According to a report from Italian media outlet Milan Live, West Ham are ‘certainly’ interested in signing Franck Kessie in January.

The Hammers have been extensively linked with a move for the Ivorian over the past six months or so.

And it seems as though Milan are now ready to move the 22-year-old on.

Milan Live claims that West Ham’s interest in Kessie is firming up. And a January bid for the midfielder is ‘certainly’ a possibility.

The Serie A giants are looking for around €30 million (£25.6 million) for the powerful Ivory Coast international, according to Milan Live. And in today’s day and age, that would represent excellent value for money for the Hammers.

 

Wolves are also reportedly interested in Kessie, however, so West Ham won’t have things all their own way.

Kessie will surely develop into one of Europe’s best combative midfielders. He is ideally suited to the robust nature of the Premier League.

And if West Ham do manage to sign him, it could end up being a really significant piece of business for the east London outfit.
