North London giants Arsenal are one of the Premier League clubs interested in a summer move for AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie according to reports emanating from the media in Italy.
Italian media portal Tuttosport revealed that the Gunners want to sign the Ivorian international star and that they may have to pay as much as €40m to sign him.
The 22-year-old joined seven-time European champions AC Milan on loan at the start of last season.
He made his first team breakthrough with fellow Italian Serie A side Atalanta before joining AC Milan on a long-term loan in the summer of 2017.
Franck Kessie scored six goals in 30 games for Atalanta in the Italian top flight before signing a loan deal at AC Milan.
The Ivorian midfielder has become an important squad player for the Italian giants since his move from AC Milan and has found the back of the net on eight occasions in 59 league appearances.
AC Milan have the obligation to sign him for €20m permanently this summer and a move to Arsenal would represent a significant profit for the Italian Serie A club.
Apart from Arsenal, London rivals Chelsea have also been linked with a possible swap deal involving Tiemoue Bakayoko who’s on loan at AC Milan.
