Brighton midfielder Yves Bissouma was arrested on Wednesday night at a seaside night club for what was alleged to be a case of sexual assault.
The Brighton midfielder — who has been linked with a number of big clubs including Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal — had been partying with a pal in the early hours of yesterday when cops were called.
Bissouma, a likely big-money target in the upcoming January transfer window, was then detained by officers at popular city venue The Arch before being led away in handcuffs at around 2am.
An insider said: “The club was packed — it was a popular student night, especially with freshers in town.
“People were star-struck to see Bissouma in the club — he’s Brighton’s best player at the moment, so he definitely caught some eyes.
“They were even more shocked to see him later being led away in handcuffs outside the club.”
The nightclub was hosting a weekly promo night popular among students. Bissouma, on £45,000 a week, has been one of Brighton’s top performers this year, helping them soar to sixth in the Premier League table — just two points off the leaders.
