Yves Bissouma, the Brighton midfielder, has been linked with a move away from the club this summer, and Leicester City seem to be keeping an eye on him.

The Foxes are reportedly considering a bid for the Mali international if Wilfred Ndidi departs the club this summer, according to GFFN.

According to the report, Brighton value the midfielder at €35 million, and he is also being pursued by other Premier League clubs.

Bissouma has been linked with Liverpool and Arsenal in recent months, and he would be an excellent addition to any Premier League club. In principle, the 24-year-old has had a strong season with the Seagulls and appears to be a capable successor.

Boubakary Soumare has agreed to join Leicester for €25 million this summer, although he is not considered as a replacement for Ndidi.

Ndidi has been a standout player for Leicester in recent seasons, and it wouldn’t be surprise if he was signed by a top team this summer. The Foxes will be aiming to keep hold of the Nigerian in the best case scenario. He is a crucial player for Brendan Rodgers and is well-established at the club.

Meanwhile, RB Leipzig midfielder Christopher Nkunku appears to be a target for the Premier League side.

The former PSG player is reportedly keen on sticking at the German club that can provide him with Champions League action.
