Brighton are still on the look-out for a new striker in the current window in order to help them cope with the step up to the PL, according to manager Chris Hughton.
The Seagulls completed the signing of Chelsea's Izzy Brown on-loan already, but Hughton has said that Brown will only be used as a number 10 or out wide. Speaking on the need for a striker, Hughton said: "It’s an incredibly tough league to do well in and score goals when you look at the type of defenders now that you are up against. It’s another area, and of course the toughest area and the most expensive. But we are aware of that. What we have got in Glenn (Murray) and Tomer (Hemed) is two players with good experience at a good level. But we want the best options we can." That suggests that a new arrival may displace last season's top scorer, Murray. The boss didn't rule out securing a striker as part of a loan deal, but admitted it hadn't been their planned strategy to be so reliant on loan agreements - expect more on this soon. Jul 31 - 5:54 PM
