Arsenal fans have been disagreeing with the club’s attempts to, reportedly, sign AC Milan’s Franck Kessie.
It is being claimed by Corriere Dello Sport (via Sport Witness), the midfielder is one of the players who has been transfer-listed by the Italian as they undergo an overhaul. The Gunners are thought to be interested, however, face competition from West Ham United over his signature.
One supporter wasn’t a big fan of the player as they voiced their opinion on Kessie.

Meanwhile, another fan wasn’t keen and touted Napoli’s Allan, a target for the Gooners in the past, as someone he’d rather get.

The move would represent a pretty big U-turn from head coach Mikel Arteta, who claimed after the game against Crystal Palace that he wasn’t ‘expecting many things’ in terms of transfers (via talkSPORT). In comparison to Arsenal’s deep-lying midfielders, Kessie has a lower pass accuracy in league games than the Swiss ace, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi.
Fans were left disapproving of the reports to sign the African as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the Emirates Stadium faithful:
