Liverpool are preparing a double swoop for Arsenal star Bukayo Saka and AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.

Saka, 20, has been the Gunners’ standout player over the past 18 months and shone for England at Euro 2020.

Though he has a contract at his boyhood club until 2024, the Express believe the Reds are keen to sign the winger.

Arsenal are also looking to tie Saka down to a new, more lucrative deal at the Emirates and are adamant they will not sell him.

But reports suggest that Saka and his representatives could be interested in a move to Anfield.

Though Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are improving every week, the Englishman would challenge for trophies immediately under Jurgen Klopp.

And Diogo Jota has proven since his move from Wolves in 2020 that breaking into the Reds’ frontline is not an impossible task.

Kessie, meanwhile, is out of contract at AC Milan at the end of the campaign and looks set to leave the San Siro.

Reports in Italy suggest that Liverpool are looking to sign a pre-contract agreement with the midfielder and have already offered him a deal.

The Reds are still looking to bolster their midfield after Gini Wijnaldum’s summer departure and Kessie, 25, fits the bill.

He has played more than 205 times for Milan, scoring five in 16 Serie A games this term.

Manchester United have previously been heavily linked with the Ivory Coast international.
