Aston Villa has been linked with a move for Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma for quite a while and they could once again reignite their interest in the Mali international this summer.
The 25-year-old joined the Premier League club back in 2018 from the French side LOSC Lille for a fee of around £15 million. Since joining the AMEX Stadium, the midfielder has established himself as an integral part of Graham Potter’s system.
Meanwhile, following a productive spell in the English top-flight, the Malian has caught the attention of other Premier League clubs. Arsenal, Manchester United, and Liverpool were linked with a move for the 25-year-old earlier. And Aston Villa is also ready to battle out against England’s biggest clubs in search of the highly-rated midfielder’s signature.
The Villans are one of the busiest clubs in the Premier League in the transfer market since their promotion. And they are looking to remain busy once again in the upcoming summer transfer window.
Will Bissouma be a good fit for Aston Villa?
Yves Bissouma could be a very good signing for Aston Villa this summer. The Villans will be looking to fight for the European places next term after appointing Steven Gerrard as the new manager midway through this season. And the Liverpool legend will be eyeing strengthening his squad in the summer.
Meanwhile, the 25-year-old has displayed excellent performance during his time on the south coast and the Midlanders will be hoping that the Malian can replicate the same performance if he were to join Villa Park.
However, Aston Villa has good players in their midfield. Given Douglas Luiz, John McGinn, and young Jacob Ramsey are already in the squad. So, the Villans need wingers to strengthen their squad for next season.
They signed Leon Bailey last summer but he has struggled with his injury problems since joining the club. On the other hand, Bertrand Traore is not good enough to match the club’s ambitions. So, signing new wide players is way more important for Steven Gerrard’s side than investing in midfield.
