'Worst window ever': Some Arsenal fans gutted over report from Liverpool
Liverpool have enquired about reported Arsenal target Yves Bissouma, according to The Express.
The Gunners have been linked with the Brighton ace for most of the year but there hasn’t been much progress on that front.
Football.london claimed in January that Arsenal had made contact with the Brighton star’s representatives.
The same outlet reported in June that the 24-year-old had instructed his agent to try and get him to the Emirates.
But now, it looks as though Liverpool have got the ball rolling with regards to the talented midfielder.
Jurgen Klopp has apparently had Bissouma on his radar for quite some time as well.
And with just a few days left of the transfer window, The Express claims Liverpool have made an official enquiry.
The Reds were left reeling from the loss of Georginio Wijnaldum to a free transfer and subsequent move to PSG.
Therefore, they could do with bolstering their midfield ranks, and the £40million Seagulls ace would certainly be a great shout.
This latest report has left some Arsenal fans gutted, however:
@arsenal you snooze you lose: Liverpool have made an opening move for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma.— afcguvnor (@AFCGuvnor) August 27, 2021

Arsenal need to step it up. Bissouma is a class act.— Drogo (@khaldro53747048) August 27, 2021
Looks like Liverpool are going in for Bissouma smh man, they already got Fabinho, Thiago who play that position and now they want Bissouma.— jontysports (@JontySports) August 27, 2021
…Meanwhile Arsenal Football Club are happy with Xhaka & Elneny. We are a million miles behind what is clearly now the 'big 4'.
Would be disappointed to see Liverpool get Bissouma. Would have loved him at the Arsenal.— N1 gooner (@clockend1977) August 27, 2021
Liverpool having four players who might be at AFCON isn’t stopping them from allegedly trying to sign Bissouma but apparently this is a stumbling block for Arsenal— Flappyhandski (@Faaabianskiii) August 27, 2021
Bissouma looked a cut above for the Seagulls last season, showing quality and consistency throughout.
He made 39 appearances in all competitions, of which 36 came in the Premier League.
Bissouma’s Whoscored ratings for 2020-21 are impressive – 7.01 from 31 appearances in CM and 6.99 from four at DMC.
One of the Malian’s displays, in the 0-0 draw with Everton in April, prompted Gary Lineker to call him “exceptional“.
