Whereas last term he started 15 and came off the bench seven times.

He is a combative midfielder, adept at winning the ball back and bringing teammates into the play.

Most commonly used as a centre midfielder he has also been seen as a defensive midfielder as well as on either wing and at right back.

Liverpool linked with Yves Bissouma

January promises to be an interesting transfer window for Kopites.

The Reds are short of numbers due to injuries throughout the squad.

TalkSPORT has claimed that Liverpool could move for Yves Bissouma in January.

The outlet believes that the Reds and Arsenal are weighing up a move for the Malian.

Whilst no price tag is quoted, his contract runs out in 2023 which means Brighton won’t be bullied into a cheap sale.

The report certainly makes sense given the player’s versatility, a trait which Jürgen Klopp values highly.
