Aston Villa, Arsenal and Newcastle are all keen on midfielder Yves Bissouma, with Brighton recently rejecting a £30m bid.
That’s according to French journalist and commentator Fabrice Hawkins, and, as to be expected, a number of Villa fans have been reacting to the news on social media.
Bissouma at Villa?
Yes, get him in!
No, we can do better!
Sam Wallace of The Telegraph labelled a move for the Seagulls star as a difficult and potentially expensive one but not impossible.
Hawkins took to Twitter on Tuesday evening, claiming Brighton have rejected a £30m offer. He doesn’t name where the offer came from, but Villa, Arsenal and Newcastle are all name-checked with an interest.
Villa fans react
The AVFC Faithful relayed Hawkins’ claim regarding Bissouma on social media. This is what these Villa supporters had to say in reply, with a few urging the club to get a move over the line and another labelling the midfielder as a potential ‘superstar’.
“Make it happen!”
“Give them what they want boys!!!”
“Stump up the £45m lads. Suarez and Bissouma + CB and we can get 7th imo”
“Smart anchor bid, now Make it £35m as a final offer.”
“I think £40m plus add ons gets him”
“£50m get it done. Exactly what we need and potential to become a superstar.”
