The Seagulls midfielder, 24, has been in impressive form this season – and most-recently starred in the 1-1 draw with the reigning champions.

Now, it’s claimed both Mikel Arteta and Jurgen Klopp want to add Bissouma to their squads in the winter window.

Arsenal are desperately lacking a creative spark, managing just ten goals in ten Premier League games this season.

The Gunners had targeted Houssem Aouar as well as Thomas Partey in the summer, but were priced out of a move.

Arteta is also believed to be keen on RB Salzburg star Dominik Szoboszlai.

Liverpool, meanwhile, are looking for a long-term replacement for Dutch star Georginio Wijnaldum.

The former Newcastle ace is out of contract in the summer and is expected to leave on a free.

Klopp could swoop for Bissouma in January in a bid to bolster his midfield ranks, with anchor man Fabinho regularly being deployed in defence due to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez’s long-term injuries.

Alex Crook, talkSPORT‘s transfer guru, revealed the two Premier League giants’ interest in Mali international Bissouma.


Crook told the Jim White Show: “Bissouma is a player Arteta is a big fan of.

“I know Arsenal are by no means the only big six club keeping tabs on him.

“Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is also monitoring his situation…

“He is looking for a replacement for the out of contract Gini Wijnaldum.

“Bissouma himself is contracted until 2023 so next summer would usually be the time when they would start negotiating a potential new deal.”

Crook continued by saying Arteta is bracing himself for a busy January and is still interested in ex-Tottenham ace Christian Eriksen.

The Danish star has endured a horror spell at Inter Milan since moving just a year ago.

And Crook revealed: “We know it has’t worked out particularly well for Eriksen since he joined Inter Milan.

“He only has three league starts this season.

“I know Arteta is hoping for a busy January and Eriksen, I understand, is on his list of potential targets.

“Arsenal are crying out for some creativity after making their worst ever start to a Premier League season.

“A stumbling block could be about how Eriksen himself could feel about crossing that north London divide.”
