West Ham are interested in signing AC Milan central midfielder Frank Kessie in the summer.

According to Tuttosport, via Calcio Mercato, Kessie is on West Ham’s radar ahead of the next transfer window at the end of the season.

The report does, however, claim that Milan are not willing to lose Kessie – who has been in superb form for the Italian giants this year.

Milan are currently third in the Serie A table and look on course to secure Champions League football for next campaign.

Kessie has scored four times in the Serie A this season, after netting five times in 37 league appearances in his first season at the San Siro.

The 22-year-old has been capped 25 times by Ivory Coast, but he is yet to score for his country.

The report does not state how much Milan would demand for Kessie if West Ham were to make a move for the midfielder.
