Brighton join Musa chase

  Brighton join Musa chase Brighton have joined the chase for West Brom target Ahmed Musa, who is set to leave Leicester this summer. Musa’s agent has claimed that both Brighton and West Brom have contacted the forward this summer. As quoted by The Express, his agent said this: “The interest from Turkey is very strong but he wants to remain in England.” “He could get his wish because some clubs have contacted us about him.” “West Brom and Brighton are among the clubs to have sounded him out over a potential move.” Brighton were promoted to the Premier League last season as they finished second in the Championship, with Newcastle pipping them to the title in the final few weeks of the season. It was reported that Turkish side Fenerbahce made a £16m offer for the winger but Musa is keen on staying in the Premier League. He appears to be out-of-favour at Leicester next season, with West Brom and Brighton offering escape routes.

Brighton's first Premier League game ended in defeat as two late Man City goals earned the visitors a 2-0 win at the Amex on Saturday evening.

City dominated possession but were made to wait until the 70th minute for their opener as Sergio Aguero finished smartly after a mistake by Dale Stephens.

Lewis Dunk's own goal five minutes later sealed victory for Pep Guardiola's side, who also had a Gabriel Jesus goal ruled out for handball.

Premier League title favourites Manchester City had to wait to break down promoted Brighton before two late goals gave them victory on the south coast. The Seagulls, back in the top flight after a 34-year absence, had showed impressive organisation and resolve to keep City at bay until David Silva

It almost got worse for the hosts on 27 minutes but Jesus' bundled finish was ruled out for handball by referee Michael Oliver.

City failed to make their dominance count before the break as a fantastic save by Mathew Ryan denied Jesus, who struck the post on the follow-up under pressure from Bruno.

The visitors had the ball in the net again after the break but Silva was adjudged offside, while Aguero wasted another opening after Shane Duffy's short back-pass put Brighton in trouble.

The hosts enjoyed a short spell of pressure shortly before Aguero's opener, with Duffy's deflected strike flying narrowly wide.

But they fell behind with 20 minutes to play and could not recover. Stephens surrendered possession cheaply in midfield and when Kevin De Bruyne played in David Silva, he picked out Aguero to finish.

The new City full-back marked his competitive debut with a sharp attacking performance.

He will get tougher tests defensively but made the most of City's dominance to storm forward at every opportunity, creating the game's opening chance for Aguero.

Full-back is a position Pep Guardiola attaches particular importance to and it was just the kind of performance from Walker that City often lacked last season.

Brighton will search for their maiden Premier League win when they travel to Leicester City next weekend, while Manchester City host Everton on Monday Night Football.
