Arsenal will reportedly face competition from Leicester City in the race to sign Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma.

Bissouma has been with the Seagulls since 2018, but there is wide speculation that he could join a bigger club this summer.

Graham Potter's side are currently languishing at the tailend of the table, but Bissouma has been hugely impressive with his displays.

According to The Mirror, the Gunners have already made contact with Bissouma's entourage, and they are looking to partner him with Thomas Partey.

Bissouma is said to be tempted, given he was a boyhood fan of the club, but the Foxes are hoping to lure him with Champions League football.

Brendan Rodgers sees the Malian as a potential long-term partner for Wilfred Ndidi, as the Foxes aim to make more progress in the league.

Bissouma has made more tackles (74) than any other Premier League midfielder this term. He is reportedly valued at around £30m.
