Tottenham Hotspur have been approached by agents as they offer out Brighton star Yves Bissouma, according to a recent report.
The Lowdown: Conte prepares…
The Lilywhites have already confirmed the signings of both Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster on Bosman deals as their transfer window well and truly gets underway.
Midfield is an area of the squad where Conte allegedly wishes to make new additions, and according to a report by Claret & Hugh, they have been offered Bissouma.
The Latest: Agents approach Spurs over Bissouma…
Claret & Hugh now claim that the north Londoners are one of three clubs to have been ‘approached’ by agents over the possibility of signing the Brighton midfielder.
The Seagulls have apparently now placed a £25m price tag on the Malian’s head as the 25-year-old enters the final year of his contract, although the report doesn’t go into further detail over Spurs’ response to the intermediary contact.
The Verdict: Seize the chance?
According to WhoScored, Bissouma finished 2021/22 as one of Graham Potter’s standout men, making more tackles and interceptions per 90 than any Brighton player.
The Mali international has received numerous plaudits for his top-flight performances over the last two seasons, with members of the media even hailing Bissouma as an ‘absolute monster’ (Aaron Stokes, The Chronicle).
Gary Lineker is another pundit to have sung the praises of the Brighton gem, labelling him ‘exceptional‘, and we believe that £25m could be a very reasonable price to pay for the player.
