Why Kessie's move to Wolves collapsed

AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie rejected a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers because they failed to meet his wage demands, according to Corriere dello Sport.

The Premier League club was said to have agreed a £30 million deal with Milan on transfer deadline day in England but failed to seal an agreement with the Ivory Coast international.

Wolves offered weekly wages of around £50,000 but Kessie was demanding a fee in excess of £70,000.

The Evening Standard reported the Gunners are willing to listen to offers for the Egypt international who made just eight Premier League appearances last season.

During the week, Galatasaray held talks with the midfielder and Arsenal but they failed to reach an agreement with both parties.

Babacar set to join Lecce

Senegal forward Khouma Babacar is set to join newly-promoted Lecce on a season-long loan from Sassuolo.

The 26-year-old is set to leave Sassuolo after a year and a half for improved game time.

Alfredo Pedulla claimed the two clubs have reached an agreement but they await Babacar's decision to finalise the deal.
