Liverpool set to replace Wijnaldum with Brighton star Yves Bissouma

Yves Bissouma had a wonderful season with the seagulls. During the 2020/21 season, he had the most tackles and his performances drew a lot of attention.Brighton have apparently set a £40m price tag on his head, despite interest from both Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool and Mikel Arteta's Arsenal.

Liverpool now appear to be winning the hunt for the Mali international, according to Fabrizio Romano.“I'm told he's not the hottest name for Arsenal, you know,” the Italian football journalist added.

“They're on the lookout for anything unique.”It was widely assumed that Arteta saw the ace as the ideal partner to team up with Thomas Partey next season.

However, it appears that the Spaniard is seeking for a player who differs from Bissouma in terms of strengths.The ace was rumored to be a lifelong Arsenal fan, but a dream move to the club now appears unlikely.Instead, he might be slugging it out at Anfield with the likes of Thiago and Jordan Henderson.

Liverpool are looking for a successor for Georginio Wijnaldum, who is set to leave the club. After three seasons in the top flight with the South Coast Mariners, Bissouma appears to be an ideal candidate. Bissouma has a contract with the Amex until 2023, and his club, Graham Potter's, is not interested in moving him. However, if a large sum of money is offered, they may be forced to do so.
