Arsenal confident of winning race for Premier League midfielder

Arsenal remains confident that they will win the race for the signature of Yves Bissouma in the summer.

The Malian has emerged as one of the best midfielders in the Premier League this season.

Despite playing for Brighton, who is in the bottom half of the Premier League table, he has continued to deliver fine performances for the Seagulls.

He is expected to leave them when the transfer window reopens and he is being targeted by several top clubs.

Arsenal faces competition from the likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and West Ham for his signature, but The Daily Star says the Gunners remain confident that they will win the race.

The report says they are planning a £30million summer swoop for him as they believe he would be the perfect midfield partner for Thomas Partey at the Emirates.

The future of Mikel Arteta remains uncertain, with several reports claiming that the Spaniard could be relieved of his duty at the end of this season.

The report says even if Arteta is fired, Arsenal will still make their move for the midfielder.

The Gunners might miss out on European football unless they win the Europa League and that could see them lose out in the race for his signature.

    He’s the kind of player we need in the midfield. Good passer, tackler and energy, he’ll bring in much needed PL experience.

    We should also be in for Emi Buendia(he is championships most creator and has 14 goals), has PL experience as well

      Buendía will be waaaaay more than £30m. He’s said he’s happy, he was the best player in the championship by some margin and Norwich are in the prem. They’ll not ask for less than £50. Gaffer quoted teams would need a “silly offer”.

      Overquoted on a few of our players too, especially with the market still in recovery.

    Would be a great signing but will be in demand and will only come if we are in CL. So not likely at the moment.

  3. A J says:

    Fingers crossed.

    One of the aspects we lack – would be a very solid signing.

    No “bedding in” required as such, as he knows this league and would be ready to go !
