Two things Brighton must do in the January transfer window

Brighton and Hove Albion survived in the Premier League last season, despite struggling in the relegation zone for a good majority of the campaign.

In the ongoing season, however, Graham Potter’s men have shown remarkable improvement. And deservedly, they are placed 12th in the standings. On paper, it might not sound exciting but considering the slump they were in the last term, their present form seems quite good.

The Seagulls recently notched up a win against Arsenal, making quite a statement of intent in the Premier League. That was followed by a well-fought 2-2 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers but if anything, Brighton’s performances in recent times only indicate that better times are ahead for the south coast outfit.

Granted, there are certain things that need to be done to ensure a steady run and the upcoming January window would be the ideal time for Potter to make some much-needed changes. With that in mind, here are 2 things the Seagulls must do in the winter.

Tie down Aaron Mooy to fresh terms

The on-loan star from Huddersfield Town appears to be on a new lease of life with Brighton. Although he made a slow start, his performances over the last few weeks do signify that he is more than capable of being a viable long-term option for the Seagulls in the seasons to come.

As a matter of fact, after the win against Arsenal, Brighton and Hove Independent has reported that several fans have been urging the club to sign him permanently. And thus, offering a long-term deal to the 29-year-old must be considered by the hierarchy.

Solve the striker conundrum

Glenn Murray, 36, is without a goal after 11 league games and it is imperative for Brighton to find a new striker in the winter window. They have managed to stay afloat so far by scoring 20 goals in 16 games, thanks to the exploits of Neal Maupay and Pascal Gross, but things will become a lot difficult after January.

That is when the presence of a powerful No. 9 could work wonders for the club. Thus, Brighton must invest in signing a proven centre-forward once the transfer window commences in January.
