Arsenal, West Ham turn to AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie

AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie is a target for Arsenal and West Ham.

Corriere dello Sport says Arsenal have shown an interest in Kessie, but could face competition from London rivals West Ham for his signature.

Kessie first joined Milan from Cessena in 2017 and has become an important first-team player for the Serie A club, while he has also won 35 caps for the Ivory Coast and finished as the joint-top assist provider in the Africa Cup of Nations last year.

Kessie is being monitored by both London clubs, and a transfer tussle between the two could break out before the close of the window.

The 23-year-old is valued at around £20m by Milan, which would represent a relative bargain in today's market.
