Brighton’s Graham Potter ‘weighing up’ move for Swansea’s Bersant Celina – Sun


Bersant Celina’s Swansea stint

Bersant Celina has been on Swansea City’s books since 2018.

The 23-year-old joined the Welsh outfit from Manchester City for a fee believed to be around £3m.

Celina made just four appearances for Man City’s senior side but he would enjoy loan spells with Ipswich and FC Twente during his time with the Sky Blues.

Since making the switch to Swansea, Celina has made 69 appearances across all competitions for the Championship outfit.

In those 69 ties, Celina has scored 10 and assisted 11.

The Swansea City star is naturally a left-winger but he can also play on the right or through the middle.

Celina to Brighton?

Celina has scored two and assisted three in 26 Championship ties this term, which isn’t overly impressive.

Despite his fairly average goal and assist record this season, the former Man City man appears to be attracting the attention of a Premier League side.

According to the Sun, Brighton boss Graham Potter is weighing up a move for the Kosovo international.

Potter is already well acquainted with Celina from his time in the Swansea dugout and it appears the Brighton boss liked what he saw.

The report from the Sun speculates that Swansea may sell Celina for the right price, which the Sun put at around £10m.

Brighton vs Aston Villa

Brighton aren’t having a terrible season under the guidance of Potter. But after their 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday, the Seagulls remain just three points adrift of the relegation zone.

As a result, it probably wouldn’t hurt Brighton if they strengthened a bit in the current window.
