Biography

Yves Bissouma (born 30 August 1996) is a Malian professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for Premier League club Brighton & Hove Albion and the Mali national team.

Club career

Early career

Born in Ivory Coast, but raised in Mali, Bissouma started his career at the Majestic SC academy in 2009, where he played with Adama Traoré. In 2014, he joined AS Real Bamako.

Lille

On 7 July 2016, four months after having arrived at Lille OSC from AS Real Bamako, Bissouma signed his first professional contract with the club, with a duration of three years.

Brighton & Hove Albion

On 17 July 2018, Bissouma transferred to English side Brighton & Hove Albion for an undisclosed fee, signing a five-year contract with the club. Bissouma made his debut for the Sussex club on the opening day of the 2018–19 Premier League season in a 2–0 away loss to Watford where he came on as a substitute. He made his first start in Brighton's third match of the season where they lost 1–0 away at Liverpool. On 5 January 2019 Bissouma scored his first Albion goal on his FA Cup debut in a 3–1 away win against south coast rivals Bournemouth in the third round.

He scored his first ever Premier League goal on the last day of the 2019–20 season with a long-range shot in a 2–1 away win against Burnley. Bissouma was given a straight red card late on in Brighton's 3–0 away victory over Newcastle in their second league match of the 2020–21 season for catching Jamal Lewis in the face with his boot. He scored his first goal of the season in a 4–2 away defeat against Everton on 3 October. On 23 January 2021, in a fourth round FA Cup tie, Bissouma scored a 30 yard goal to put Brighton ahead in a 2–1 home win against Blackpool.

On 21 August, in Brighton's second match of the 2021–22 season he made his first Albion assist intercepting play that guided Neal Maupay right in front of goal where he doubled the lead in the 2–0 home victory over Watford.

International career

Born in the Ivory Coast and raised in Mali, Bissouma participated at the 2016 African Nations Championship with Mali. In the semi-final against the Ivory Coast, he was substituted on in the 76th minute and scored the decisive goal for 1–0 in the 89th minute.
