Arsenal makes plans for Brighton star after Norwich stance on Buendia

Arsenal has turned their attention towards signing Brighton midfielder, Yves Bissouma after learning that Norwich City will not allow the Emi Buendia to leave them this month.

The Gunners want to add a midfielder to their team before this transfer window closes and they have targeted both players.

Football London claims that while Buendia will be tough for Arsenal to sign, a move for Bissouma is very possible.

The Malian left Lille for Brighton in 2018 and he has a good relationship with Gabriel Magalhaes, whom the Gunners just signed.

The report even claims that he is an Arsenal fan and would be happy to play for the north London side.

The Gunners have been tracking him for some time now, and they could lure him with the promise of handing him his favourite shirt number.

He wears the number 8 jersey at Brighton and he would love to get the same number at the Emirates.

That might not be possible because Dani Ceballos wears that number at the Emirates right now.

However, the Spaniard is only at Arsenal on loan, and he could return to Real Madrid at the end of this season and free the number.

    Why do arsenal keep wasting money on midfield when they have got Quenduzi already just need to sort out the problem

    1. jowe says:

      This guy is a monster, check out his video. Perfect partner for Partey.

    2. Jon says:

      Exactly, I always liked Guendouzi.

      1. Defund The Media says:

        As did I until he slagged off brighton players for earning less money than him, outrageously disrespectful.

    3. zamind says:

      He crossed Artetas line.

    4. Gogo says:

      Truth be told Guendouzi only has a big heart not much ability. He loses the ball too often, Bissouma is cool, calm, strong and progressesthe ball well. Wins many duels. Not a busy body type like GuenzGuendousi and Cabellos. Elneny and Xhaka are nt our future so we need to move now.

      Midfield of Partey Rowe and Bissouma would be nice and strong.

  2. Grandad says:

    Bissouma could turn out to be the DM we have been crying out for almost a decade.He has similar attributes to Ndtiti of Leicester .Very athletic , with good pace in recovery an asset which is lacking in Xhaka,Elneny, Ceballos and for his fans, Guendouzi.He is very good technically and can be used effectively as a DM or a B to B operator.A totally different player to Buendia but a class act who would compliment the more attacking minded Partey.As a pair they would represent a very strong engine room to support our talented forwards.

    1. Gogo says:

      Sounds l,music to my ears. Thanks Grandad

    2. ozziegunner says:

      Can’t agree more, Grandad; Yves Bissouma is the type of specialist DM, Arsenal has needed since Gilberto Silva left.
      He is a totally different type of player to Guendouzi.

  3. MrLucky says:

    He is just a poor man’s Partey. We don’t need him. We need a world class creative midfielder, or someone like Brandt behind ESR as ESR is injury prone and Brandt can also play in different positions

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Partey is a box to box midfielder, whereas Bissouma is a DM, two totally different players.

      1. MrLucky says:

        Both are dynamic, strong midfielders who can operate as both a defensive shield or a B2B. Partey is just stronger, better dribbeler, better passer and has a better long range strike, but both are reckless in the tackle and will always be a challenge away from a second booking

  4. The Real Vieira Lynn says:

    I only care if he’s an undervalued high floor/high ceiling prospect and I’m not sure I have faith in our management team to make that crucial determination…what I don’t want is another case of us settling for the supposed cheaper option, who for all intents and purposes is functionally coin toss proposition, then have it cost us exponentially more in the long run…I like Bissouma as a player but he’s been playing a much more defensive role recently, so are we getting him to address our creative midfielder issues and have Partey play deeper or are we wanting him to play deeper and Partey farther forward, but if that’s the case, why are we talking about a creative midfielder if they think Partey is that player etc…the usual Arsenal hurlyburly mindf**k

    1. ozziegunner says:

      If the box to box midfielder is Partey and the DM Bissouma, then Smith-Rowe has the physical support in midfield to play that attacking CM role, until Arsenal goes into the market in the summer.

  5. Abdul iliyasu salifu says:

    Why not arsenal spend the money that will be used in the summer to buy right now as Liverpool did for VVD.

    Buy Buendia and Bissouma.Both won’t cost us more than 50m

    Partey is a typical no.8,Bissouma typical no.6.The midfield will be solid.

    With this two additions our attacking players can attack without fear.with determination and consistency,we will be the team to beat in England and Europe.

    We can will EPL in two years and CL in three years to come.

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Abdul, both good value young players with proven EPL experience and untapped potential to strengthen Arsenal’s midfield, if they can be prised from Norwich and Brighton, respectively.
      At least you know what you are getting, whereas players like Aouar, are going to cost more and may not settle easily.
