FANS OF THE GUNNERS, GOOD MORNING
According to reports, Arsenal has joined rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United in the race to sign AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.
The 24-year-old’s contract with the Serie A club expires next summer, and he has been courted by a number of top European clubs.
Arsenal will go toe-to-toe with their rivals and European giants to sign the Ivorian, according to the Daily Mirror.
From January 1, Kessie can sign a pre-contract, putting Milan in a vulnerable position.
Meanwhile, despite having never played a senior game for Arsenal, William Saliba could be in line for a new contract.
The 20-year-old is currently on his third loan spell with the club, which will end in the summer.
According to The Athletic, Emirates executives consider tying him down to a new contract in the New Year to be “critical.”

Lille’s 24-year-old star is out of contract at the end of the season in France.
Mikel Arteta is set to lose Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny to the Africa Cup of Nations, so Sanches could be brought in early next year.
According to Le10 Sport, the Ligue 1 champions are willing to sell the player once the transfer market reopens in the summer to avoid letting him go for free.
