Report: Tottenham close to completing £25M deal for Brighton star midfielder

By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur is reportedly on the verge of securing its third transfer of the summer transfer window. Spurs want to continue improving their midfield despite the recent addition of Rodrigo Bentancur this past January.

According to ESPN, the north London club are close to completing a £25 million deal for Brighton & Hove Albion midfielder Yves Bissouma. The 25-year-old is expected to undergo a medical later this week and sign a five-year contract.

Spurs were interested in Bissouma in January but could not find an agreement on a fee with Brighton. As a result, the Seagulls have reluctantly allowed the Mali international to leave, given he has one year left on his current contract.

Bissouma does bring a still pending police investigation should a deal be completed for the midfielder. He was arrested last October under suspicion of sexual assault but was released. 

This past season, Bissouma appeared in 28 fixtures for Brighton, where he scored two goals and provided two assists.

OK, what’s going on. It seems ever player we are connected to is a STAR. Just seen the front page of Boy Hotspur and we are after 5 stars.

Leeds Star. Everton star. Lyon star. Torino star and a Brighton star. When has every player become a “STAR” in my days Ardiles, Hoddle, Klinsmann etc were Stars ***

There has been a trend for some time now for reporters and commentators of the game to over exaggerate passages of play or individual goals.Everything is brilliant,such an overused word.

My feeling is that it masks what,with few exceptions of teams and players,is a fairly mediocre and sometimes painful watch.Last nights game being a prime example.

Everybody’s a dreamer and everybody’s a star
And everybody’s in show biz, it doesn’t matter who you are
And those who are successful
Be always on your guard
Success walks hand in hand with failure
Along Hollywood Boulevard

If not a “star”, then an “ace”, or a “XX million rated man”, or a “insert nationality”, or “insert former club”, “insert age and position”. It’s almost reached template/fill in the blank stage, as writers try to stretch 15 words of content into a 300 word piece. And I don’t aim that critique at this site, it’s just what football writing across the board has become. The site hosting our friend Mr. Gold is almost comically predictable in format – two to three paragraphs of irrelevant or blatantly obvious filler, followed by two sentences of content, all under a click-bait headline. News, analysis, and commentary is in short supply.
