Tottenham agree a deal to sign Yves Bissoumma for £25m

After agreeing to pay Brighton £25 million for midfielder Yves Bissouma, Tottenham is likely to sign him before Arsenal does.

Since moving to the south coast, the Mali international has become one of the most sought-after midfielders in the Premier League. Brighton has worked hard to get Bissouma to sign a new contract.

But toward the end of last season, he made it clear that he wanted to leave the club. Since Bissouma has only one year left on his contract, Brighton has decided to cash in.

Spurs tried to sign Bissouma in January, but Brighton was hoping at the time that they could get him to stay with them for another year.

Arsenal has tried to sign Bissouma twice, and last summer, Liverpool was also interested.

The Mali player was arrested last summer on suspicion of sexual assault, and he is still waiting for the results of an investigation that is still going on.

But the Times says Spurs have decided to go through with the deal, and they expect Bissouma to have a medical this week.

Personal terms haven’t been worked out with the midfielder yet, but that shouldn’t be a problem.

Bissouma would be the third player Spurs have brought in this summer, after Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster.
