PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN are reportedly ahead of Arsenal and Chelsea in the race to sign Franck Kessie.
The AC Milan midfielder, 22, is under contract 2021 after joining on loan with a compulsory purchase.
And Calciomercato reports PSG will be in pole position to land the ace if the Italian outfit decide to cash in this summer.
Milan are facing a penalty for breaching FFP and are waiting to see what punishment is dished out.
They may be forced to sell stars in the summer and Kessie could become available.
The Ivory Coast midfielder has thrived since joining Milan on a two-year loan from Atalanta in 2017 – playing 81 times in two seasons.
AC Milan are obligated to buy him for £24m, which could prove difficult with an FFP rap hanging over them.
Reports have suggested Chelsea will offer Tiemoue Bakayoko in a part-exchange deal.
