Arsenal interest downplayed as Romano claims club eyeing ‘something different’

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Arsenal’s interest in Yves Bissouma is not strong at present.

The Gunners have been strongly linked with an interest in the Brighton midfielder’s signature, but ahead our Premier League clash with his side this weekend, Romano has downplayed our interest.

“He’s been linked to Arsenal yes, but I’m told he’s not the hottest name for Arsenal, you know. They are looking for something different. For United, at the moment, no, but we’re in May, so let’s see what happens,” Romano told the United Stand.

It could be that his current club are pricing us out of the player’s signature, or it could be that we’re simply analysing alternative options in midfield.

We most definitely do need to sign a midfielder this summer however, with Dani Ceballos set to return to Real Madrid at the end of his loan deal this summer.

Miguel Azeez is tipped to get opportunities within the first-team squad next season, but it remains to be seen whether he will hit the ground running when stepping up, and you would be shocked if a more senior option wasn’t added to the squad this summer.

Is Bissouma the ideal addition to our squad?

    Surely we do need a strong presence in the middle of the field. Is Bissouma going to be the man? I guess time will tell…

  3. Sean Williams says:

    Bissouma and Buendia.

  4. Grandad says:

    Where exactly would you play Buendia Sean?

  5. CorporateMan says:

    I would go for Bissouma any day. Reasons are legion!
    My only deep concern is that signing him would mean having up to four absentees(three of them midfielders) while the African Nations tournament lasts between January and February next year.
    I’m sure this is playing in the minds of those who run the club
    If we don’t get him, we should look for a player of companie quality, not Sander Berge please

      Spot on CM.

  6. sydney says:

    I rather we go for lille boukary soumare he’s cheaper

    1. siamois says:

      Apparently Leicester have agreed a deal with Lille for Soumare.

  7. LOngbenark says:

    bring back Saliba,Get patson daka,

    If we can get Grealish, would be great, else we get Marcos ilorente, mattheu pereira,

    It’s important we start winning Ariel balls and also increase goal scoring from setpieces.

  8. RFrancis says:

    Bissouma is not the right candidate at this time, especially when riced at 40M. He doesn’t score enough goals. A Ramsey-type player would be my ideal candidate.

  9. MrLucky says:

    Judging a defensive midfielder on his goals.. Im glad most of the ppl on here arent in charge of our tranfers.

    Signing Traore?? Because we need his 2 goals and 2 assists that much?

    In my eyes we need a more technical CM to parter Partey. We need a new Santi/Wilshere. Locatelli would be my ideal choice. Also with the Afcon in mind
