Reported Arsenal target Yves Bissouma’s transfer value is just going up.
The Mali international has been in fantastic form, and after dominating the midfield in Brighton’s win over Tottenham last time out, he helped his side get one over the champions at Anfield.
Liverpool’s record at home is one of the best in Europe. They are a very difficult side to beat at Anfield, even if they have a ton of injuries. However, Brighton rose to the occasion and Bissouma caught everyone’s eye.
The 24-year-old made two tackles, five interceptions, 10 recoveries and blocked two shots. He made more passes than any other Brighton player on the pitch, and if he can keep this up, a number of top clubs will join the race to sign him in the summer.
Football London revealed last month that Arsenal are interested in signing Bissouma in the summer.
The Mali international would be an incredible signing, and his performances against some of the best sides in the country show exactly that.
Arsenal have an all-action midfielder in Thomas Partey in the middle of our park. The Ghanaian can do it all, but as we have seen in recent weeks, his ability to have a real impact in the final third can be a real asset for us.
Signing Bissouma would mean Partey will have more freedom to venture forward. The duo can form one of the most solid midfield partnerships in the Premier League, and Arsenal fans are begging Mikel Arteta and Edu to get him in this summer.
