West Ham United target Yves Bissouma has just added the Hammers sign to his Instagram account.
He has also deleted all old photos of him in a Brighton strip. You can see the Instagram bio by clicking HERE…
West Ham United are allegedly in the race to sign the Brighton midfielder in the summer transfer window.
That’s according to a report from 90 Min who claim that the Hammers face competition from the likes of Aston Villa, Tottenham and Arsenal for the 25-year-old’s signature this summer.
Central midfield is definitely an area at the London Stadium where West Ham manager David Moyes will want to strengthen in the summer transfer window.
Mark Noble played his last game for the Hammers on Sunday whilst Alex Kral will almost certainly be sent back to Spartak Moscow after his disappointing loan spell in East London.
There are also doubts over the future of Tomas Soucek and whether Conor Coventry is actually good enough to be playing regular Premier League football.
And it seems as though Moyes is intent on really bolstering his engine room at the London Stadium before the start of next season…
West Ham eyeing Yves Bissouma swoop, Instagram post adds fuel to the fire
90 Min reckon that the 25-year-old Mali international is on the Hammers’ radar ahead of the opening of the summer transfer window.
We believe that the Brighton midfielder would be a truly exceptional addition to Moyes’s ranks at the London Stadium.
Bissouma has been one of the standout performers in the Premier League this season.
With his energy, incredible drive, tenacious tackling and impressive array of passing, Bissouma seems to have all of the ingredients needed to become one of the very best box-to-box midfielders in the game.
In 26 Premier League appearances for Brighton this season, he has averaged 2.9 tackles, 1.9 interceptions, 1.8 clearances and 1.3 dribbles per game. He has made 45.7 passes per match on average with a hugely impressive completion rate of 89.2% (Who Scored).
The thought of Bissouma lined up alongside Declan Rice in the middle of the park with Tomas Soucek operating further forward is a really tantalising one.
He was recently described as an ‘unreal’ player by Sussex World.
The Mali international is valued at around £35 million by Brighton according to Football.London. He is out of contract with the Seagulls in the summer of 2023 though.
So perhaps the Hammers might be able to pick him up for slightly less than that amount.
And if West Ham do manage to sign Yves Bissouma this summer, we will be in a very strong position to challenge for honours ahead of next season.
Who knows…the Instagram update for Bissouma may mean nothing. We’re holding out hope that Moyes could be set to make a huge statement in the transfer market though!
