Brighton & Hove Albion Intensify Pursuit of Super Eagles Defender Calvin Bassey
Brighton & Hove Albion, the Premier League club known for their strategic transfer moves, have recently turned their attention towards Super Eagles defender, Calvin Bassey.

However, it seems that Brighton has rekindled their desire to secure Bassey’s services. Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano disclosed that the English club has already initiated contact with the Nigerian defender. Romano shared the update on his Twitter handle, stating, “Brighton have already started contacts for Calvin Bassey as new centre back. Levi Colwill deal looks complicated as Chelsea don’t change their position: he’s not for sale. 🔵 #BHAFC. De Zerbi appreciates Bassey, waiting for Ajax to clarify potential asking price.”
Bassey, at the age of 23, possesses immense potential and showcased his abilities during his 25 league appearances for Ajax last season, even finding the back of the net once. Brighton’s interest in the defender further demonstrates their ambition to strengthen their defensive line and solidify their presence in the Premier League.
The Seagulls’ pursuit of Bassey is a significant development in the ongoing transfer window, as they aim to bolster their squad ahead of the forthcoming season.
