Arsenal and Tottenham want Yves Bissouma and have remained in contact over a potential deal for the Brighton and Hove Albion star.

Seeing Arsenal and Tottenham linked with the same players is no great surprise.

We see the two North London rivals regularly touted for the same players; Youri Tielemans and Gabriel Jesus spring to mind.

Tottenham will feel they now have an upper hand over Arsenal in any transfer battles this summer having won the scrap for fourth place in the Premier League.

That gives them Champions League football and it could help them secure top targets – targets such as Bissouma.

7 Biggest Falls From Grace in Football Since 2017

Arsenal and Tottenham want Yves Bissouma

Reports from 90Min claim that there is something of a Premier League scramble going on for Bissouma.

It’s suggested that Aston Villa would like Bissouma even after confirming the arrival of Boubacar Kamara from Marseille.

Yet it’s added that Arsenal and Tottenham have maintained contact over a potential deal for Bissouma throughout 2021.

West Ham United are also keen on Bissouma with the Brighton man attracting enormous interest ahead of the summer window.

Bissouma, 25, started 25 Premier League games this past season whilst bagging one goal and two assists.

The Malian international is a skilful ball-carrier through midfield and has been linked with a big move for some time.

Hailed as ‘sensational’ by Ian Wright, Bissouma has come in for huge praise since joining Brighton from Lille in 2018.

Bissouma is now into the final 18 months of his contract and he may feel that the time is right to move on.

It also makes sense for Brighton to cash in now rather than see him walk away in 2023.

Arsenal are looking for another midfielder to partner Thomas Partey whilst Bissouma may be viewed as competition for Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur at Tottenham.

Tottenham may feel confident after securing Champions League football, but they certainly won’t find this battle easy.
