Brighton are watching Reims striker Boulaye Dia.
Le 10 Sport says Dia is being scouted by the Seagulls, though contact has yet to be made with Reims.
Dia is rated at €12-15m by his club, with Olympique Marseille also keen.
However at Reims' price, OM are refusing to do business.
In contrast, Brighton do boast the spending power to meet Bia's valuation should manager Graham Potter be willing to pull the trigger.
