Brighton & Hove Albion set asking price for Manchester United target

Brighton have placed a price tag on the head of their star midfielder.

Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma has been heavily linked with a move away since the summer.

The 25-year-old has impressed on the south coast since joining the club for £15 million in 2018.

His form has led to a number of clubs expressing interest and now Brighton have reportedly set an asking price of £50 million for his services, according to The Athletic.

The Seagulls are eager to keep Bissouma but it is thought that a bid of around £50 million would be enough to convince them to sell this month.

The Mali international has 18 months left on his contract and it is unclear whether he would commit to a new deal at Brighton.

The club will be keen to earn a hefty fee if they are to part ways with Bissouma rather than risking him going for free next year.

Despite growing interest in Bissouma, Brighton boss Graham Potter claimed that they are yet to receive an offer for him.

The former Lille star is currently away on international duty at AFCON and won’t return to Premier League action until February.

Who is interested in Bissouma?

A number of Premier League sides are interested in signing Bissouma - with Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool all targeting him.

A midfielder is high on the Red Devils’ list of priorities during the transfer window and could see their interest in Bissouma increase if Paul Pogba is to leave Old Trafford.

Bissouma has previously admitted that he wants to play Champions League football and wants ‘to be champions’ - so a move away from Brighton seems likely.
