Reported Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal target scores at 2020 Olympics, 'unstoppable finish'

Reported Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal target Franck Kessie helped Ivory Coast to a winning start at the 2020 Olympics.

Gazzetta dello Sport reported in June that Mikel Arteta’s Gunners were really keen on the AC Milan ace.

The same outlet claimed this week that Jurgen Klopp’s Reds were also monitoring the midfielder.

And at the start of July, Eurosport claimed Nuno Espirito Santo’s Tottenham were eyeing Kessie, whose contract expires next summer.

The 24-year-old is an incredibly talented player, so it’s little surprise to hear that Liverpool, Spurs and Arsenal reportedly want him.

Gazzetta dello Sport suggests Milan want to try and reach an agreement over a new deal upon his return from the Olympic Games.

Until then, the 24-year-old will hope to help his nation to glory in Tokyo.

And he’s very much hit the ground running by scoring the winner in their Group D opener.

A Saudi Arabia own goal gave the Ivorians the lead before Salem Al-Dawsari grabbed an equaliser before the break.

But then, Kessie and Amad Diallo linked up to secure all three points for Ivory Coast.

Eurosport shared footage of the goal, praising Diallo’s “magical assist” as well as Kessie’s “perfect turn” and “unstoppable finish”.

Kessie and his teammates face Brazil on Sunday 25 July before taking on Germany on Wednesday 28 July.
