Yves Bissouma addresses Brighton future amid Liverpool transfer talk

Bissouma is linked with a move to Liverpool, as well as Arsenal

Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma has dismissed speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool.

The Reds have been frequently linked with the Mali international over the past few months, as have fellow Premier League club Arsenal.

Bissouma has been one of Brighton’s star players over the past couple of years, which has resulted in him being linked with a move away from the Amex Stadium.

The 24-year-old has been tipped to replace Gini Wijnaldum, who looks likely to leave as a free agent this summer, but Bissouma is having none of the speculation.

Despite the apparent interest, Bissouma insists that he’s focused on being a Brighton player and avoiding relegation from the Premier League.

"I don’t have much to say about that because I’m at Brighton for the moment,” Bissouma told The Argus.

“I consider myself a Brighton player, so the most important thing right now, as I said, is to stay up.

"We'll try and stay up, and God willing, we’ll see how things go next season."

As well as Bissouma, Borussia Monchengladbach’s Florian Neuhaus, Sheffield United’s Sander Berge and Lyon’s Houssem Aouar have also been tentatively linked as potential Wijnaldum replacements.
