Bissouma has been outstanding for the Seagulls but is in the last year of his contract and is ready to move on with both Arsenal and Spurs keen.

  1. Not sure what more convincing Moyes needs, top player, statement signing. On a completely different level to McGinn or Phillops. Listen to your captain Moyes.

  2. Bissouma is the perfect player, we should be going all out to attract. Unfortunately I feel Moyes aspirations are far lower than many of us fans. We are hoping that he will make the next step up in top signings but his still looking at past their best players like Oxlade-Chamberlain. I hope I’m wrong but we waste a lot of time talking about these higher level young players only for other more aspirational teams to sign.
