'I'd love to see him at Arsenal': Ray Parlour hails £40m star who's 'got everything'
Arsenal legend Ray Parlour has urged the Gunners to move for Yves Bissouma, a player he says has “got everything”.
The Gunners have been heavily linked with the Brighton midfielder throughout the year.
Football.london claimed in January that Arsenal had made contact with Bissouma’s representatives.
The same outlet reported in June that the Mali international had instructed his agent to try and get him to Arsenal.
However, nothing came of the speculation, and as the transfer window shut, Bissouma remained at Brighton.
The Seagulls have begun the Premier League season superbly, with four wins from five, and their midfield star is once again proving instrumental.
“He’s going to be a top star” – Parlour urges Arsenal to sign Bissouma
And Parlour, an elite midfielder in his playing days with over 300 appearances for Arsenal and a trophy-laden CV, believes Bissouma would be great for the Gunners.
“I would love to see (Bissouma) at Arsenal, I said that in the transfer window,” Parlour told talkSPORT (23/9/21, 8:40am)
“I think he’s got everything.
“He’s efficient, he can put his foot on the ball, can put his foot in as well, can pass.
“He probably could score a few more goals but he’s not in that position to score goals.
“He’s the one who’s going to keep everything ticking over.
“I’m sure Brighton had to sell one of their players and it was Ben White in the end for £50million.
“But I think he’s going to be a top star. He’s only 24 so there’s lots of time as well.”
Bissouma joined Brighton in the summer of 2018 from Lille for a reported £15.2million.
He has made 101 competitive appearances to date for the Seagulls, registering four goals and two assists.
