Ibrahim Osman’s development at FC Nordsjælland has seen a few Premier League sides take notice, including Brighton & Hove Albion.

Last Thursday, Tipsbladet reported the Seagulls have joined the race to sign the forward and that a fee of around €20m is needed to secure a deal in the winter market.

Sky Deutschland journalist Patrick Berger took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to share the latest information on Brighton.

He claims Brentford are keeping an eye on the 19-year-old’s situation, while Roberto D Zerbi’s side are ‘now pushing’ to acquire the Ghanian’s signature, likely in the winter market.

Brighton seem to be ahead of the Bees in the transfer race. The journalist claims the Seagulls ‘make an offer’ of €20m plus €3m bonuses and this meets Nordsjælland’s request of €20m mentioned earlier in the Danish media.

West Ham United showed keen interest in the attacker, but their deal is apparently off because of a dispute between agents. On Monday, BT reported Osman is represented by Darryl Powel but wants Mitch Bakkovens to take care of his interest.

The Danish football association [DBU] have confirmed the dispute between the two agents and have insisted that Bakkovens representing the player would be “against the football agent rules”.

Berger makes no mention of which agent is leading the negotiations for a potential deal to take Osman to Brighton, and it can’t be ruled out that the Seagulls will face similar problems to West Ham.
