Tottenham are hopeful of completing a deal for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma before Tuesday’s transfer deadline, according to reports. The summer window slams shut in three days, but Nuno Espirito Santo still wants to bolster his squad further.
On Friday, Tottenham offloaded midfield outcast Moussa Sissoko to Watford, which has freed up space in Nuno’s plans.
Spurs have enjoyed a productive window, welcoming four new players to the club and keeping Harry Kane following months of links to Manchester City.
Pierluigi Gollini and Cristian Romero have arrived from Atalanta, while Sevilla’s Bryan Gil was included in a swap deal for Erik Lamela.
Metz starlet Pape Sarr is Nuno’s latest addition, but the Portuguese head coach doesn’t look to be done with midfield recruitment.

According to the Sunday Mirror, Nuno is a big admirer of Bissouma and hopes Spurs can strike a deal with Brighton before Tuesday night.
The Seagulls value Bissouma at £40million after rising to stardom since his 2018 arrival from Lille.
He has also been linked with Arsenal and Liverpool this summer, but Brighton have retained him so far.
The 24-year-old could still be on the move, though, if Spurs submit a suitable offer before the transfer window slams shut.
The report has also suggested Spurs could move for a new striker in the little time that’s left to do business, with Kane needing backup up front.

Ahead of Brighton’s Carabao Cup win against Cardiff City in midweek, Potter welcomed speculation over Bissouma’s future.
He praised the Mali international’s performance in last Saturday’s 2-0 win over Watford but admitted he can’t control his future.
He said: “It feels like [Bissouma questions] have been asked for the last few months, so we’re used to it.
“But it’s good. If you’re getting that talk, then he’s doing something well; we’re doing something well.
“He’s enjoying his football, he showed his qualities at the weekend – I thought he was fantastic.
“You can’t control what people say from the outside, it’s talk, but he’s happy with us and we will keep working with him.”
“You can’t control [his future], you can’t control what other people do, all you can do is carry on working with the players trying to improve and help them and if there’s talk like that, then it’s positive.”
