Brighton are hot on the tail of talented Reims midfielder Marshall Munetsi.
The 26-year-old Zimbabwe international may be the man the Albion turn to in order to replace Yves Bissouma.
The central midfielder departed for Tottenham, leaving a significant hole in manager Graham Potter's team.
Brighton scouts and analysts think favourably of Munetsi, which makes a deal likely to happen, according to the Daily Mail.
While he did sign a new deal recently, Reims would be willing to sell him for around £7 million.
Brighton have already secured Paraguay wonderkid Julio Enciso this summer.
