North London giants Arsenal must contend with the reported interest of rivals Tottenham Hotspur in their chase for AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.
This is according to the publication from popular Italian transfer news portal Corriere dello Sport which claimed that Arsenal and North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur want to sign the young midfielder.
It was revealed that both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are monitoring the situation of Franck Kessie at AC Milan.
The 22-year-old signed for AC Milan at the start of last season having joined on loan from fellow Italian Serie A club Atalanta.
Franck Kessie joined the Rossoneri on a two-year loan deal until this summer with the option to make the transfer permanent.
It remains to be seen whether AC Milan will take up the option of signing him outrightly.
He has a good season for the San Siro giants in the last campaign but the Ivorian international player has not been able to live up to the heights reached last season.
His time at AC Milan took a turn for the worse after he clashed with teammate Lucas Biglia during last weekend’s Milan Derby clash with Inter Milan.
The incident took place shortly after he was subbed off in the second half of the game.
