PSG favourites to sign Chelsea midfield target with Arsenal also keen

Paris Saint-Germain have been named as the favourites to sign Chelsea target Franck Kessie.

According to Calcio Mercato, the Ligue 1 giants have entered the race to sign the Ivorian from Milan in the summer.

The report also claims that Unai Emery’s Arsenal are interested in the player and could challenge both sides for his signature.

Chelsea have been long-term admirers of Kessie and have recently been linked with a summer move.

It had been claimed that Chelsea could use Milan’s interest in a permanent deal for Tiemoue Bakayoko as a way to steal the march on Kessie.

The player is under contract at the San Siro until 2021 and the Rossoneri are trying to extend his current deal at the club.

The report claims that the player could be available for just €30 million at the end of the season, a fee lower than the €32 million he was initially signed for.
