Yves Bissouma: Aston Villa target in no rush to leave Brighton in January as bigger clubs eye Mali midfielder | Football news

Yves Bissouma is in no rush to leave Brighton this month amidst Aston Villa interest, and manager Graham Potter is “sure” he will stay.

The Mali midfielder’s future will become clearer when he returns to the UK after the Africa Cup of Nations later this month, and he has been followed by clubs bigger than Premier League Villa and abroad.

Bissouma could therefore wait until the summer to see what other options arise, with Manchester United, Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham looking for players of his profile.

If Villa matches Brighton’s valuation this month, which could be above £ 40m and up to £ 50m, then Bissouma will likely consider playing for Steven Gerrard and his ambitious club.

But for now, Bissouma remains fully focused on the CAN, where he will play Mali until at least January 20.

Bissouma came off the bench in Wednesday’s extraordinary game against Tunisia, which saw the final moments played out after post-match talks and without a furious Tunisian side, after full time was interrupted by the referee before the end of 90 minutes. .
