Tottenham begin talks to sign £30m Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma

Tottenham close in on signing £30m Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma with talks underway as Antonio Conte plans a midfield upgrade

Tottenham are in talks with Brighton over a move for midfielder Yves Bissouma.

Spurs are keen to make midfielder Bissouma their third summer addition following the arrivals of free transfer duo Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster.

Bissouma has just one year left on his contract at the Amex and Brighton want a fee of around £30m to sanction his sale.

Spurs are thought to value Bissouma slightly lower with the two sides expected to find a compromise.

The news comes after the 25-year-old left fans of Spurs’ north London rivals dreaming of a swoop for him.

Bissouma shared a post on his Instagram story of a fan suggesting he should quit Brighton for Arsenal and should replace Thomas Partey in their midfield.

Villa meanwhile failed with a bid for the Brighton midfielder last January but retain an interest, with Steven Gerrard keen to add a midfield enforcer this summer.
