Aston Villa will go head to head with Arsenal for £50 million midfielder in the summer

Yves Bissouma will become the subject of a transfer tug of war between Arsenal and Aston Villa in the summer.

The Malian midfielder has been in fine form at Brighton where he has just 18 months left on his current deal.

The Sun maintains Arsenal remains interested in a move for the former Lille star.

He looks set to run down his contract with the Seagulls, which makes a summer move likely.

Arsenal will look to replace the outgoing Mohamed Elneny at the end of this season and Bissouma is one of the best players they can get.

However, Steven Gerrard’s Villa is prepared to land him as well.

The Daily Mail claims they decided against moving for him last month because his present club wants £50 million.

They would now look to reignite their interest in his signature when the season draws to a close.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Bissouma has been one of the finest midfielders in the Premier League over the last few seasons.

He keeps getting better and would be a solid addition to Mikel Arteta’s squad.

Villa has become one of the most ambitious EPL sides in recent seasons, but Arsenal should beat them to his signature.

  1. There’s a sexual assault investigation that is looming over his head. I can’t see any team entertaining a transfer until there is an outcome. At least I hope not.

      Don’t mention that. I tried doing so a few times and had my posts deleted by admin.
      Sad part is, many on here call Matteo “poisonous” because he throttled an opposing player, yet have no problem with us signing Bissouma, sexual assault charges and all…Go figure 🤔

    2. Voyager YES AND YOU BEAT ME TO THE PUNCH IN MENTIONING THIS MATTER. I actually believe this is the reason we have not pursued this player and may never do so.

      After reading the Mason Greenwood story at United, I suggest no fan nor manager wants a possible wrong ‘un anywhere near their club. Character is as vital a talent.

      I suggest we want no more Ozil , Auba or Walcott types of lazy half hearted non tryers . Not at any price, which is why MA has sensibly got them all out, even at a financial loss.

      1. Check out what is happening right now to Raith Rovers in the Scottish Championship after signing Goodwillie. Every case is different but no club wants that kind of PR

        Times are thankfully a-changing.

        1. I did Voyageur! All power to those who reacted to the Goodwillie signing. Not a pleasant man if you read about his past from at least 10 years back.

  2. Sky said yesterday that villa were quoted 35mil so not sure why it would suddenly become 50 mil in the summer when he will have less time left on his contract
    Please lets have real facts & not just articles for the sake of it

  3. Here we go again….trying to link a player with a checkered past with our club and the gunslinger, Arteta. I wonder which player will be next – Greenwood, Mendy?
