Tottenham expect to complete the £25million signing of Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma after he passed a medical on Thursday.

Spurs are keen to make midfielder Bissouma their third summer addition following the arrivals of free transfer duo Ivan Perisic and Fraser Forster. 

Bissouma has just one year left on his contract at the Amex. 

Mali midfielder Bissouma joined Brighton for around £13m from Lille in 2018 and has caught the eye of a number of Premier League clubs with his all-action displays. 

The Times report Bissouma was arrested under suspicion of sexual assault last October and is waiting to learn the outcome of the police probe after being released under investigation prior to the Africa Cup of Nations.

Spurs boss Antonio Conte is keen to make midfielder Bissouma his third summer addition

Should he complete the move, he will give Antonio Conte another high quality midfield option. 

Rodrigo Bentancur arrived in January and predominantly partnered Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg for the remainder of the season as Spurs qualified for the Champions League. 

Conte’s midfield strengthening is set to result in academy product Harry Winks being squeezed out, though he is a man in demand with interest from the likes of Everton and Crystal Palace. 

Conte is also targeting reinforcements in defence, further forward in midfield and attack.
