Tottenham scout AC Milan duo worth a reported £70m

Tottenham reportedly sent scouts to watch two AC Milan stars on Saturday evening, and a £70m summer swoop could be on the cards.

What’s the story?

According to Italian outlet SportMediaSet, via TeamTalk, Tottenham had scouts in attendance for Saturday night’s Serie A clash between Atalanta and AC Milan.

The Lilywhites have been linked with both Franck Kessie and Suso this week, and the report values the pair at around €80m (£70m).

Of course, that would be £70m more than Tottenham have spent in the last two transfer windows combined, but the Lilywhites should absolutely pull the trigger on the Milan duo.

Are they worth it?

Tottenham will have to break their transfer duck this summer, as the club simply cannot compete with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool if they do not invest.

While £70m is one mighty investment, Suso and Kessie would both add something to the Tottenham squad, and Kessie in particular is a player that the side is crying out for.

Suso has been superb since leaving Liverpool, scoring 21 goals and adding 34 assists in 121 games for AC Milan.

The Spanish international is a crafty playmaker who likes to play from the right, where he can cut in and produce magic with his wand of a left foot.

Kessie meanwhile is a traditional midfield enforcer, perhaps capable of filling the hole left by Victor Wanyama, who just cannot stay fit.

The all-action 22 year-old already has 25 Ivory Coast caps to his name, and has scored three Serie A goals this season, while averaging over a tackle per game, per Whoscored.

With Eric Dier and Wanyama both struggling for regular fitness and Mousa Dembele departing the club in January, a double swoop for the Milan duo would add strength, depth and guile to the Tottenham squad.
