AC Milan ace Franck Kessie really would be an excellent signing for West Ham.

The Ivory Coast international is a transfer target for Wolves, according to Sky Sports.

The Hammers do have plenty of central midfield options, but they can sometimes be rather lightweight in the middle of the park – a problem they have had since Cheikhou Kouyate left for Crystal Palace in the summer of 2018.

West Ham have plenty of exciting, technically gifted players. There is a danger, however, that they could get bullied in tough away games this season.

 

So here’s three reasons why they should attempt to muscle in on Wolves’ reported interest in Kessie…

Strength and power

He is strong, powerful, bursting with energy, and has a tenacious edge to his game that makes him ideally suited to Premier League football.

Age, he could become a star

At just 22, Kessie has plenty of time left ahead of him, and if he continues to develop, he could very well go on to become a real star.

Great value

According to Sky Sports, Milan want just £30 million for the Ivorian this summer, and in today’s day and age, that would represent excellent value for money for West Ham.

And if Pellegrini has the chance to bring Kessie to the London Stadium, he must not hesitate.
