Seven-time European champions AC Milan are eyeing a swap deal for Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira according to the latest reports emanating from the Italian media.
Uruguayan international Lucas Torreira has emerged as a top transfer target for AC Milan this summer.
The 23-year-old is presently with the Uruguayan national team at the ongoing COPA America tournament in Brazil.
Uruguay is bidding for a first COPA America title in eight years and Lucas Torreira is expected to be a big part of that quest for glory.
According to the specific publication from La Gazzetta dello Sport, AC Milan are willing to offer Frank Kessie in exchange for Lucas Torreira though it remains to be seen whether the Gunners would sanction a deal for the £35m-rated midfielder.
Lucas Torreira is an important player for Arsenal having joined the Gunners from Italian top flight club Sampdoria last summer.
Ivorian international Frank Kessie has spent the last two seasons on loan at AC Milan from fellow Italian Serie A club Atalanta with the obligation to sign him for £30m this summer.
Sampdoria manager Marco Giampaolo is expected to take over the managerial role at AC Milan this summer.
Marco Giampaolo is keen to reunite with Lucas Torreira whom he worked with at Sampdoria.
