Aston Villa, Arsenal and Liverpool may just have to pay ‘£50 million’ if they want to sign Yves Bissouma from Brighton, according to a report.

The Athletic claim that Brighton are in a ‘delicate position’ regarding their much-wanted and hard-hitting midfielder.

Bissouma is in the final 18 months of his contract at the Amex Stadium, with several Premier League clubs, including the likes of Aston Villa, Arsenal and Liverpool keen on his talents. 

It is reported that an offer of the magnitude of £50 million, given Bissouma’s contract situation, would demand ‘serious consideration’ from those on the south coast.

In this inflated transfer market and this money-crazy footballing world, a fee of £50 million, for one of Liverpool, Arsenal, Villa, or any other side, is something they shouldn’t think twice about.

Bissouma could more than claim that his name should be up in lights alongside some of the best defensive-minded midfielders in the Premier League today.

The best of the best in England’s top-flight are the likes of Declan Rice, Fabinho and Rodri. 

Someone like Rodri cost those from Manchester City £63 million (BBC Sport), so that goes to show that Bissouma’s possible price is one worth going for given how the Spanish midfielder has performed.

But the problem for someone like Villa and Arsenal is that they aren’t in Europe, although that could be different for the Gunners at the end of the season because they are currently fourth in the Premier League table.

Either way, some will feel, if the quick-thinking midfielder should move, then it should be to a ready-made side, whether that’s in January or in the summer.

But, as Brendan Rodgers pointed out in September, Bissouma is a ‘top player’ and someone who is ‘tactically strong’, as quoted by the Argus.

Even for someone as defensively strong and relentless as Liverpool, Bissouma would improve the Merseyside club.

If he were to move to the Emirates, then it would please the supporters and prove that the club is moving forward under Mikel Arteta.

Whilst Aston Villa would send out a serious statement of intent if they manage to secure the Brighton man’s talents, alongside the recently-recruited, Philippe Coutinho.
