West Ham United are reportedly ready to join the race to sign AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie, who may leave San Siro this summer.

West Ham United have reportedly identified AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie as a possible addition during the summer window.

Kessie has been a first-team regular during his two years at San Siro, making a total of 71 starts from a possible 76 in Serie A.

However, Milan's ongoing issues with FFP means that a number of clubs are ready to make an approach for the 22-year-old, who is said to be valued in the region of £30m.

The Express claims that West Ham are ready to join London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal in the race for the Ivory Coast international.

The report suggests that any bid could depend on whether Declan Rice - an alleged target for Manchester City - leaves the Hammers in the coming months.

They may face a fight to convince Kessie into a move, however, as the player prioritises a switch to a club who have secured European football for next season.
