If Arsenal fans were asked to name their dream summer signing to strengthen Mikel Arteta’s midfield, most supporters’ pick would be Yves Bissouma.
The Brighton and Hove Albion star has had a phenomenal campaign in the Premier League this term. He has arguably been the best defensive midfielder in the country, and he is almost guaranteed to join a bigger club this summer.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with a move for Bissouma for over six months now.
Football London revealed earlier this year that the Mali international is a life-long Gooner and he would love to move to the Emirates this summer.
It was claimed that he is in constant contact with his former Lille teammates Nicolas Pepe and Gabriel Magalhaes, and his interaction with the latter at the Emirates after the game on Sunday showed just how close they are with each other.
Arsenal fans think Yves Bissouma has dropped a big hint
Some Arsenal fans felt that pictures on and off the pitch with Pepe was Bissouma’s big hint about a summer move. However, the Brighton man has dropped an even bigger hint on Instagram now.
Bissouma posted a picture of his personal trainer, Wilfried, on his Instagram story yesterday and an Arsenal product – potentially from the club shop at the Emirates after his recent visit – is clearly visible in the background.
That’s no confirmation whatsoever, but Arsenal fans are convinced that Bissouma is on his way to Arsenal this summer.
