Frank Kessie played in 42 games across all competitions during the 18-19 season which indicates he was a key player for the Italian outfit.
But with Gattuso leaving the club some time ago and Milan failing to qualify for the Champions League next campaign, it looks like Franck Kessie’s days at the San Siro are numbered.
As per TEAMtalk, “AC Milan are reportedly willing to sell midfielder Franck Kessie this summer, with Tottenham and Arsenal both on alert.
“The Ivory Coast star is valued at €30 million (£27m), and although he was a key member of Gennaro Gattuso’s squad he could now be shown the door – with new Marco Giampaolo expected to take over in the coming days.”
West Ham United spent a lot of money in the transfer market has summer but Pellegrini will reportedly be given even more money this time around.
Declan Rice has risen to prominence during the past season and there is a high chance that the England international might be on his way out of the club amidst strong interest from the likes of Manchester United.
And it looks like Manuel Pellegrini is eager to sign Franck Kessie as a backup plan in case Rice decides to leave during the summer.
Spurs midfielder Victor Wanyama is expected to leave the club this summer and Pochettino believes Franck Kessie might just be the perfect replacement for him.
Even if Wanyama does not leave then too there will be a place for Kessie in the Spurs squad since Mousa Dembele left for China in January.
But some experts feel, the AC Milan would want to join Spurs and not West Ham United since he wants to play in the Champions League next season and unfortunately, the Hammers cannot provide that.
