Kevin Campbell makes claim about Arsenal-linked midfielder Yves Bissouma

Kevin Campbell has claimed that he’s heard Brighton’s Yves Bissouma would like a summer transfer move to Arsenal.

Bissouma, 24, has been heavily linked with a potential switch to the Emirates Stadium.

The Sun mentioned earlier in May that Arsenal would need at least £40million to sign midfield target Bissouma from Brighton. Meanwhile, well-respected journalist Fabrizio Romano has since reported that the Brighton ace may no longer be the “hottest name” on their transfer target list. 

Arsenal-supporting pundit Campbell has urged his former club to try sign him, as well as sharing what he’s heard about him.

“I’m hearing that he (Bissouma) wants to come to Arsenal. Arsenal have got to make some moves and get him,” Campbell told Highbury Squad.

TBR’s View:

Bissouma is a name that has been circling around the Arsenal transfer rounds for a few weeks now, but it’s no clearer right now on where he’ll be playing football next season. 

The Gunners need a strong recruitment this summer to get themselves back into the European positions and at least try to challenge around the top four.

Bissouma ticks so many boxes for the north London club.

Mikel Arteta’s side are crying out for a physical, energetic and ball-winning central midfielder to come into the squad just like him.

The Brighton star has proven what a talent he can be in the Premier League with his style a perfect fit and Arsenal need to do everything they can to try land him.

It would be a step in the right direction to address a key area of the pitch.
