'Super': Tottenham have just signed themselves a 'great person', according to one former teammate
Tottenham have been busying away this summer and one of the big name signings they’ve added to the squad is midfielder, Yves Bissouma.
The now ex-Brighton man has joined Spurs for a fee that could rise to as much as £35m over time. The Mali international had been a wanted man for some time, and it was Tottenham who eventually beat north London rivals Arsenal to his signature.
Bissouma will be hoping to slot in quickly at Spurs under Antonio Conte. And listening to his former teammate, Pascal Gross, it should be no problem at all for Bissouma.
“It was to be expected that he would take the next step. He is a super central midfield player and also a great person. We have to absorb this collectively,” Gross told The Argus.
Bissouma will battle it out in the middle of the park with Pierre Hojbjerg and Rodrigo Bentancur. His arrival is also set to push Harry Winks out of the exit door, although Oliver Skipp will remain part of Conte’s plans.
Certainly, if Bissouma can reach the levels he did at Brighton, then Tottenham will be a happy club this season.
TBR’s View: Bissouma Can Fly For Tottenham
Well, not literally, but the midfielder can be a crucial player for this Spurs side under Conte’s watch.
Bissouma has been outstanding under Graham Potter at Brighton and there is little reason to believe he won’t make a huge impact at Tottenham. Yes, he faces bigger competition for places now. But he’s more than good enough to compete and make his mark.
Gross’s comments are a nice touch here though. It shows an appreciation for a former teammate and Spurs fans will be delighted to read they are getting a good character in the building.
