Reports say Arsenal are considering a move for AC Milan midfielder by Martin
Talksport is reporting that Arsenal and Tottenham are once again considering making a move for AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.
My initial reaction is this is unlikely to happen.
The fee being proposed is 40 Million Euros, a figure we can probably afford even with the so-called restrictions in place but when you read the article there is absolutely nothing solid to go on, no official comments, no quotes from the player and nothing from any of his representatives, it all appears to be just conjecture.
I am not saying that it is blatantly false, but when comments like “suggest that that the Gunners and Tottenham are among those monitoring his situation” it is flimsy at best, any of us can suggest that Arsenal are interested in a certain player but that does make it realistic.
For the record, Kessie is a bloody good player, I have actually watched him in Serie A a couple of times this season and I reckon he would fit in just nice with us, but until there is a far more substantive rumour with some sort of verification within it I am putting this down as wishful thinking and nothing more.
