It was being reported yesterday that Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Davy Propper was now a target for Spanish La Liga side Sevilla.

Apparently, the club are suffering from a number of injuries in the first half of the year – despite it only being a couple of months old – and the word ‘crisis’ was used by Football-Espana to describe their situation.

It means nothing to me as I don’t follow Spanish football but apparently, Ibrahim Amadou and Maxime Gonalons have suffered a dislocated elbow and a fractured fibula respectively, and the suggestion is that they have targetted our Dutch international as a possible replacement ahead of the January transfer window opening.

Having joined from PSV Eindhoven in August 2017, the 27-year-old has made 47 appearances in total for manager Chris Hughton, with 42 of those being starts – the most recent of which being Tottenham Hotspur last weekend – so I can’t imagine we’d be looking to deal unless they came in with an incredibly silly offer that we just couldn’t turn down given spending last summer.

The report makes no claims on whether their interest is permanent or a loan it must be said – but neither seems feasible to me.
