Arsenal have not had it easy this season. They are currently sat 10th in the Premier League and despite a slight upturn in performances since the arrival of Mikel Arteta, the club is still missing something. There are problems in defence, but the midfield is also lacking. Here is why they should target Franck Kessie to solve their midfield.
The 23-year-old midfielder could look for an exit out of Milan with the club currently sat in 10th in the Serie A and potentially poised to rebuild. Kessie is seen as one of the club’s better players and will help the club raise funds for a much needed revamp of the squad.
The Gunners could benefit from this. They require a defensive midfielder who can put his foot on the ball and control a game. They currently do not have a player in the squad that can do this well enough and the 23-year-old Ivorian would be a real improvement in their midfield.
He has not been at his best this season but has been in a Milan side that has struggled. Kessie is comfortable receiving the ball in tight spaces and can use his dribbling ability to quickly change defence into attack.
The midfielder would bring something completely different to the Arsenal midfield and would go a long way to getting the club back to where they need to be. The Rossoneri will want a fee for Kessie, but may not have much bargaining power if the player wants a move.
