Brighton set their price for Arsenal, Liverpool target Bissouma

Brighton have set their price for Yves Bissouma.

The Sun says Brighton have slapped a £40m price-tag on Bissouma in response to interest in the midfielder from Liverpool and Arsenal.

The 24-year-old has made 33 Premier League starts this season under Graham Potter, whose side have often produced performances far better than their league position would suggest.

Bissouma has been a key part of that, and as a result has attracted attention from clubs looking to bolster their midfield options this summer.

His contract runs until 2023 and unless Brighton can persuade him to extend that deal soon, they risk a situation next summer where they may be forced to sell a player with just 12 months left on his contract.
