Brighton

The prolific French striker playing in Holland that could keep Brighton in the Premier League

Published

After three years of play-off heartbreak in the last four seasons, Brighton have finally lifted the curse, and will be playing in the Premier League next season.

The Seagulls have been the most consistent side in the league, and are one win away from the Championship crown.

A number of key performers have emerged throughout the team this year.

Centre back pairing, Shane Duffy and Lewis Dunk, boast the best defensive record in the league this year.

Glenn Murray has smashed 22 league goals at the ripe old age of 33, and midfield maestro, Anthony Knockaert, was recently named the Championship Player of the Season.

All in all, a good year for Chris Hughton’s side.

Securing the title will be next on the agenda, but with promotion secured, the former Newcastle boss will be looking ahead to Brighton’s first season of Premier league football.

Brighton have a very strong squad, but the top flight is a whole new ball game.

Hughton will need to add additional depth and quality to the team over the summer, and their ability to find the back of the net will be key to their survival.

Murray, Knockaert, Sam Baldock and Tomer Hemed have proven consistent in front of goal this season, but Hughton will know he needs to add more to his frontline.

One man who could do the job for Brighton currently plys his trade in the Eredivisie, and a series of impressive seasons have seen the player become one of the hottest prospects in Dutch football.

That man, is FC Utrecht striker, Sebastien Haller.

The French striker joined the Dutch side from Auxerre in 2015, and averages almost a goal every other game.

13 goals and 5 assists this year have led the side from central Netherlands to a fourth placed finish, and possible European football next season.

The time seems right for Haller to move on, and a jump over the Channel would be an excellent move for the player.

Brighton must add quality to their frontline if they are to survive and thrive next year, and Haller is a man with a proven track record for goals.

Brighton will have money to spend this summer, and Haller should come with a relatively reasonable price tag.

Interest in the player will be high this summer, so Hughton must look to tie up a deal for the player quickly.
