The summer transfer window was an emotional ride that saw Cristiano Ronaldo move to Manchester United and Lionel Messi move to PSG, among other transfers.Despite clubs trying to save as much as possible due to the covid pandemic, the usual suspects like Chelsea, Manchester City, and Manchester United all spent the big bucks this offseason to prepare their teams for the new season.
Now things have already begun to heat up for the January window as Mali international midfielder Yves Bissouma has become a target of three of the biggest clubs of the Premier League.
Yves Bissouma currently plays for Brighton & Hove Albion where he has scored 2 goals in 89 games, and to open up this season Bissouma provided an assist to lead his club to a 2-0 win over Watford. Who are the three teams chasing the Mali midfielder valued at £40 million? Find out here.
It is reported in the Sun that Arsenal have been keeping close tabs on Bissouma, where he would fit in the lineup remains to be seen, but he could certainly help the Gunners for sure given their less than spectacular start to the season.
Liverpool is always in the market for players with the characteristics of Bissouma. Fast and good build up play would be more than welcomed. Could he be an out and out starter? Most likely not, but a good role player for sure.
This one is a bit tricky; it is doubtful Manchester United would be in the market for a player like Yves Bissouma. If Paul Pogba were to leave for a big money move during the transfer window in January for example, Bissouma could be a good filler solution as Man U thinks of a long-term solution, still, given how the red devils have stacked up this season it’s doubtful Pogba goes anywhere.
