, Arsenal in Bissouma transfer boost as Aston Villa end pursuit of Brighton midfielder after he teases Gunners move

ARSENAL fans are hoping to seal a transfer for Yves Bissouma this summer after the midfielder hinted at a move.

The Brighton star, 25, reposted two comments from an Arsenal supporter who revealed their wish to sign Bissouma.

Brighton have pulled out of the race for Yves Bissouma

The Gunners have been linked with a move for the Mali international since last summer and it appears Bissouma is keen to join.

And now, just a day after the midfielder’s cryptic posts, The Athletic are reporting Aston Villa have ended their pursuit of the Seagulls’ ace.

Villa were reportedly set to battle Arsenal for Bissouma this summer so their withdrawal from the transfer race is a big boost for the Gunners.

It means technical director Edu has a better chance of agreeing a fee with Brighton although there is still the interest from Monaco to contend with.

Bissouma is believed to be valued at around £50million by Brighton – the same fee that took Ben White from the south coast to the Emirates last summer.

And fortunately for Mikel Arteta it appears Bissouma is aiming to follow in the England star’s footsteps.

The ex-Lille ace re-posted two messages from an Arsenal fan on Tuesday.

The first comment read: “For me, I think he and Tielemans should be our priority at midfield, we must get [Bissouma] at all cost [Arsenal].”

The supporter followed that up by adding: “I’ve been following up on Bissouma and I think he’s the one to replace Partey long-term, he’s just 25.”

Bissouma’s contract expires in 2023 too which means Brighton could be open to selling as this is their final chance to cash in.
