The Atalanta starlet admitted to being delighted with interest from Europe's elite, though he says he is content to stay put at his club

Atalanta star Franck Kessie is "very flattered" by the reported interest in him, but insists he is happy to stay in Serie A for the time being.

The 20-year-old has reportedly drawn interest from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Roma among other clubs.

Kessie has already scored six Serie A goals this season and rumours have persisted that a summer move is impending after Atalanta held off interest over the Janaury transfer window.

But the Ivory Coast midfielder insists that he is still happy to play for Gian Piero Gasperini's men, who are punching above their weight in fifth place this term.

"I read things in the press. I am very flattered that clubs of this level are interested in me," he told So Foot.

"This proves that I'm having a good season, that I continue to progress. I don't want to go too fast.

"I don't know if my club has received any offers. I'm under contract. We'll see if we need to discuss anything.

"I like Bergamo. The city is nice, quiet, and I appreciate life in Italy, where I was well received."
