North London outfit Arsenal have been encouraged in their pursuit of Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan star Franck Kessie as they are reported to be willing to cash in on him for other transfer deals.
AC Milan needs to make the signature of Chelsea player Tiemoue Bakayoko permanent at the San Siro as he is currently on a loan deal which is the reason why they seek to have Franck Kessie sold to any club that is ready to meet with his asking price.
The North London outfit have been linked with the star player as they hope to have him as a replacement for Wales international Aaron Ramsey who is already on his way out of the club to join the Italian Serie A champions Juventus at the end of the season after agreeing to a four-year deal with the club.
There is, therefore, a need to have Aaron Ramsey replaced at the club and Franck Kessie has been identified as a perfect player for the replacement.
However, the North London outfit are being discouraged by the fact that AC Milan are asking for a $40 million fee for the star player which seems too big for the Gunners to pay.
