North London giants Arsenal have been offered the chance to sign AC Milan midfielder Frank Kessie in a swap deal for Lucas Torreira according to the latest reports coming out of the Italian media.

Arsenal midfielder Lucas Torreira is a top transfer target for seven-time European champions AC Milan and the Italians want to sweeten the deal by offering Ivorian international midfielder Franck Kessie.

This is according to a report from Corriere dello Sport via Football Italia.

Franck Kessie has been on loan at AC Milan for the last two seasons from fellow Italian top flight side Atalanta and the Rossoneri are mandated to pay €30m for his services this summer as part of the loan deal that took him to the San Siro in the first place.

AC Milan will have to offer money in the proposed swap deal for Lucas Torreira as the Uruguayan national team player is rated at around €50m.

Lucas Torreira recently talked about his struggles at Arsenal as he pointed out that he has not been able to settle down at the club.

The 23-year-old signed for Arsenal from Italian Serie A club Sampdoria last summer and he has become an important player for the Gunners under the guidance of Arsenal manager Unai Emery.
