Brighton make bid for Nantes striker Emiliano Sala

Brighton have failed with a bid for Nantes striker Emiliano Sala.

The Sun says Brighton have failed with an ambitious £10million bid for Sala.

The Argentine ace has scored nine goals in 20 games this season for his French club, managed by ex-Chelsea and Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri.

Seagulls chief Chris Hughton hoped to land the 27-year-old to strengthen his newly-promoted side's hopes of Premier League survival.

And reports in France claim Brighton officials contacted Sala at the end of last week, while he was discussing a contract extension with Nantes.

The Amex Stadium club is said to have told the striker they would offer Nantes over £9m for him.
