Man Utd's three-man back-up shortlist if Declan Rice transfer fails to materialise

Yves Bissouma

The Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder recently said he believes he is the best midfielder in the Premier League.

However, it is currently hard to argue with his boldness, considering he has been a driving force in the Seagull’s incredible start to the season.

Many had tipped Graham Potter’s side to be in and amongst the relegation dog-fight, but with victories against Burnley, Watford, Brentford, and most recently Leicester City, they find themselves in fourth place.

Bissouma has arguably been their most important player, providing the Brighton defence with the perfect midfield protection, as well as driving forward and contributing creatively as well.

At 25-years-old he not only has many years ahead of him, he will also be at his peak within the next few seasons.

He will also be entering the final year of his contract next season, and if he does not put pen to paper on a new deal before then, next year will be Brighton’s final opportunity to cash in on his services.
