Brighton are assessing the quality of Peru international Piero Quispe as a possible signing.
The Premier League side are aiming to improve their squad and bring in more young players.
Quispe is one who many scouts have been watching, but Brighton are aiming to steal a march on the competition.
Per reports in Peru, Quispe is one the Seagulls may look to sign as early as January.
Given his club, Universitario, are willing to make a sale, he will be available for a reasonable fee.
The 22-year-old is a diminutive, all-action midfielder who is said to have a style that can succeed in the Premier League.
