An ambitious Liverpool goal looking for a high-end move may not be suitable for Liverpool. Instead, a proven Leicester artist would be a better bet, according to an expert.
Brighton Yves bissouma clearly does not lack confidence. The combative midfielder, 25, recently declared himself the best midfielder in the Premier League.
He followed this by revealing his desire to test himself in the Champions League. And while the Seagulls have made a superb start to the campaign, common sense would dictate that this goal is more likely to be achieved if he moves on to a club like Liverpool or Man Utd.
Indeed, Bissouma has been linked to both clubs after growing stronger and stronger under Graham Potter.
The Express has claimed Brighton will order around £ 50million for the Mali international. Only time will tell if a charge of this size would be justified.
But according to former goalkeeper Paul Robinson, Liverpool should be wary of filling their Georginio Wijnaldum-shaped void for the Seagulls star. Instead of Leicester City Yuri Tielemans would be a “better option”.
Tielemans could also be on the move next summer. Trusted transfer guru Fabrizio Romano said Tielemans’ future will be one to watch next summer. The Belgian’s contract expires in 2023 and a sale next summer could be considered if he refuses to sign new terms.
“I think Tielemans would be a better option for Liverpool than Bissouma”, Robinson told Football Insider. “Does Bissouma do the trick for Klopp?” I am not so sure.
“They don’t have a lot of money to spend, we saw that in the transfer window that just ended. Wijnaldum played such a big role for them last season, so he will naturally be missed.
“They’re light at it now, so I expect them to call on another body in that position, whether it’s January or next summer. It will be interesting to see if Liveprool makes a move in January.

Three exciting strikers on Liverpool’s radar
During this time, Jurgen Klopp is desperate to strengthen Liverpool’s attacking options and is currently considering three possible signings, according to a report.
Through the mirror, two of those options come from La Liga in the form of Ousmane Dembele and Marco Asensio. Indeed, Liverpool’s declared interest in Asensio has resulted in Carlo Ancelotti comments on Real Madrid star this week.
By the time January arrives, there will only be 18 months left on his contract. And the feeling is that there will be an opportunity for Liverpool to pounce.
The third name completing the roster for Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman. His deal also expires in the summer of 2023 and reports claim the Bundesliga giants may be looking to cash in.
Coman is something of a lucky charm, having won the League title in the 10 seasons he has enjoyed as a professional. These incredible races include two at PSG, two with Juventus and the last six with Bayern.
