Arsenal confident of deal for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma

Arsenal are confident of a deal for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma.

The Daily Mail says Arsenal are confident of fending off competition from other clubs to prise Bissouma away from Brighton for £30million.

The North London giants are known to be admirers of the Mali international, who is understood to be a 'huge fan' of the Gunners.

It was reported in March that Mikel Arteta's side asked to be 'kept informed' of the 24-year-old's situation at the Amex Stadium ahead of a potential summer swoop.

Liverpool have also been heavily linked with the ex-Lille midfielder as a potential replacement for Barcelona target Georginio Wijnaldum.

But it is Arsenal that are winning the race to sign Bissouma with the FA Cup holders confident of securing his services.
