Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma is “excited” by the prospect of a move to Manchester City this summer, according to Twitter account FR Blue Moon.
The source, which generally focuses on providing news on the Citizens in French, has seemingly done some reporting of its own, suggesting Bissouma may be a target for the Premier League champions, although they do warn that Arsenal are also interested in the player:
🚨 Yves Bissouma pourrait rejoindre Manchester City. L’international 🇲🇱 est enthousiaste à l’idée de jouer pour le club mais Arsenal lui fait de l’œil aussi. Le processus pour son transfert pourrait très vite s’accélérer, Brighton ayant déjà signé son remplaçant. pic.twitter.com/zVYjTE6uZ4

We shall see if there is any substance to this story. There were some legitimate reports back in May that suggested City were keeping tabs on Bissouma, but things have been quiet on that front since then.
The Malian international has also been on Liverpool’s radar, and there is a feeling that he will be sold for the right price this summer, especially with Brighton having signed Enock Mwepu from Red Bull Salzburg, who is seen by many as a potential replacement.
