Yves Bissouma's performance in the Premier League this season has been nothing short of stellar in the Brighton midfield.
Yves Bissouma has been courted by a number of clubs and has reportedly chosen his future club for next season. The Seagulls' shirt is becoming too small for the Malian Eagle. According to football.london, Bissouma has told his agent that he wants a move to Arsenal this summer.
The tabloid explains that the Gunners have not yet made contact with the player's entourage about a transfer for the Mali international. But it seems that the Emirates Stadium would be attracted to such a profile.
Bissouma seems to be an ideal recruit for Arsenal at the moment. With more quality in their midfield, which has been disappointing this season in the Premier League. We imagine that Bissouma could be a great addition to Granit Xhaka and Mohamed Elneny.
Liverpool are also interested
Yves Bissouma is appreciated in England. He has made 36 appearances (1 goal) and has been huge this year with 46% of passes per game. In addition to making 104 tackles, 64 clearances, 271 recoveries and 227 duels won, the Malian was one of the best in his position this year. Hence Liverpool's interest too.
The Reds have just lost Georginio Wijnaldum, so a place is available in midfield. However, it seems that Bissouma would prefer to join Arsenal if he has the choice. But Liverpool would surely offer the former Lille man a better chance of success.
