Mali national team Bisuma moved to Brighton, England, from Lille, France in 2018. In four seasons with Brighton, he played 123 appearances and scored six goals. In the 2021-22 season, Brighton finished ninth, the highest in the club’s history, and Visuma played a total of 26 games, leading the team’s success. He contributed to Mali’s runners-up in the African Cup of Nations.
Bisuma is well known to domestic fans through Hwang Hee-chan. Hwang Hee-chan, who returned to Korea after his first season at Wolverhampton, said in an interview with a Korean reporter, “I felt that Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip (above Liverpool), and Bisuma were really good among the players I played in the English Premier League.”
Bisuma’s strong physical strength and tremendous amount of activity are these strengths.
Brighton manager Graham Porter said: “Bizuma was a really important player for our team. He wanted to go to Tottenham and play in the Champions League.”
Bizuma is Tottenham’s third signing in the summer transfer window. Earlier, wing-back Ivan Perisic and goalkeeper Fraser Foster were signed. Tottenham Hotspur are spurring additional signings. Tottenham manager Antonio Conte wants to sign at least six players this summer.
