West Ham Among Three Premier League Clubs Offered The Chance To Sign Milan Star


West Ham have been offered AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, according to reports in Italy.

The Rossoneri are looking to free up funds for transfers and have deemed the Ivorian international surplus to requirements.

Kessie has spent the last two years on loan from Atalanta but Milan are obligated to sign him permanently this summer for €20m.

The 22-year-old made 47 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring seven goals and providing three assists.

The Hammers are not the only Premier League team to have been offered Kessie, with Arsenal and Tottenham also said to have been given the chance to sign the player.

With West Ham having recently signed Pablo Fornals from Villarreal for £24m, it’s unlikely that Manuel Pellegrini will be looking to sign another midfielder as a priority.

The club’s focus is reportedly still on trying to secure the signing of Maxi Gomez from Celta Vigo, but negotiations have stalled.
