A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, The Mirror mentioned that Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing a deadline day move for Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma. It is understood that Spurs are hoping to acquire the services of the Mali international before the transfer deadline on Monday night.

Bissouma’s Impressive Run Of Form In English Football

Bissouma is having an incredible campaign at the American Express Community Stadium after producing a handful of solid performances at the centre of Graham Potter’s midfield. The 25-year-old has made 15 appearances for the Seagulls this season, picking up one assist in the process in multiple competitions.

The former Lille talent deserves a pat on the back for averaging 3.6 tackles, 1.9 interceptions, 1.9 clearances, 0.9 shots and 1.7 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Premier League. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution as he has completed 88.8% of his attempted passes in the English first division (stats via whoscored).

Is Bissouma A Good Option For Tottenham Hotspur?

Bissouma is a tough-tackling midfielder who can time his challenges to perfection to secure the ball back at the centre of the park. He is often quick to react to the danger and doesn’t shy away from clearing his lines when the opposition are on the offensive.

The 18-time Mali international can strike the ball with power and precision from long range. He can retain possession with ease for his team in midfield and can even make some driving runs with the ball towards the opponent’s penalty box.

A complete midfielder of Bissouma’s skillset will be an exciting acquisition for Spurs this month. He ticks all the right boxes in terms of what Antonio Conte demands from his midfielders. At 25, the Mali sensation has his best years ahead of him and is well-equipped to make an immediate impact at North London.

We can expect Bissouma to add plenty of bite and steel to Tottenham‘s midfield that might help them in the race to secure a top-four spot in the Premier League this season. Furthermore, the Brighton star could go on to form a dominant midfield partnership with Pierre-Emile Højbjerg at the North London club in the coming seasons.
