Milan gives up on keeping Arsenal target after he rejected their latest contract offer

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to sign Franck Kessie from AC Milan for free next summer after he rejected what appears to be a final contract offer from the Italian giants.

TalkSport first reported about Arsenal’s interest in him last season as he prepared to enter the final year of his Milan deal.

The Gunners were reportedly competing with Tottenham to sign him this summer, but a move never materialised.

It remains unclear if Arsenal made their interest official, but he remained in Milan amidst all the interest.

The Italian club had been hopeful of getting him to sign a new deal with them, however, that hasn’t happened.

He is still struggling to reach an agreement with them and it seems they have now agreed to go their separate ways next summer.

Todofichajes says Milan’s latest offer is very close to what the Ivorian wants, but he has turned it down.

It claims that it will be the last offer they make to him and he is now set to leave them for free.

This should come as a huge boost to Arsenal, but the report also claims that PSG is closing in on a transfer for him.

    Will
    Probably end up at Juve or PSG as they both love a freebie ,medium wages then sell on in 12-24 months time .
    Is he even an Arsenal target anyway ?
    And he will be 25 next season so he might be alittle old for what Arteta is building as apparently we are only signing toddlers ATM .
    Jokes aside IMO he’s not what we need anyway as we signed one of the best CM last season in partey,hopefully he gives us a massive season ahead without being injured .
    For me Partey is the main man in this team and he needs to show his class in the coming games .

      What the article doesn’t say is he was demanding TRIPLE his current wages. He wants 7mil net + over a mil in different bonuses. He was trying to force Milan to making him their highest earner by quite some way.

      Definition of a mercenary,no thanks.

        I ARGUE THAT VIRTUALLY ALL PREM PLAYERS ARE MERCENARIES .My next article will be largely about the ludicrous pay they ALL get!

        The sad fact that almost all fans simply and meekly accept this outrage never ceases to amaze me, as I will NEVER accept it!

      DAN, on Partey we can agree for once.

    PSG will pay him some ridiculous salary. It sucks PSG has all these world class players in the 4th or 5th best league in Europe.
