Arsenal legend Ray Parlor has praised highly regarded Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma, claiming the star is the ‘one player’ he would want at his old club.
The talented Bissouma has impressed with the Amex since arriving in 2018 and also underlined his status as one of the most in-demand players in the process.
As a result, it is believed that Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal were all excited, and Parlor says Bissouma “has everything”.

“I have long said that Bissouma is a top player,” he continued talkSPORT.
“I would like to see him at Arsenal, I said that in the transfer window: the only player I would like to see is Bissouma.
‘I think he has everything. He is efficient on the ball, he can also put his foot in it, he can pass.
Parlor described Bissouma as ‘top class’ and the ‘one player’ he wants Arsenal to fill in
“He could probably score a few more goals, I imagine, but he’s not in a position to score goals. He’s the one who keeps everything going.’
Bissouma has also got off to a good start this season with Brighton currently sitting pretty in fourth place but expected to leave in a big money move.
Last month, before the summer window slammed, it was reported that Liverpool had made an opening move for him, with Bissouma valued at £40million.
However, his club were in no rush to sell him, having reluctantly allowed defender Ben White to leave for Arsenal on a £50m deal.

Parlor believes that deal, including on his former side, played a role in Bissouma’s stay at Brighton, but says it will continue to dazzle.
“I’m sure Brighton had to sell one of their players and it ended up being Ben White for £50million,” added Parlor. “But I think he’s going to be a top star, Bissouma.
‘He’s only 24′ [sic] too, so he has a lot of time ahead of him.’
Meanwhile, Bissouma himself has admitted that he would like to play in the Champions League in the future, but insisted he was reluctant to leave Brighton too early.

“I haven’t been this summer, maybe because it’s not my time to go,” Bissouma told Brighton’s official website.
“When my time comes, it’s my time, but I’m happy in Brighton, I enjoy playing football.
“My dream is, like any player, I want to play in the Champions League, I want to be champion. I want to compare myself at the highest level, not just with other players.’
