Newcastle United are reportedly considering whether to join the race to sign AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.

AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Newcastle United.

With the Magpies expected to be purchased by a Saudi Arabia-based consortium, there is persistent speculation regarding a number of high-profile arrivals at St James' Park.

According to MilanLive, Kessie is the latest player to be identified by the Premier League outfit as a possible addition during the next window.

Although the Ivory Coast international has been a key man at San Siro since 2017, it has been widely claimed that Milan are ready to cash in on the 23-year-old.

Even before the coronavirus pandemic, there was a suggestion that Milan would be willing to do business for a fee in the region of £25m.

Arsenal, Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United have also been linked with an approach for the player.
