Aston Villa still chasing Yves Bissouma’s signature

Aston Villa are still hoping to sign Brighton midfielder Yves Bisoma despite the arrest of Boubacar Camara this week.

Villa confirmed that they secured Camara from Marseille on Monday and although the likes of Douglas Luiz and John McGinn are already in the squad, 90 Minutes says coach Steven Gerrard is still hoping to cement the position further.

Villa were linked with Bisoma in January but the deal fell through and it appears they haven’t given up on the Mali international who has been a cog in Brighton’s midfield and has been linked with a string of clubs in recent months.

Reports claim talks are already underway over a deal for Bisuma, who told Brighton earlier this year that he was ready to move from the club in the summer window and that a £30m deal could be enough to secure a win. player.

Aside from Villa, their north London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are said to be keeping an eye on the player and have been in contact with the player’s camp since the turn of the year.
