The Portuguese press brings some completely different stories about Yves Bissouma today, each one saying one something about the player’s future.
One of these articles comes from Jornal de Notícias. They say the midfielder’s transfer to Porto is getting quite complicated, mostly because of the competition there is for him.
The newspaper says that Tottenham, Everton and Schalke are all in for the midfielder, who currently has a market value of €8m.
These Premier League sides are pointed out as Porto’s biggest problem to land the player, obviously because the Dragons can’t afford joining an auction with them.
But there’s another take on the situation coming from newspaper A Bola. They claim that Bissouma is ‘on his way to Porto’, as the offer from the Dragons sounded more attractive than those from the Premier League.
But thing is that it’s not Tottenham and Everton who are named by A Bola. It’s actually Brighton and Fulham.
The report claims that the Seagulls and Cottagers offered the player a good salary, but playing in the Champions League for Porto is something that attracted him more.
Newspaper O Jogo agrees with A Bola, saying the move to Porto is pretty likely, and even interviewed one of Bissouma’s former coaches to comment on the player.
Time will tell who’s right or wrong, but considering that it’s two outlets against one for now, it’s looking like Premier League sides are losing the race for the 21-year-old.
