Tottenham AGREE £25m fee for Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma with advanced talks ongoing as Antonio Conte plans midfield upgrade

  • Spurs are keen to make midfielder Yves Bissouma their third summer addition 
  • The 25-year-old has just one year left on his contract at the Amex Stadium
  • The Mali international made 26 league appearances for Brighton last season
  • Bissouma is expected to undergo a Spurs medical later in the week 

Tottenham have agreed a £25million fee with Brighton for midfielder Yves Bissouma.

Spurs are keen to make midfielder Bissouma their third summer addition following the arrivals of free transfer duo Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster. 

Bissouma has just one year left on his contract at the Amex and is now expected to undergo a medical later this week.

Agreeing personal terms with Bissouma is not expected to be a problem. 

Mali midfielder Bissouma joined Brighton for around £13m from Lille in 2018 and has caught the eye of a number of Premier League clubs with his all-action displays. 

Should he complete the move, he will give Antonio Conte another high quality midfield option. Rodrigo Bentancur arrived in January and predominantly partnered Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for the remainder of the season as Spurs qualified for the Champions League.

Conte is also a big fan of Oliver Skipp, whose progress last season was hampered by injury. 

Conte’s midfield strengthening is set to result in academy product Harry Winks being squeezed out though he is a man in demand with interest from the likes of Everton and Crystal Palace. 

Conte is also targeting reinforcements in defence, further forward in midfield and attack.
