Chelsea have made a last-ditch attempt to sign Franck Kessie from Atalanta, according to reports.
Kessie has emerged as a target for several Premier League clubs after another productive season for the Italian side, who are fifth in Serie A.
Kessie has reportedly agreed a summer deal with Roma believed to be worth around £24million – but reports in Italy say his agent is still exploring options.
Corriere della Sera say his representative has met with Chelsea to find out whether a switch to west London could be a possibility ahead of the summer window.
