The Seagulls have already signed Dutch defender Joel Veltman alongside Wigan Atheltic teenager Jensen Weir and England international Adam Lallana, who signed on a free transfer following the expiration of his Liverpool contract.

However, two new names have entered into the betting. Josh King – a striker with recently relegated Bournemouth – has been installed at 8/1 with SkyBet to join Potter’s ranks.

The 28-year-old forward was reportedly subject of a £25 million offer from Manchester United on deadline day last January, but then-manager Eddie Howe knocked back the did.

And the Red Devils are firm favourites to re-sign King at 15/8, the rest of the field looks like this: Everton (3/1), Leicester City and Tottenham (6/1).

SkyBet have Brighton in the mix to sign a second player from Bournemouth, ex-Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, with the bookies offering odds of 12/1.

Reports suggest that interested parties will have to pay somewhere in the region of £22m if they are to land the stopper, with SkyBet offering odds on the Englishman joining Sheffield United (1/4), Chelsea (10/1), Aston Villa (12/1), Leeds United (12/1), Burnley and Southampton (16/1).

Indeed, the links could be bookmakers speak, with little foundation, and it is unclear if Potter’s ‘interest’ in the pair is genuine.
