Wolves lodge €28m bid to reunite Cutrone with Arsenal midfield target

Franck Kessie could follow Patrick Cutrone from AC Milan to Wolves after the Premier League side tabled a bid for the midfielder, according to reports.

Wolves completed the eye-catching signing of Italy striker Cutrone on Tuesday, in a deal worth around £16m.

Now, they could go back into negotiations with the Serie A side over another target, with an offer being made for the Ivorian international.

According to SportMediaset (via SempreMilan), Wolves have bid around €28m for the 22-year-old, who completed a permanent move to Milan this summer after a two-year loan.

The report claims that Kessie may need some convincing to accept the switch, but new Rossoneri coach Marco Giampaolo is yet to make a judgement on the player after he arrived back late for pre-season after his involvement at the African Cup of Nations.

Milan are trying to close a deal for €50m-rated Atletico Madrid forward Angel Correa, and having already spent big on the likes of Rafael Leao and Theo Hernandez this summer, need to offload some players to balance the books.

Previous reports have indicated that Kessie is one of the players Milan are willing to sacrifice in their attempts to sign Correa, so Wolves may have some hope of completing a deal.

Kessie has previously been linked with Arsenal, but a swap proposal with Lucas Torreira was rebuffed.
