Arsenal are reportedly interested in Franck Kessie, who is currently on loan with AC Milan from Atalanta.
The Express report that Kessie is a target for West Ham, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur this summer. This follows reports from Italy that Milan would be willing to listen to offers for the midfielder.
La Gazzetta dello Sport (via SempreMilan) report that Milan have an obligation to buy Kessie for €32m (£28.5m), now he’s at the end of his two-year loan. Though the Express report the figure is closer to £24m.
Either way, both outlets are in agreement that Milan are struggling with Financial Fair Play regulations, so they’d be willing to sell on immediately for around £30m.
Marco Giampaolo is expected to be named the new head coach of Milan next week, and he’ll have the final say on the potential sale.
Kessie plays in central midfield for Milan, and he scored seven goals and assisted two this season. However, he does have a tendency to concede possession in dangerous areas, in the way Granit Xhaka gets so much stick for.
