A report claims that Juventus have won the race to sign Ivory Coast midfielder Franck Kessie from Atalanta BC.

Juventus have reportedly won the race for in-demand Atalanta BC midfielder Franck Kessie.

The 19-year-old, who has scored six goals in 12 appearances for Atalanta this season, has been linked with moves to Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Barcelona in recent weeks.

It is understood that the clutch of interested clubs will submit offers for the Ivory Coast international in the January transfer window, but according to Calciomercato, Juventus are confident that they have won the race.

The teenager started his professional career with Stella Club in Ivory Coast, before making the move to Atalanta in 2015. Last season, Kessie scored four league goals during a loan spell with Cesena.
