According to the Daily Mail, Brighton and Hove Albion are weighing up a move for Cardiff City striker, Kenneth Zohore.
Zohore’s stock has risen in the last 12-months, with the striker impressing for Cardiff in the Sky Bet Championship, despite a slow start to life in the English second-tier.
Cardiff moved to sign Zohore permanently last summer following a brief loan spell, but it took Neil Warnock’s appointment last October to help the striker find his best form in the Championship.
Over the course of the 2016/17 season, Zohore scored 12 Championship goals for Cardiff, playing a key role in helping Warnock lift the Bluebirds away from the relegation zone and into the top-half of the table.
The Dutchman has started the 2017/18 campaign in excellent form, scoring one goal from Cardiff’s opening three fixtures, helping Warnock’s side top the Championship table.
Zohore’s early season form, combined with his goalscoring antics last year, has seen the striker attract plenty of interest so far this summer.
Hull City have made a £10m bid for Zohore, which has been rejected by Cardiff, but Brighton are now reportedly considering a move for the striker, as Chris Hughton looks to bolster his squad at the Amex Stadium.
Hughton was in attendance to watch Zohore in Tuesday’s victory over Sheffield United.
Interest in Zohore is no surprise, with the striker absolutely outstanding for Cardiff over the last 12-months, establishing himself as one of the best in the Championship.
Having turned down a £10m already, Cardiff are showing intent, and after three victories from three fixtures, Neil Warnock will be planning a serious push for promotion this season.
Zohore will be vital to Cardiff’s chance of a top-six finish and it would be no surprise to see the Bluebirds stand firm, even if the Premier League come knocking.
