Arsenal fans have been displaying their unhappiness after the club were linked with a move for AC Milan’s Franck Kessie.
It is being reported by Sky Italy (via The Metro) that the Gunners have enquired about a move for the midfielder, however, are unwilling to meet the Italian side’s asking price of €25M (roughly £21.3m). However, the north London giants aren’t the only team interested in a transfer with Premier League rivals West Ham United also said to be looking to sign him.
One fan made it clear that the midfielder doesn’t have sufficient quality.
He’s not good enough for Arsenal

Kessie hasn’t enjoyed a good season in Serie A having featured in 16 league games as Milan sit in 10th place in the table. And in comparison to Arsenal’s midfielder, the Ivorian has averaged the same or fewer tackles per game than Mikel Arteta’s trio of Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka.
Fans were left feeling less than pleased with the news about Kessie as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the Emirates Stadium faithful:
