Highly-coveted midfielder Franck Kessie looks destined for the Premier League after Juventus withdrew their interest, according to Calciomercato.

The Serie A champions, alongside Manchester United and Chelsea, were seen as one of the leading contenders to sign the 20-year-old Atalanta star, who has scored six goals in 16 league games this season. However, Massimiliano Allegri's side have pulled out of the race, leaving the English sides to battle it out.
