The 24-year-old mildfielder, who joined Brighton for £15m from Lille in 2018, has been a standout performer in a struggling premier league side this season and has attracted interest of a host of England’s biggest clubs.
The Cityzens have been linked with a number of midfielders this summer, and with Fernandinho looking like leaving the Etihad at the end of the season, they do need reinforcements in that area.

According to Daily star, Man City are plotting a £30M move for the Brighton midfielder this summer, having backed out of a potential bidding war for West Ham’s Declan Rice.
The report claims Pep Guardiola is ‘confident’ of winning the race to land Bissouma, having watched him on ‘several occasions’ this season.
