With the January transfer window edging closer and closer, it is likely that we will see the club make some sort of impact in the market given the current injury situation the Reds are facing.
Despite the central defensive rumours doing the mills, with the most recent link being a loan move for Real Madrid defender Eder Militao – the recent transfer link has come in the form of Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma, who has also been linked with a move to Arsenal ahead of the winter window.
Bissouma joined the Seagulls back in 2018 from French outfit Lille and has been a great performer for Graham Potter’s side this season, having impressed after the first few months of the campaign, currently rated at £11 million.
The 24-year-old midfielder has been a rock in the middle of the park for Potter, averaging 3.2 tackles and 1.9 clearances from 9 league appearances this season – highlighting his defensive capabilities in midfield as well as his pressing ability, something that will no doubt be a reason for Jurgen Klopp’s interest in the Malian.
With Reds midfielder Gini Wijnaldum out of contract at the end of the season and still no sign of an agreement between player and club, it is likely we will see the Dutchman move on at the end of the campaign with a replacement likely to come in to replace him – and it appears that replacement could be Bissouma.
Should Liverpool keep or sell Wijnaldum?
I think Liverpool would be silly to let Wijnaldum go given the work and role he has had at the club since joining from Newcastle in 2016 – the man has helped us to the Premier League and Champions League titles during his time and has been a constant presence in Klopp’s midfield – but if he were to leave then I think Bissouma would be a great replacement for him.
What do you think Liverpool fans, would Yves Bissouma be a good signing? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section down below…
