Albion head coach Graham Potter will have to make some shrewd moves in the summer transfer window if Albion are to improve on a ninth placed finish in the Premier League.

The Seagulls impressed last campaign and the trick now is to try and keep the majority of their best players for next term.

Influential midfielder Yves Bissouma, goalkeeper Rob Sanchez, Spanish star Marc Cucurella and playmaker Leo Trossard all delivered eye-catching displays and have attracted interest from elsewhere.

Bissouma – who is wanted by Arsenal, Newcastle, Aston Villa, and Monaco – has just 12 months remaining on his contract and looks the most likely out of Potter’s best players to depart.

Trossard is another with just a year remaining on his deal and his future sounded far from certain earlier this year when he said he will be listening to other offers.

Cucurella is another hot property and his debut season in the Premier League took many by surprise and alerted the attentions of Chelsea and Man City.

It would take a huge sum to snatch the wild-haired 23-year-old Spaniard but then City are not exactly short of sheckles. It just depends how badly they want him.

Albion fans will also hope to keep Leicester and Newcastle target Sanchez for another year after he recovered from a few early season wobbles to help Brighton to their best finish.

Here’s how Albion’s best XI could look at the start of next season – after the summer transfer window.
