Arsenal star Eddie Nketiah wanted by Brighton in transfer that could see Yves Bissouma head to Emirates in exchange

ARSENAL star Eddie Nketiah is reportedly wanted by Brighton.

And that could spark a swap deal involving highly-rated Gunners target Yves Bissouma, 24.


Latest Brighton claims Graham Potter is targeting a move for Nketiah, 21, in order to prevent another season battling relegation.

The likes of Danny Welbeck and Neil Maupay failed to hit the target regularly, forcing Brighton to scrap for their top-flight status for the entire campaign.

Nketiah is facing a bleak future at the Emirates under Mikel Arteta, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette set to stay put.

Fellow youngster Folarin Balogun has also signed a new deal under the premise of more first-team football.

And Nketiah looks set to move on, with Brighton now said to be an option.

Should Arsenal enter talks with the Seagulls, they could try and sign midfielder Bissouma in a swap deal.

The Mali international has been Brighton’s saving grace this season.

And he is also said to be a target for Liverpool following Gini Wijnaldum’s exit.

Should the Reds win the race for Bissouma, it’s claimed Arsenal are also looking at Sander Berge following Sheffield United’s relegation.

Arteta’s rebuild doesn’t end in midfield, with Bayer Leverkusen centre-back Edmond Tapsoba also on his wishlist.

And SunSport understands tabs are being kept on Celtic forward Odsonne Edouard, with FA Cup winners Leicester keen too.
