Player Review

Franck Kessie is a defensive midfielder for Milan. Kessie occupies the defensive midfield role next to Ismael Bennacer in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Kessie gets on the ball often by seeking space and dropping deep to receive the ball from defenders and so completes a high 51 passes per 90. Kessie is physcially very strong and is good at keeping hold off the ball when in possession, Kessie can make both accurate short or long passes but rarely creates chances in attack. Kessie only averages 0.4 key passes and only attempts 0.4 crosses per 90 and so he is unlikely to hit high PB scores often. Kessie does like to shoot, averaging 1.23 shots per 90, but most of his efforts are from long-range and he only hit the target 32.5% of the time during the 2019-2020 season. Overall, Kessie is unlikely to earn matchday dividends often due to his lack of creativity in the final third, but he could occassionally hit a high peak PB score if he is able to complete many passes in a game where he also scores.

Price Analysis

Franck Kessie's price started the 2019-2020 season at £0.94. Kessie's price grew to a peak of £0.97 in January 2020 as speculation over a possible transfer grew. During the 2018-2019 season, Kessie scored a total of 7 goals, but due to only scoring one goal by the start of July 2020, Kessie's price fell to a low of £0.82. Within just 8 days in July, Kessie scored in 3 consecutive games including an excellent 30-yard strike against Parma. Despite scoring in these 3 games, Kessie failed to hit high PB scores and so his price barely moved and he currently has a market price of £0.83 with an instant sell price of £0.60. Calhanoglu's creativity in attack and dominance on set-pieces may mean that Kessie rarely hits the highest PB score out of the midfielders within the Milan side and he appears unlikely to earn matchday dividends regularly in the future. However, prior to Ibrahimovic's arrival, Kessie often took penalties and longer term he could be a strong hold given his potential to take penalties. Furthermore, Kessie could gain transfer links which could lead to an increase in demand. Overall, in the short term, Kessie's price may remain relatively stagnant, but given his relatively young age, low price, wide spread and quality he could be a fairly strong longer term hold especially if bought within his wide spread.
