Brighton And Hove Albion Want This Everton Forward: Can He Propel Them To New Heights?

Premier League newcomers Brighton & Hove Albion might not have chiselled a spectacular start to their season in the English top division, but they indeed appear to be a side capable of finding themselves inside the rendezvous zone. The Seagulls have collected seven points from their first six league outings, with their latest game ending in a 1-0 victory for them at their very own backyard against Rafael Benitez’s Newcastle United.

Under the tutelage of Chris Hughton, Brighton & Hove Albion considerably reshaped and bolstered their arsenal by luring the likes of Mathew Ryan, Jose Izquierdo, Davy Propper and Markus Suttner to the Falmer Stadium.

Hughton was exceptionally smart during the summer transfer window in striking the rights deals to cater to the needs of the club for the long journey. However, he is keen to make further additions in January when the transfer window reopens.

Reportedly, the former Norwich City manager has put Everton’s Oumar Niasse on his radar. Until recently, Niasse’s attacking prowess was being serially overlooked by Ronald Koeman and his stature in the ranks of the Toffees was reduced to that of an outcast.

However, the Senegal international has started to find momentum of late, having found the back of the net once in Everton’s 3-0 victory over Sunderland in the League Cup, which was followed by his brace against Bournemouth, wherein the Cherries gave away their lead and handed Koeman’s troops a 2-1 win at the Goodison Park.

Niasse arrived at the Merseyside in a £13.5million deal from Lokomotiv Moscow during the January transfer window of 2016 after having made a name for himself in the Russian Premier League. But being exiled from Koeman’s tactical nous did take a toll on the career of the striker.

Given the apparent uncertainty which still hovers over the future of the 27-year-old with Everton, Brighton & Hove Albion might try to prise him out of the clutches of Koeman. Niasse is a player of fine calibre and experience and has raw pace in his legs, with predatory instinct in front of the goal.

Physically, he is a very strong player who can be a tricky customer up front with his crisp passes and shrewd movements on and off the ball. Besides, he toils relentlessly, unites with his teammates meticulously and has the elements of being handy for any good side.

A move to Albion, with words of encouragement from Hughton, should personally tempt the player as well as it might enable him in reshaping his career and performing to his utmost potential.
