Liverpool hold interest in Brighton & Hove Albion’s Yves Bissouma

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Arsenal and Liverpool.

Bissouma is in his third season at the Amex Stadium, making a total of 66 appearances since the club earned promotion to the Premier League.

While the 24-year-old has not always been regarded as first choice at the Seagulls, the Mali international has produced a number of eye-catching performances.

According to talkSPORT, Arsenal and Liverpool have been monitoring the progression of Bissouma in recent months.

Transfer expert Alex Crook told the radio station: “Bissouma is a player [Mikel] Arteta is a big fan of. I know Arsenal are by no means the only big six club keeping tabs on him.

“Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is also monitoring his situation as he looks for a replacement for the out of contract Gini Wijnaldum.”

Bissouma has just over two-and-a-half years remaining on his contract at Brighton.
