franck Kessie could be an affordable solution.

The 21-year-old Ivorian has shown some glimpses of his potential under Gennaro Gattuso this season following a tumultuous first season at San Siro.

The powerful box-to-box midfielder arrived at the Rossoneri on a two-year loan from Atalanta, with Milan obliged to make a transfer permanent next summer.

On the other hand, the Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers have also shown interest in Kessie, who is valued at €56.5 million by the Serie A giants.
