TOTTENHAM are in talks to sign Franck Kessie on a free transfer, according to reports.
The AC Milan midfielder's contract at the San Siro expires next summer.
And according to Alessandro Jacobone, Spurs wasted no time in approaching his representatives to try and secure a move when he becomes a free agent.
It is understood sporting director Fabio Paratici has already held a meeting with Kessie's agent Ataganga.
The report adds a five-year contract was offered worth £6.9million per season – or £132,000 per week.
Jacobone adds Ataganga would also receive a significant commission, too.
Kessie, 24, has been a key player in the Milan midfield since joining from Atalanta, initially on loan in 2017 and then permanently two years later.

The 48-cap Ivory Coast international boasts 184 appearances for the Rossoneri, scoring 30 goals.
Kessie could prove to be a replacement for Tanguy Ndombele under Nuno Espirito Santo.
The record signing's future at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium remains in doubt.
After being left out of the entirety of pre-season, he did not feature in the matchday squads for the wins over Manchester City or Wolves.
Spurs have already brought in Bryan Gil and Cristian Romero this summer – as well as goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini.
Crucially, as things stand, Harry Kane remains a Tottenham player despite Manchester City's desperation to land the England captain.
