Brighton and Hove Albion are expected to go for Florin Andone from Deportivo La Coruña in the summer, according to reports from Spain today.
La Voz De Galícia claims the Seagulls will take advantage of the decrease in the player’s release clause to attempt to take him to the Premier League.
With Deportivo being relegated to Spain’s second division, Andone’s tag price will be going from €30m all the way down to €6m, making things ridiculously easy for the clubs who are interested in him.
With Brighton not having to spend so much on the transfer fee, they will use more money to convince the player to sign for them, offering him a salary of €2m per season, which doesn’t sound huge by Premier League standards.
Brighton’s insistence on signing Andone is said to be coming from manager Chris Hughton.
The boss’ big wish to count on the player makes the offer attractive not only economically, but sportingly as well.
