Arsenal face Liverpool competition for Bissouma

Arsenal are likely to face competition from Liverpool in the race to sign Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma.

The Gunners are expected to reinforce their midfield this summer, with multiple players heading for the exit door.

Dani Ceballos will return to Real Madrid after another loan stint, and the club have no plans of re-signing him.

Meanwhile, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi are expected to be sold for the right price in the coming weeks.

Bissouma has been identified as a transfer target for the Gunners, but Fabrizio Romano claims that the Reds are also interested.

The 24-year-old could be available for £40 million, and the Gunners could lower the fee by offering Eddie Nketiah as a makeweight.

The Seagulls are interested in signing a new marksman, and have their sights on landing Nketiah from the north Londoners.

Meanwhile, Romano has emphasised that Bissouma is not the leading target for the Gunners, and they are looking at many options.
