Brighton signing this 19-year-old whizkid who starred for Belgium in Euro U21 would be an intelligent move

Brighton Opinion – Seagulls in for Francis Amuzu – Good Move?

According to a report in Brighton and Hove Independent, Brighton and Southampton are interested in signing Anderlecht attacker Francis Amuzu during this transfer window.

The 19-year-old, who made his senior debut for Anderlecht during the 2017/18 season and took part in the recently-concluded U21 Euro for Belgium, has only one year left in his contract at Lotto Park.

The Premier League duo are monitoring his progress and could make a move for him ahead of next season.

Both Brighton and Southampton were short on goals scored last season. Hence, it makes sense for them to take a closer look at this attacker. However, here’s why the former should beat the latter for the youngster:

Seagulls could do with a dynamic addition in the front line

Francis Amuzu is a versatile forward, who can play in quite a few positions across the front line. Predominantly a left-winger, the 19-year-old is capable of playing on the other side or as a support striker if required.

In terms of his attributes, the Belgium U21 international possesses lightning pace to stretch the opposition defence at all times. He has a very good dribbling skill-set that helps him bamboozle defenders on the ball in the final third.

Furthermore, Amuzu is good at picking out crosses and can shoot by cutting inside on his right/left foot. He is also physically strong enough to hold off the challenges.

It has to be said that the youngster is a dynamic player, who can add something different to any front line. For that reason, Brighton are right to monitor him for a move ahead of next season.

The Seagulls have lacked the dynamism in the final third and Amuzu’s addition could just supply that.
