Brighton star ‘wants to leave’ this summer – ‘host of sides interested’



According to reports, Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma ‘wants to leave’ the club this summer amid interest from a ‘host of sides’.

Following a spell in France with Lille, Bissouma made the move to Brighton in 2018. They brought him in ahead of their second season in the Premier League.

The Mali international has played 117 times for the Seagulls across all competitions over the past four seasons.

Every Premier League club’s worst signing of the season

In this time, Bissouma has shone for Brighton as he has gained admirers from their rivals in the Premier League.

Aston Villa were reportedly interested in the midfielder in January. He has also been linked with the likes of Tottenham and Man Utd in recent months.

Brighton were quoting clubs £50m in January for their prized asset. If he is to leave this summer, the fee will likely be lower as his contract expires in 2023.

90min are reporting that Bissouma has told Brighton that he ‘wants to leave’ this summer.

It is stated that a ‘host of sides have shown an interest’ in signing him.

Speaking last month, former Man Utd midfielder Paul Ince suggested that Bissouma is the answer to the midfield problems at Old Trafford.

Ince reckons Bissouma would help Scott McTominay in the middle of the park.

“You have to look at United’s recruitment. They didn’t know about Bissouma, now he’s at Brighton and might cost £40m.

“They didn’t know about Kante, now he’s at Chelsea. All these players have been about but why have United not spotted them?

“They need to get someone like Bissouma because the midfield needs to change. Fred’s not the answer, McTominay is one of those who’s a good player but would be better with someone like Bissouma next to him. Is Pogba going to stay? I can’t see it. It’s not just about two midfield players.

“They need a striker, too. Haaland’s a tricky one because of the situation with his dad and Keane at Old Trafford. I can’t see him going to Old Trafford just based on that, and if there’s no Champions League he definitely won’t.”
