A former Arsenal legend has dropped his ten cents on the Arsenal conundrum. Ray parlour, a member of the Arsenal invincibles, has urged Arsenal to move for Brighton’s Yves Bissouma. Parlour is worried about Arsenal and wants the side to improve.
Arsenal have fallen way off the wagon and are trying to work their way back to the top. It was a quiet summer for most teams but not for the Gunners. After finishing 8th for the second season in a row, the club is bent on returning the team to its glory days.
Though early season results have not been to the team’s taste, there have been signs that they are on the right track. Arsenal chief Edu, a former Arsenal legend, has been busy trying to get the team working well.
Yves Bissouma is a hot cake in the Premiership, with several clubs eyeing the player. The Malian midfielder has posted impressive performances this season that has not gone unnoticed.
With Arsenal wallowing in midfield misery, Ray Parlour has asked his former side to make a move for the Brighton & Hove player.
According to Parlour, the player has got everything they need. Arsenal made major signings in the summer, with six new faces joining the Gunners ranks. Ben White, Martin Ødegaard are among the most notable signings the North London club made. Others include Takehiro Tomiyasu, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Nuno Tavares, who arrived to conclude their summer business.
With Arsenal loaded in midfield, Parlour still thinks that Bissouma was the final piece of the puzzle.
According to him, the player will bring a missing value to this young Gunners squad.
Arsenal has been linked to the 25-year-old midfielder and may make a move for the player. Speaking on talkSPORT, Parlour was full of praise for the Malian, who he believes is destined for the top.
Bissouma arrived in the Premier League in 2018. He joined Brighton & Hove Albion from French outfit Lille. He signed a five-year contract and has been a constant feature in the side, with 100 appearances for the team in all competitions.
Parlour was gushing at the thought of the player appearing in the colours of the Gunners. He described the player as efficient and believes he has everything the Gunners need.
Bissouma is not averse to leaving Brighton. In a recent interview, he bemoaned his inability to secure a move away from Brighton.
He said his failure to move meant it wasn’t his time to move. He, however, was equivocal in his choice of destination. The Malian midfielder would prefer to join a club competing in the Champions League.
That revelation was a kick in the teeth for Arsenal, who have failed to make the Champions League in recent seasons.
