Barnes on Bissouma

Liverpool legend John Barnes reckons Brighton ace Yves Bissouma is more suited for the Reds rather than their Premier League rivals Newcastle and Aston Villa.

Bissouma’s been linked with all three Prem sides but if the midfielder wants to compete for titles instead of battling for survival then Anfield is the perfect place for him, according to Barnes.

Speaking to BonusCodeBets, Barnes said: “From a Liverpool perspective, it would be lovely to see Yves Bissouma playing at Anfield rather than for Newcastle or Aston Villa.

“If you look at the age of Liverpool’s midfielders, a lot of them are aged 30 or older, Yves is young and would be an excellent signing for the club.

“As to whether Bissouma wants to leave Brighton right now and sign for another team in a relegation dog fight, then that’s up to him.

“He must decide what is right for himself, but the quality he possesses at this stage of his career – he should be aiming higher [than Aston Villa or Newcastle].

”Newcastle is a great club, but if you ask people Liverpool or Newcastle, then it’s a no brainer [you’d pick Liverpool].

“If you wanted to create a template for the ideal Liverpool central midfielder, Bissouma fits it perfectly.”
