According to ESPN, Liverpool are considering a move for Brighton’s Yves Bissouma although the Reds aren’t the only ones in the race for the 24-year-old. The Mali star signed for the Seagulls in 2018 and has become a key part of Graham Potter’s side with him playing all but one game this season.
Despite an excellent recruitment system and them being a mid-table club, Brighton have managed to keep ahold of their best stars over the last few years. That includes Ben White, Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster, Pascal Gross, Neal Maupay, and a few others with the club rarely forced to sell a player. That has been the case ever since the Seagulls got promoted to the Premier League at the end of the 2016/17 season although things could change in January.
ESPN have reported that Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma is at the top of Liverpool’s shopping list as the Reds look to reinforce their midfield. The 24-year-old has been arguably one of Brighton’s best players this season and the report has indicated that Liverpool believe that the Mali midfielder is the perfect man to replace the outgoing Gini Wijnaldum. The Dutch midfielder’s contract expires at the end of this season and with his future still up in the air, the Reds have started looking at replacements with Bissouma at the top of their shortlist.
However, they aren’t the only ones with Manchester United, Monaco, and a few clubs from Spain also linked with a move for Bissouma in January. But with Brighton valuing the midfielder at £30 million, double what they signed him for, it could put a few clubs off the potential move.
