Potter officially makes Bissouma transfer admission ahead of possible Chelsea move
Brighton boss Graham Potter has admitted that it will be ‘very difficult’ to maintain Arsenal target Yves Bissouma.
Over the last few seasons Bissouma has developed into one of the most sought after midfielders in the Premier League with his performances earning rave reviews on a weekly basis
And it has been no secret in the media that Chelsea are eyeing up a potential deal for Bissouma in the summer after failing to get a deal done in the January window, as Potter did not want to let his best player leave during the season
The South Coast side has been reluctant to sell Bissouma, but Potter has opened up and admitted that it will be very difficult to keep him away from the big clubs when they come calling
Bissouma has also been linked with a move to Manchester United as well as Liverpool, Potter said: “You also have to understand the club and him face a point where you’ve got a decision to make. If there’s Champions League interest, as an example.
“As a club, how do you compete with that? How do you compete financially and stop the player taking that opportunity up? It’s very difficult”
Bissouma is ready for that next stage of his career, to make that step up at a club like Chelsea, and honestly for that £50 million, he would be a great signing
He has all the qualities to shine at the club, and the fact that he is already Premier League proven would be massive
It will all come down to whether or not we are prepared to pay £50 million to sign a player that still has alot of prove
