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?
