Man City weigh up bid for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma

Manchester City are weighing up a move for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma.

The Malian international - who is also being courted by several other Premier League clubs - is said to be a potential long-term replacement for Fernandinho at City.

Bissouma has starred for the Seagulls since joining for £15million from Lille in 2018.

City are looking to recruit a central midfielder in the upcoming transfer window, with Fernandinho out of contract this summer and yet to agree a new deal, says the Mirror.

Bissouma joined Brighton for £15m from Lille in 2018 and has been a huge success, his impressive displays catching the eye of bigger Premier League clubs.

The Seagulls accept they are likely to lose Bissouma this summer, but will hold out for at least £30million, doubling their outlay on him.
