90min report that Arsenal are looking to strengthen their interest in Yves Bissouma, and they’re currently the favourites to secure his signature ahead of the likes of Liverpool and Leicester City.

Bissouma is reportedly looking for a move away from his current club, as he enters the final two years of his contract.

Previous reports suggest there are at least five clubs from around Europe showing varying degrees of interest in Yves Bissouma this summer. But Bissouma is mad about Arsenal and ready to agree to join if the Gunners find a deal with Brighton.

At this stage, a potential deal is still in the early stages. There’s no agreement on personal terms, no official bid, and the 24-year-old could still look elsewhere if Arsenal don’t make one. But right now, he’s keen to join if he gets the chance.

Bissouma made 39 appearances for Brighton this season, winning plenty of praise from around the Premier League. The Athletic suggested ahead of the summer that any interested club would have to be prepared to pay over £40m to sign him.
