Nottingham Forest, Derby County, Norwich City’s interest in Brighton man revealed

Brighton are set to lower their asking price for Christian Walton amid interest from the likes of Nottingham Forest and Derby County, according to Football Insider.

Forest, Derby, Norwich, Bournemouth, Swansea and Luton are all said to have shown an interest in the goalkeeper earlier this summer, but were priced out of a move for the 25-year-old.

But Brighton, who are looking to offload the shot-stopper on a permanent basis rather than on a loan basis, are now set to lower their demands as they look to generate a sale.

Walton joined Brighton from Plymouth as a youngster in 2013, but has since made only six first-team appearances for the Seagulls.

The 25-year-old has endured several loan spells away from the AMEX, spending time with the likes of Wigan, Luton and Blackburn.

He spent last season out of favour at Brighton, and with a year left on his contract, he could now be set to move on.

The Verdict

Walton could be a good signing for one of these sides, but I’m not sure Forest will still be interested.

Forest have since bolstered their goalkeeping options with the signing of Ethan Horvath, who joined on a three-year deal from Club Brugge to provide competition for Brice Samba.

Samba has endured a poor start to the season, though, so whether Chris Hughton is looking to offload him and bring in someone else remains to be seen.

Derby could do with a new goalkeeper, too, but at the moment, it seems impossible for them to bring in players for a fee.
