BBC Sport journalist Simon Stone has revealed the fee agreed between Tottenham Hotspur and Yves Bissouma could reach £30m if all the conditional add-ons are met.

The Times were the first to report yesterday that Spurs had agreed on a fee of £25m for Brighton for the transfer of Bissouma, with the midfielder expected to have his medical at Hotspur Way later this week.

90 min subsequently claimed that Spurs beat out competition from both Aston Villa and Newcastle United to snap up the 25-year-old.

Stone has now revealed that the Seagulls could stand to make £30m from the deal based on the various add-ons involved.

Bissouma looks set to join Conte’s current midfield ranks, which includes Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Oliver Skipp, Rodrigo Bentancur, and Harry Winks as we head towards pre-season.

£30m for Bissouma could well be the best deal (pound-for-pound) of the summer transfer window, particularly considering how highly priced some of the other midfielders in Premier League are. The Mali international’s addition adds considerable depth to our midfield ranks.
