The Scotsman has been in fine form in West London this season, notching an impressive 23 times across all competitions despite their perennial struggles.

Questions were raised when the Cottagers shelled out £11m to prize him away from Leeds United back in 2014, though he has proved potent in front of goal.

He is reported to have handed in a transfer request back in January and the manner in which the season has gone at Craven Cottage is not befitting of such a palpable goal threat.

Middlesbrough were thought to be chasing him in the last transfer window, though ended up moving for countryman Jordan Rhodes instead.

However, the Seagulls are now understood to have entered the race as they bid to add more firepower.

The South Coast side are indeed on the cusp of promotion after a scintillating 14-game unbeaten run and have goals running throughout the side.

Still, the only traditional striker who has reached double figures this term is Tomer Hemed, who has notched 16 times.

It is claimed a £15m bid is being lined up the club’s wealthy backers, despite the fact McCormack will soon reach the age of 30.

Brighton travel to recently relegated Charlton over the weekend, looking to keep the pace with table toppers Burnley and Middlesbrough, sitting outside the automatic promotion spots on goal difference.

Is £15m far too much of a gamble on a soon-to-be 30-year old?
