Manchester City had seen a bit of a cool down on transfer rumors, but we are back as two midfielders have been linked to City in just the last day.

This time its Yves Bissouma from Brighton. The Cross Daily Star reported City want the player and are ready to pay £30M. Pep allegedly really likes him and the price would be fair.

He is probably the closest thing to Fernandinho in the Prem and that price is more than manageable. As Ferna’s seems close to an exit this would be a great deal for a solid player.

Bissouma has enjoyed a bit of a breakout season with him leading the defensive line for Brighton and has performed well for that side. Bissouma is a true defensive midfielder and has the skills and vision to play that position for Pep’s side.

City will want to close this deal soon if they are seriously interested.
