The widely reported move for AC Milan midfielder Frank Kessie is in serious doubt for Premier League outfit Arsenal according to Sky Sports Italia after the Gunners were put off by the asking price for the 23-year-old midfielder.
Frank Kessie has been at AC Milan since the summer of 2017 when he joined the Rossoneri from fellow Italian top flight club Atalanta in 2017.
The Ivorian international is available for a transfer away from AC Milan this month and Arsenal have been mooted as his likely destination.
It was revealed by the above mentioned publication that Arsenal have made an enquiry for Frank Kessie and were quoted £22m (€25m) for him.
That asking price has put off Arsenal for a transfer for the former Atalanta player.
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is keen to boost his squad in both defence and midfield though his transfer focus is shifting towards his defence due to the several injuries to his players.
The likes of Calum Chambers, Hector Bellerin and Kieran Tierney are long-term injury absentees for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal.
One of the defenders linked with a transfer to Arsenal is Laryvin Kurzawa who is on the payroll of French Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain (PSG).
