The head coach of the English club Tottenham Hotspur Antonio Conte has signed his third player during the summer transfer window. He signed Yves Bissouma, a midfielder for the Mali national soccer team. Previously, Conte had acquired midfielder Ivan Peresic and goalkeeper Fraser Forster.
Looking at Conte’s selection, it is easy to say that he is trying to strengthen his team to bounce back from last season’s fourth-place finish in the English Premier League.

The news that Yves Bissouma has moved to Tottenham Hotspur was published on the official website of the English club. There it became known that the contract between the midfielder and the club was signed for four years, until 2026.
Tottenham Hotspur paid around €29 million for Yves Bissouma. Interestingly, Transfermarkt values the player at €35 million.
The first club of the 25-year-old footballer was French LOSC Lille. With this team, he participated in 63 games and scored six goals against the opponents.
He played 123 matches for Brighton and Hove Albion and managed to score six goals.
He also played in 18 games for the Mali national team and scored three goals.
Yves Bissouma’s reaction
The footballer himself said that he still finds it hard to believe that he will play for a club that participates in the most prestigious European championship.
According to Bissouma, soccer has always been not just a part of his life, but his very life: he played it every day. And when he didn’t play, he felt miserable.
“We played outside with friends. We didn’t have shoes, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying every moment of life.”
Yves Bissouma had dreamed of the UEFA Champions League since childhood and never missed a game during the season.
“I’m very happy to be here. I hope we have a good season ahead of us. I’m going to give my best to win every game and stay on top.”
Yves understands that playing in the English Premier League is not easy: you have to train hard every day to be successful. However, he is not worried, because he has a great team and a great coach, whom everyone knows. Bissouma believes that Antonio Conte will help him become what Yves wants to be.
Who else can we wait for at the Tottenham Hotspur club?
Antonio Conte is not going to stop there, the more so because the English club management has allocated the head coach about 150 million pounds for the players.
Most likely there will be at least five transfers this summer. It is known that Conte is most interested in the following players: defenders Pau Torres and Djed Spence from clubs Villarreal and Middlesbrough, attacking midfielders Christian Eriksen and Raphinha from Brentford and Leeds United, and striker Richarlison from Everton.
