‘Spurs would be silly not to’: Journalist backs ‘incredible’ £30m PL star for summer move amid N17 links

Tottenham Hotspur would be “silly not to” make an approach for Yves Bissouma, according to journalist Ryan Taylor.

Spurs have been linked with the Brighton star this year, as have north London rivals Arsenal.

The Times recently reported that Antonio Conte’s Tottenham are rivalling Aston Villa for Bissouma.

However, Calciomercato recently claimed that the Mali international is close to joining the Gunners.

There haven’t been too many reports suggesting a breakthrough with Arsenal, so Spurs should still be in the race.

With Harry Winks seemingly looking like he’ll leave Tottenham soon, this will open up a midfield slot at N17.

And Bissouma, one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, would be a good shout for Spurs.

Graham Potter has labelled the 25-year-old “incredible” and Ian Wright called him “sensational“.

West Ham and England star Declan Rice, meanwhile, said Bissouma is a “real great player”.

With his contract expiring next summer, 90Min reckons Brighton could be willing to do business starting at £30million.

“Someone that could move on this summer”

Taylor, writing on GiveMeSport, believes Bissouma will leave this summer, and thinks Spurs should move for him.

“I think if we see on the basis of how well he played against Spurs when Brighton won 1-0, I think Spurs would be silly not to really have a look at him,” wrote the Express journalist.

“And given that his contract expires next summer, realistically, Brighton will have to consider any offers that arrive on the table.

“See, that hasn’t always been the case. They rejected a, I think it was a £30 million bid from Villa in January, but I see Bissouma as someone that could move on this summer.”
