Brighton are ready to sell star midfielder Yves Bissouma amid reported interest from Arsenal.

The Gunners have been linked with a summer move for the 24-year-old midfielder as Mikel Arteta looks to improve upon the club's worst season in a generation.

Bissouma reportedly favours a move to Arsenal over any other club and Brighton chief executive Paul Barber is open to the player leaving in the summer.

"I don't see it as a negative at all," he told The Athletic. "The more the big clubs that are interested in our players, the more we're doing right, so I am delighted with that.

“We know some of our best players aren't going to be with us forever and, if the right offer comes along – and it has to be the right offer – and they want to leave, then they can go.

"If we've got players leaving, then we've got back-up internally, and we can go out into the transfer market.

“We're always looking ahead, we're always trying to scout the best young players and bring them into our squad, or loan them out. It's a really important part of what we do."
