Brighton & Hove Albion are in the picture to sign Watford’s Yáser Asprilla, according to a report from Colombia.

The 19-year-old joined the Hornets in 2022 and finished the previous season with a goal and two assists from 39 games. He starred for Colombia at the U20 World Cup, scoring two goals from four matches and that has seen him arouse interest from European clubs.

According to journalist Christian Martin, relayed by Antena 2, Brighton are one of the clubs interested in signing the Watford player.

He claims Roberto De Zerbi’s side have already asked Watford for the conditions needed to secure Asprilla’s services. Martin further states the youngster has also been followed by Real Madrid for a ‘long time’.

As well as these two clubs, Napoli and Borussia Dortmund are interested in the South American.

Antena 2 state sources close to the clubs have informed the journalist of their interest in Asprilla. Their title states Real Madrid, Napoli and BVB all offer €4.5m for the player but Martin hasn’t mentioned this nor has it been backed within the report.

Asprilla’s contract at Watford expires in 2026.
