Brighton make Crysencio Summerville enquiry as they look to beat Chelsea to transfer of £30m-rated Leeds star

BRIGHTON have made an enquiry for £30million-rated Leeds forward Crysencio Summerville.

The Seagulls are one of several clubs showing interest in the Dutch ace who was the Championship Player of the Year last season.

Crystal Palace and Chelsea are also in the hunt for Summerville, who scored 21 goals as his team came within a whisker of promotion — with Leeds losing the play-off final to Southampton.

The 22-year-old still has two years left on his contract at Elland Road so the Yorkshire giants will demand a sizeable fee.

Liverpool have been mentioned too in connection with the Under-21 international since March

As a kid, Summerville was with Feyenoord, the former club of new Anfield chief Arne Slot.

West HamFulham and Bournemouth are amongst other clubs said to be monitoring Summerville.

Leeds are also braced for abattle to keep Willy Gnonto and reported Borussia Dortmund target Archie Gray.

The Whites have previously knocked back a reported £25m approach from Everton for Gnonto.

The 13-cap Italian winger, 20, is now understood to be valued at £30m.

Summerville’s stats show why a string of major clubs are keen on him


Meanwhile, Gray’s versatility is much admired outside of Elland Road.

Despite twice playing for England U-21s, the 18-year-old still has the option to switch to Scotland at senior international level.

Durham-born Gray can play in central midfield or at right-back.

But Leeds will be boosted by suggestions he’d be willing to keep developing under Whites’ manager Daniel Farke.

French attacking midfielder Georginio Rutter, 22 is another of Farke’s men being eyed by top-flight clubs.
