There has been intense speculation surrounding the future of Franck Kessie in the last period.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, West Ham have joined the hunt for AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.
The Ivory Coast international only joined AC Milan from Atalanta in 2019 for 24 million euros and his contract runs to June 2022.
The 22-year-old is considered to be one of the best midfielders in Ivory Coast. As a member of Ivory Coast national football team, Kessie won 39 caps.
Franck Kessie is widely regarded as a key transfer target for West Ham this winter.
West Ham have built a reputation for recruiting young talent, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential. They are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
There is no doubt that Kessie will take West Ham’s midfield to a different level.
According to Tribalfootball, “West Ham have joined the interest in AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie. Wolves have been following Kessie since the end of last season and made an attempt last summer. Molineux chiefs are ready to try again in January. However, MilanNews says West Ham are also in contact about bringing the youngster to England. Both Premier League clubs are willing to offer €20-25m to convince Milan to sell. For his part, Kessie will be tempted by a move to England, particularly as he battles to win over new Rossonero coach Stefano Pioli.”

It would take a huge offer from West Ham to prise the 22-year-old midfielder from Milan.
However, a move to West Ham will be ideal for the 22-year-old at this point of his career.
West Ham fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club this winter.
How strong that interest is and whether West Ham will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
