Arsenal’s decision to consider other midfield options could boost Liverpool’s chances of signing <strong>Yves Bissouma</strong> from Brighton. The Mail cites Fabrizio Romano as saying the Gunners are no longer interested in the 24-year-old, who has impressed since joining Brighton in 2018, which the paper reports could see the Mali international end up at Anfield.

What the papers say

The Reds are also interested in signing Turkey centre-back Ozan Kabak permanently, according to the Times. The paper says RB Leipzig’s desire to be paid the £34million release clause in full for Ibrahima Konate has pushed Liverpool’s eyes to fellow 21-year-old Kabak, who arrived on loan at Anfield from Schalke in January.
