Some Liverpool fans are up for Yves Bissouma in the transfer window. Reports link the Reds with the Brighton man.
Yves Bissouma caught the eye on Monday evening, with many hyping him up ahead of the transfer window. The midfielder thrived against Everton.
The game was a dull 0-0, in truth, but Bissouma’s all-around performance won him accolades. His statline was quite incredible, in fact.
Bissouma created two chances in the game and completed three dribbles. Impressively, he only attempted three, finishing with a 100% success rate.
Even better, that success rate translated into headers and tackles, too. He attempted one header, winning it, while he won a massive five tackles.
The latter tied for the most in the game, though Bissouma was the only one to win every tackle. No one dribbled past the 24-year-old.
The Mailian rounded out his defensive display with three clearances. All in all, this was hugely impressive from front to back.
That caught the attention of Reds on Twitter, who called for Liverpool to sign Bissouma this summer.
Fans on Bissouma
Well imo Fab, Thiago and Hendo would be the the 3 who start most games, this would be perfect for Bissouma to settle and hopefully have the Jota effect on the team and keeps our mids on their toes— Kiraan (@Thiago_vision) April 12, 2021
We need depth to compete with City and Chelsea next season and Bissouma adds that
Could it happen?
As many pointed out, there’s a very good reason Liverpool could move for Bissouma. Gini Wijnaldum will likely leave in the summer once his contract ends, creating a space in the squad.
And there’s some good news for fans, then – Goal believes Liverpool do have Bissouma on their shortlist.
Games like this will move him higher up that list, too. Right now, there can’t be too many options better than Bissouma.
