It has been reported that AC Milan are interested in signing Lucas Torreira for £35 Million and it has previously been reported that Arsenal are interested in Milan’s Frank Kessie and so it should come as no surprise that the Italian giants are considering offering Arsenal a swap deal.
It seems that Milan are determined to sign Torreira and have had their hopes boosted by the player’s comments earlier in the week when he intimated that he would like a move back to Italy.
Furthermore, the Uruguayans old boss at Sampdoria, Marco Giampaolo is on the verge of taking over the hot seat at Milan.
Arsenal has apparently made it clear that they will not be selling Torreira but that does not appear to have put Milan off, thus this intriguing offer.
In a way, it does make sense for both clubs in that neither has an abundance of cash to spend but by the same token they are not exactly strengthening their respective squads either.
Arsenal being interested in Kessie is not new, we were keen on him when he previously played for Atalanta and so it is not like we are being offered a player we do not want.
To be honest, I am not sure what to make of this, I think Torreira will improve next season, he will be stronger and I doubt he will tire in the same manner he did at the end of the last campaign but I also like Kessie and feel he could be a huge asset for us.
Tricky one worth thinking about.
