Liverpool are reportedly ‘planning’ on submitting a ‘huge offer’ for long-linked midfielder Yves Bissouma in the winter window.
This comes from Ekrem Konur, with the fichajes journalist having released a tweet confirming the Reds’ interest in the Malian.
👀Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma is on Jurgen Klopp's radar for a long time.

The Merseyside-based outfit have been strongly linked with the Brighton & Hove Albion star since it was initially suggested that ex-No.5 Gini Wijnaldum could depart Anfield.
A replacement for our former, seemingly indestructible Dutch international seemed bolt-on given our reliance on his availability in a prior term defined by injuries and the resulting damage to our title retention hopes.
Going for the 25-year-old in January would be a somewhat late addition in that regard but perhaps a necessary one given how we’ve already seen Harvey Elliott ruled out for the long-term and Naby Keita succumb to yet another minor injury.
There are concerns over the player’s off-pitch behaviour, however, that could certainly present a barrier to a potential move.
That being said, we at the EOTK are encouraged by reports of Bissouma’s attempts to clean up his act.
