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.

Aguero squandered City's first chance when he mis-kicked from Kyle Walker's cross, before Izzy Brown was forced off for Brighton with a suspected hamstring injury.

A stunning counter-attacking Liverpool performance was enough to beat Brighton and Hove Albion on Sunday (AEDT) as Roberto Firmino starred. Brighton has made Amex Stadium somewhat of a fortress this season, previously losing only to Manchester City , but it could not deny Liverpool a

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.

Niasse interested in Brighton move

  Niasse interested in Brighton move Everton outcast Oumar Niasse is wanted by Premier League newsboys Brighton and Hove Albion, according to the Liverpool Echo, and Niasse is reportedly keen on a move to the Seagulls. The Echo reported yesterday that Brighton were keen on signing the Senegal international, after the Toffees made the striker available for sale once again this summer. Signed for £13.5million by Roberto Martínez in the last few months of his Blues tenure, Niasse struggled with injuries and poor form in his short Everton career. Last season, incoming manager Ronald Koeman was keen to shift Niasse as he wouldn’t feature in his plans, and subsequently didn’t award the former Lokomotiv Moscow man a squad number or a changing room locker. Despite the club not finding any permanent suitors, Hull City took Niasse on loan in January, where he scored five goals in 19 games in all competitions. Despite giving him a squad number on his return to USM Finch Farm this summer, Koeman is keen to move him on for good, with the 27-year old not having featured at all in pre-season. Brighton don’t possess an abundance of Premier League experience amongst their squad, and are considering Niasse ahead of their first season in the top flight since 1983. Twitter: Oumar Niasse fancies the move to Brighton as he wants to join a club where he will have a good chance of regular top-flight starts (@DeanJonesBR) Niasse would reportedly be open to the move, as he believes a move to the Amex would offer him a good chance at regular football.

The top-flight class of Manchester City and Sergio Aguero eventually told as Brighton and Hove Albion's Premier League bow ended in a 2-0 defeat. Chris Hughton's men held firm in the face of near incessant attacking from the pre-season title favourite, but a late strike from Aguero and Lewis Dunk's

City kept their foot down and got their second through Dunk, who headed past his own goalkeeper under pressure from Jesus.

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.

What next?

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.
