Aston Villa are still looking to sign Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma during the January transfer window.
That’s according to Sky Sports reporter Rob Dorsett, with a number of Villa fans reacting to the update on social media.
Bissouma at Villa?
Yes, get him in!
No, we can do better!
Steven Gerrard has already bolstered his midfield ranks in 2022 by bringing in Philippe Coutinho on loan, and it appears as if a holding midfielder is next on the radar following Marvelous Nakamba’s serious knee injury.
Bissouma is capable of playing in a defensive or central midfield role and has made 100 Premier League appearances for the Seagulls – he averages 3.6 tackles per game this season, far more than any Villa player.
Villa fans react
@villareport relayed Dorsett’s claim on Twitter soon after, with these Villa supporters buzzing and one labelling the Brighton man as a ‘game changer’.
“This one would be the game changer. He is so good”
“Top six incoming The league best be afraid”
“Make it happen”
“If we actually pull Yves Bissouma off, it’ll be scary hours.”
