As an Inter follower I tend to be hyper critical of Milan, which is pretty easy these days, and their dealings in the market. I'm still really pissed off they nabbed Paqueta tho. But I must say Kessie has been a very good get for them. He was missing for a few games prior to Christmas (from a red card) and his absences was clear. He brings a lot of bite to their midfield, but does get carded a little too often. He spent most of his career as a defender but being moved to CM so defending is his strong point. He is a hard worker and incredibly direct. For me, I would prefer my box 2 box player to be a better dribbler as FK tends to run very fast in straight lines. I would also say he's not the best passer, mostly short and unimaginative. But he is a very hard worker which Poch would love obviously. For me his age makes him a decent hyperthetical option, but I would prefer a Barella for the B2B roll. But as mentioned, he will stay at Milan, it's quite a complicated deal for them. They paid 16 mil for the loan with an option to buy, but If they finish top 4 (which they won't) they have to take that option. Ether way, considering how much they already spent on him and how important he has been im sure they will purchase.
