The Seagulls are said to have opened talks with Gross on a new deal but the German hinted last season that he would be open for a return to Germany for professional and also family reasons.

Dortmund are very keen on the former FC Ingolstadt man, while Eintracht Frankfurt are also believed to be in the running.

German football expert Florian Plettenberg, posted: “Talks between Borussia Dortmund and Pascal Groß and his management are becoming more concrete and are progressing very positively… but at this stage, no verbal agreement yet. Groß, on the list of @BVB as revealed a few weeks ago in our show!

“New price expectation: €7-10 million with one year left on his contract. Frankfurt, also very interested.”

Losing Gross would be a painful blow for Brighton and their fans. The German has proved hugely popular at the Amex Stadium following his bargain £3m to the Seagulls from FC Ingolstadt in 2017.

Gross has made 261 appearances for Brighton in total with 32 goals and a remarkable 52 assists. He is without doubt one of Albion's best players from their Premier League era.
