Another flop coming in; Chelsea set out to sign Barcelona flop for Pochettino as top midfielder.
Chelsea might not be looking to spend big this Summer as they are picking up smaller players and what many woul conider other clubs flops and now they have picked up another not far away.
After letting Kovacic go, Chelsea is going in to pick up Barcelona flop and make him the top midfielder for Chelsea and hopefully to help Enzo in the midfield.
The Blues are in the transfer market for a new midfielder this summer and want a defence-conscious player to partner Enzo Fernandez in the midfield.
The west London club’s priority is to sign Brighton’s Moises Caicedo, but they have so far failed to reach an agreement with Brighton for the Ecuadorian international.
However, should a deal for Caicedo prove too expensive or difficult to pull off, Chelsea might look at cheaper alternatives and Kessie, who Pochettino tried to sign during his time at Tottenham, would certainly fit the bill.
Kessie is surplus to requirements at Barcelona, and the Catalan club are actively looking to find a buyer.
The Ivory Coast international is also said to have attracted interest from Saudi Arabia side Al-Ahli.
