Yves Bissouma requests to leave Brighton to boost Arsenal’s chances of signing him

Arsenal has been handed a boost in their bid to sign Yves Bissouma this summer after the midfielder asked to leave Brighton.

The Malian has been on the radar of Arsenal for much of this season after becoming one of the best box-to-box players in the Premier League.

He has been one reason why Brighton plays a fine brand of football and he will certainly play for a top team soon.

The next season could see him become a member of a new team and Arsenal will want that to be them.

Brighton wants to keep hold of all their top players as they look to become a mainstay in the Premier League, but the Sunday Times, says the midfielder has asked to leave.

He wants to play for a big team and has told them to accept an offer for his signature if a credible one arrives.

This means Arsenal will now have to battle with Liverpool and Manchester City, who also want to sign him.

The report says the Reds have been watching him and see him as the ideal replacement for the outgoing Georginio Wijnaldum.

City and Liverpool will offer him European football and that could act as a disadvantage to the Gunners.

    But surely, finishing in the top four and thereby guaranteed CL football is not what a section of our fanbase thought /considered as a success?
    Surely signing for a club that, probably, will be finishing half way down the table and will not be playing European football, will not influence a player?

    For all I know, the pull of playing for The Arsenal will see us able to attract ANY player… in FACT, we couldn’t sign the players that UE and AW wanted when we WERE in european football!!!!

    Funny old game.

      the fans just want big spending, big tag and big name players

      It seems 300m spend in the last 3 years is not enough…..Pep spent 1 Billion in 10 years.

      to the fans, if the clubs spend more than 500m in a window sign a few big name and big tag players, the club is guaranteed to become champions without kicking a ball……

    all we have to do is roll out the old Willian recruitment pitch script…offer him a ridiculous term, at three times his expected wage, with guarantees about a starting position regardless of performance

    There is also something to be said for playing in the nations capital and not crime infested sh*tholes such as manchester and liverpool

    1. Grandad says:

      London is not immune to criminal activity and may even surpass Manchester and Liverpool.

    The drawback of this deal if it went through is the potential loss of both Bissouma and Partey to AFCON. And Elneny as well if he stays with us. That will leave us too light in the middle

    Apparently, Bissouma said he wants to play for a big team, not ex big team.
