Yet another source has come forward claiming Arsenal are leading the list of clubs hoping to sign Franck Kessie from AC Milan.
According to what SportMediaset (via MilanNews) are reporting, the negotiations between Milan and Kessie over the renewal of the Ivorian midfielder’s contract are ongoing, however the parties are still in a stalemate as there is still a sizeable distance between demand (€6m net per season) and offer (€4m plus bonuses).
Given the excellent season he just had and the potential the former Atalanta man possesses at the age of 24, it is no surprise that the player has ended up in the crosshairs of several English clubs, in particular Arsenal.
Tuttosport (via Calciomercato.com) recently reported that Kessie’s market value has now gone up even further after such a brilliant season with the Rossoneri. The paper reported that the 24-year-old now has a market value of €60m, so Milan simply cannot afford to lose him for less given how the Donnarumma and Calhanoglu sagas concluded.
