Daily Express reporter Ryan Taylor has claimed Tottenham Hotspur would “definitely” consider making a move for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma this summer.
Bissouma was reportedly on Tottenham’s radar in January, with Spurs reportedly battling Man Utd and Aston Villa for the midfielder’s signature in the final days of the window (The daily mail).
The midfielder ended up staying at the Amex Stadium but his future is still up in the air with his current deal only having 12 months left to run (Transfermarkt).
The temperature reported last month that Spurs and Aston Villa could battle to sign Bissouma this summer.
world of london subsequently suggested the North London club could turn their attention to the Mail international if they fail in their bid to bring Christian Eriksen back to the club.
Bissouma appeared to make a ‘pick me up’ appeal to Arsenal this week, reposting an Instagram clip from a Gunners fan, who had called on Mikel Arteta to make the Brighton man and Youri Tielemans his priority signings this summer ( via Football.London).
Taylor has now insisted that although Spurs have shown no “concrete” interest in the 25-year-old, the midfielder could be a relatively cheap option for Antonio Conte’s men.
The journalist told GiveMeSport about Bissouma: “If he’s a player Conte likes, he’ll definitely help save some of the finances for other signings given he’s probably not going to cost more than 30 to 35 million pounds.
“Certainly a Spurs will look, and given they want to play in the Champions League that’s probably a realistic avenue. But at the moment there’s no concrete evidence to suggest that will happen.
Boosts web opinion
While Bissouma might well be one of the names on Tottenham’s wishlist, he certainly doesn’t appear to be high on the list. It looks like a central midfielder isn’t as much of a priority for Conte this summer as a left centre-back or a right-back.
