Brighton respond as Liverpool make late approach to sign Yves Bissouma

Liverpool have made a late enquiry to Brighton about the possibility of signing Yves Bissouma this summer, according to reports.

The 24-year-old midfielder has attracted plenty of interest this summer with Arsenal and Manchester United both considering a move for him.

But, the Daily Express claims that Jurgen Klopp is keen to strengthen his midfield to compensate for Georginio Wijnaldum’s exit to PSG and Liverpool have now made an approach for Bissouma.

However, Brighton have responded by telling the Reds that they want £40 million for the player

Bissouma, who moved to the Premier League club in a £15m deal from Lille in 2018, still has two years left on his current contract.

Brighton, meanwhile, are also under no pressure to sell any more of their important players before the end of the window having received £50m from Arsenal for Ben White last month.

When asked about Bissouma’s future this week, Brighton head coach Graham Potter said that the midfielder is ‘happy’ at the club.

‘It feels like they’ve been asked for the last few months, so we’re used to it,’ said Potter.

‘But it’s good, if you’re getting that talk then he’s doing something well, we’re doing something well. ‘He’s enjoying his football, he showed his qualities at the weekend, I thought he was fantastic.

‘You can’t control what people say from the outside, it’s talk, but he’s happy with us and we will keep working with him.’
