      Yves Bissouma (Brighton)
      Dec 21, 2020 11:43:15 am


      Liverpool will consider making a January bid for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma in order to steal march on the Mali international’s other suitors.

      The Premier League champions remain hopeful that Georginio Wijnaldum, a mainstay of their midfield in recent seasons, will sign a new contract and commit the remaining peak years of his career to the club.

      But with just over six months left to run on his current deal and Barcelona still interested in signing him, Liverpool are steeling themselves for the departure of the Netherlands international and are drawing up a list of potential replacements.

      Bissouma joined Brighton for just £15million from Lille two-and-a-half years ago and the Seagulls believes he has at least doubled in value since then.

      The combative midfielder possess similar qualities to Wijnaldum but would add an extra level of aggression to the Liverpool engine room and would not necessarily block the path of youngster Curtis Jones who has cemented a regular first team spot this season.

      According to ESPN, however, Manchester United as well as Monaco and two unnamed Spanish clubs, are also carefully monitoring Bissouma’s situation and with that in mind Liverpool could make their move when the transfer window reopens next month.

      Brighton are currently in the midst of a relegation battle and would likely be reluctant sellers given they are currently in 16th position and just two points out of the drop zone.

      I would only buy him if Wijnaldum is certain off in the Summer.

      We have Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Keita, AOC, Milner and Jones. Minamino and Firmino can play there as well.

      I would focus on one good defender. However, if Klopp wants him, alright :)

      Load of bullshit, article states "But with just over six months left to run on his current deal", but he's contracted with Brighton until June 2023.

      Factually incorrect fake news article.

      Anyway I would much prefer to keep Gini for another few years.

      They are talking about Gini having just over 6 months left on his deal.

      But the article is still rubbish if it’s from ESPN

      Ah yes, misread that bit, Brighton apparently want £35 million for Bissouma which I don't believe he's worth.

      Just get that Gini contract done and we're sorted in midfield for the next 3/4 years.

      Don't know much about this guy, but does look like Gini will be leaving in the summer.

      He's good and could become very good.

      I'm not sure we even *need* a CM though.

      If we get CBs in, we'd still midfield options of Fabinho/Hendo/Thiago/Jones/Keita/AOC/Shaq.

      We'll miss Gini though, Keita is injury prone, AOC's form is erratic. Some might leave in summer.

      If both Gini and Keita leave, probably will need to look for that kinda player though.

      I'd be surprised if we don't try to offload Naby in the Summer unless he can prove from now until June he can string 3 games together without injury which is a tall order.

      We'll be in the market for at least one top CM.

      Brighton signed a young defensive midfielder from Ecuador, so could be the replacement fir this lad in the summer?

      I'd say so mate I think Bissouma is quality and £30 million should seal it for us he'll be a very good replacement for Gini.

      Agree about Naby, but it will be hard to offload him because he's on a big contract and nobody will want to pay it. We may need to loan him out and still pay some of his wages.  :(

      Thought he looked good yesterday on MOTD highlights. Well worth looking at in the summer
