Brighton transfer news – Alexis Mac Allister sold to Liverpool

It’s a sad day for Brighton fans and Roberto De Zerbi, but one they have anticipated for some time now. Their Argentine midfielder who brought the World Cup back to the Amex Stadium has left the club and signed for Liverpool.

It’s time for Brighton to consider their replacement options.

Brighton transfer news – Club record bid for Levi Colwill

From bad news to good news. Brighton fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief as the board shares the same opinion as the fans – this club NEEDS Levi Colwill. After an impressive loan spell at the Amex Stadium last season, he has returned to Chelsea but the Seagulls want him back ASAP.

According to the latest from 90min, Brighton are preparing a £40m bid for Levi Colwill, which would become the club’s record transfer fee should it be accepted. However, the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino at Chelsea may complicate this matter.

Brighton transfer news – No more than £80m for Moises Caicedo

Having been essentially robbed for Alexis Mac Allister, Brighton fans will be happy that the board are demanding more should they let Moises Caicedo go. As Fabrizio Romano understands, the board can expect any fee between £70m-£80m. Chelsea and Arsenal are the interested clubs.
