Brighton is preparing for an XXL bloodletting!
Will Brighton discover the other side of the coin this summer? Sixth in the Premier League under Roberto de Zerbi, the Seagulls have had a tremendous season punctuated by a European place next season. But now, going from the fight to maintain (16th in 2020-2021) to Europe in a few months, the club will inevitably be taken by storm on the transfer market this summer. While they have managed to shine in the De Zerbi system, some of its executives are targeted by the biggest clubs in the world. This is particularly the case of Alexis Mac Allister whose departure this summer leaves little doubt. Indeed, benefiting from an important role during the coronation of Argentina at the last World Cup, Mac Allister should not miss the departure plane this summer. Whoever has scored 12 times this season should sign for Liverpool as announced by all of the British press.
Like its eventful winter, the club from the south of England is preparing to experience a hot summer for Moisès Caicedo. Priority target of Arsenal, who had not hesitated to make a wonderful offer of 80 million euros to afford it last January, he seemed enthusiastic about the idea of joining London. Between many hiccups in negotiations with the Gunners and with Chelsea, who entered the dance at the very end of the transfer window, the Ecuadorian midfielder finally stayed and even extended until 2027 with his current club. Nevertheless, the midfield market is likely to blow up the transfer window this summer and the 21-year-old represents one of the biggest prospects in his position. As a result, he will necessarily be in demand and will Brighton be able to resist in the event of an offer of around 100 million euros?
PL heavyweights eye Brighton’s attacking geniuses
Other players could bring this sum to the club in the south of England or even exceed it. And at this little game, Evan Ferguson is clearly the one who can become the most expensive sale in the history of the Seagulls this summer. While club officials believe the young (18) striker can be worth €115m after extending it until 2028, some top English teams are said to be ready to break the bank for the Irishman. Author of 16 goals and 5 assists in 32 matches this season, the slender striker would be on the shelves of Manchester United and Tottenham, under the spell of his technical palette according to Sky Sports this Tuesday. According to the indiscretions of the English media, it was even rumored that Manchester City could think of him in the event of the surprise departure of Erling Haaland in the coming months.
Brighton’s attacking genius this season, Kaoru Mitoma is also eagerly courted. The Sun told last March that Manchester United scouts were closely following the Japanese who has 10 goals and 7 assists this season in the south of England. Arrived in 2021, the Japanese international has exploded this season becoming one of the most decisive attacking players across the Channel. At 26, he could be tempted by a big transfer this summer when he is estimated at 22 million euros by Transfermarkt. Under contract until 2025, there is no doubt that the Brighton board values him at a much higher price on which his courtiers could align themselves. Faced with all these potential sales which would greatly weaken Brighton’s workforce but would bail out the coffers, the club’s leaders should also be active in the direction of arrivals to compensate for its possible departures. In short, the summer will be very long in the seaside town.
