London trio Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and West Ham United are reportedly keen on AC Milan's Franck Kessie.

Franck Kessie of AC Milan is challenged by Mirco Antenucci of Spal during the Serie A match between Spal and AC Milan at Stadio Paolo Mazza on May 26, 2019 in Ferrara, Italy.

Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and West Ham United will all be battling for those European places next season, with some ahead of others in the pecking order.

A big summer awaits the London trio, who will be well aware that their up and coming transfer business will play a huge part in what happens when the first ball is kicked for the 2019/20 Premier League campaign. 

The Express are claiming that Tottenham, Arsenal and West Ham have shown an interest in AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, who is searching for European football. 


It is said that Milan are willing to listen to offers of over £30 million for the 22-year-old as they battle to balance the books for Financial Fair Play. 

Given the report states that Kessie wants to move to a team that is playing European football, that instantly gives Tottenham and Arsenal an advantage and if the young midfielder had a choice, he should pick Spurs

Mauricio Pochettino's side, who concluded the recent Premier League campaign by finishing in the top four and then reaching the Champions League final, are on the up and if they can add more legs to their squad then it will make them a dangerous force in the near future.

Spurs are yet to take that next step in the ladder, but investment is needed in the squad and a player like Kessie, who is a box-to-box midfielder, would provide great quality to Pochettino's team. 

On the other hand, from an individual perspective, if he were to move to Arsenal then he'd join a team that is playing Europa League football and not Champions League football. 

Added with that, they need a far bigger rebuilding job than their North London rivals and from a selfish point of view, it may not help Kessie's development, at this moment in time, if he were to move to the Emirates.
