Manchester City leading race to sign Yves Bissouma
Manchester City have reportedly jumped ahead of Arsenal in the race to sign Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma.
Bissouma has been with the Seagulls for the past three years, where he has developed into one of the Premier League's best defensive midfielders.
He has been tipped to leave the club this summer, and it was recently claimed that the Gunners were favourites to sign him.
However, according to The Star, the Cityzens have now joined the pursuit, and have been tipped to land Bissouma.
The Cityzens are expecting the departure of Fernandinho when his contract expires at the end of the campaign.
They were initially linked with West Ham United's Declan Rice, but are reluctant to enter a bidding war with Chelsea.
While Rice could cost £90m in this summer's transfer window, Bissouma is reportedly available for just £30m
Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool have also been credited with an interest in the midfielder, who represents Mali at the international level.
