Brighton & Hove Albion Eyeing This Crystal Palace Hitman: A Decent Deal On The Cards?

Brighton & Hove Albion underwent a sensational season in the second division of English football as they secured an automatic promotion spot by ending their Championship campaign, courtesy of their finish as the runners-up. Chris Hughton masterminded in what eventually turned out to be a campaign worth remembering (despite Newcastle United leapfrogging past them to clinch the silverware) and it goes without saying after what transpired that the Seagulls deserved the uplift which they manoeuvred in such a riveting manner.

However, they would have to add fresh faces to their ranks in order to boost their chances of staying in the Premier League beyond the coming season. The quality which the English top flight demands from the clubs is simply humungous and more often than not, teams without a strong financial muscle find themselves flirting with the relegation zone. Thus, it isn’t hard to deduce that Hughton needs to make some stupendously shrewd signings and bolster his armoury as they venture into the Premier League.

One of the players to have been linked of late with a move to the American Express Community Stadium is Crystal Palace’s out-of-favour striker Frazier Campbell. At the outset of his career, it seemingly appeared that Campbell would be one of the finest products to have been produced on the English soil and would be nightmares for even the most resolute of defences. However, as the years passed by, the 29-year-old has failed to muster anything substantial so far and has seen his stocks fall rapidly.

With just 11 appearances with the Eagles this season (all of which were as substitutions), Campbell has scored merely 1 goal and his stature has further diminished. At this point of his career, he would wish to move away from the doldrums he has been accustomed to be in and attempt for one last shot in the Premier League with a side where he would be actually valued and caressed.

His contract expires in the summer and thus, if Brighton & Hove Albion actually come knocking at his door, he shouldn’t refrain from giving them a nod. More than anything else, Hughton would need players with Premier League experience and Campbell certainly fits the bill. The Englishman is a decent striker who is pleasantly clinical, has the requisite pace in his legs, gels well with the attackers in the final third, and is clever with his movements and works hard up front and thus, he could be an ideal addition for Brighton.
