Bissouma has picked up five yellow cards from his 16 matches in the top flight this season, meaning he’ll be suspended for Albion’s next match against Manchester City on Wednesday night.
Yet though Arsenal are worried, they’re keen to snap him up nonetheless.
It’s claimed three players are factored into their plan, with Arteta expected to sell Granit Xhaka.
Dani Ceballos is primed to return to parent club Real Madrid, while Joe Willock isn’t considered good enough to start every week.
And while Arsenal fans can be forgiven for wanting Bissouma to sign in January, a move at the end of the campaign seems far likelier.
Meanwhile, speaking recently, Gunners icon Kevin Campbell endorsed the Brighton star as a transfer target and expressed a belief he’d shine alongside Thomas Partey in midfield.
