Brighton Monitoring U’s Defender

Oxford United defender Stephan Negru is being monitored by Premier League outfit, Brighton, according to Oxford UnitedSportsfile - Shelbourne v St Patrick's Athletic - SSE Airtricity League Premier Division - 2349965

The 21-year-old, who only joined the club in January, has showcased his potential with some impressive displays in the absence of Jordan Thorniley.

The Dubliner, who is eligible to play international football for Ireland and Moldova, has made just six appearances for the U’s since his arrival, but has completed 90 minutes on four occasions.

McCadden adds that Brighton are continuing their pursuit of Derby defender, Eiran Cashin. However, the Seagulls have been chasing the Ireland U21 centre back all summer and have failed to reach an agreement with the Rams.

As a result, the south coast club have sent scouts to watch Negru in action for Oxford and are said to be impressed with his early season form.

Losing Negru would be a blow given how well he has begun the current campaign. However, the Seagulls would likely offer a decent package for the 21-year-old, who could even loan the defender back to the U’s for the remainder of the season.

Arsenal are preparing a move to sign Brighton striker Evan Ferguson before Manchester United can get in on the act, according to a report.

Ferguson outlined his potential across 25 appearances for Brighton last season, in which he scored 10 goals. The Republic of Ireland international is already on the radar of some of the Premier League’s biggest clubs as a result.

According to Football Transfers, the ‘most likely’ side to make a move for him would be Arsenal. They have identified the centre-forward position as a role to strengthen amid injury issues for Gabriel Jesus.
