 claim Newcastle will hold fresh talks over a move for the Brighton midfielder.

But the club are demanding a transfer fee of £50 million.

If Newcastle table such offer, then it would shatter their transfer record which currently stands at £40 million – the fee to draft in Joelinton.

Bissouma ​has 18 months left on his current deal, with Brighton seemingly looking to cash in on one of their prized assets to avoid a free transfer scenario.

The 25-year-old is in his fourth season at Brighton, having joined the club from Lille in 2018 for a reported £17 million. ​

He’s starred in England, making a name for himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the league.

The Mali international is currently at AFCON and has played in all three of their matches.

With two signings already completed this month, Eddie Howe is hoping for more reinforcements with his team still occupying a precarious position in the league despite winning last weekend.

Newcastle beat Leeds United to move to 15 points from 21 games. They’re one point behind seventeenth-placed Norwich who beat Watford 3-0 in a basement battle.
