Arsenal will miss out on Serie A midfielder after they failed to impress him

Franck Kessie could become a Barcelona player next season despite strong interest from Arsenal.

The Ivorian midfielder is at the end of his contract at AC Milan and he now looks likely to leave the Italian club.

Contract talks between the former Atalanta man and the Rossoneri have stalled so far, and he is now looking for a new home at the end of this season.

Arsenal would love to add him to Mikel Arteta’s squad as the Spaniard continues his rebuild.

However, it seems they have missed their chance to persaude him to choose a move to the club.

Sport claims the midfielder has held talks with clubs in England, but none of them impressed him.

He is now close to sealing a free transfer to Barca, where he would compete under Xavi Hernandez.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Kessie has been one of the recognisable midfielders in Europe in the last few seasons and it would be amazing to add him to our squad.

As a free transfer, we would save a lot of money from the move and he is probably better than the other midfielders we are scouting now.

However, we must offer him the best terms to win the race for his signature.

  1. Ask Pepe to persuade him to move to arsenal, he’s from ivory coast as well..just kidding

    At the age of just 25, free transfer, good midfielder, arsenal should push to sign him.

    He definitely would be an upgrade to Elneny, 100%

    1. You do know he’s a huge mercenary right?

      The reason he’s leaving on a free is because everytime AC Milan agreed a increased wage he then went back and demanded more.

      Free transfer ensures he gets huge salary. He is quality though

      1. Yeah, he looks like someone that gonna demand astronomical amount of salary.

        But considering if he can deliver good performances like in AC milan then arsenal are in business.

  2. I don’t believe in this report completely..Kessie isn’t that top top player that would need convincing before moving to Arsenal and I think he would take himself to Arsenal if the opportunity presents itself

  3. He should be willing to come but might fear for competition of place with partey.we can offer him £200k/week if money is the case,afterall we are not paying a dime for his signature come to think of it he’s dangerous in set piece and a brilliant penalty taker.a strong midfield line up he will form alongside partey and tielemans when we switch to 4-3-3.

  4. Better options out there. Kalvin Phillips and Fabian Ruiz who is rumoured to be available for £16m would be good signings.

  5. Guys y to cry for kessie when there r number of fish inside the pond….ward prowse,renato S,tielemen..Ruiz..kalvin …there is guy from south America I don’t his name …. We wil get one of the best …from the above
