Brighton, with their astute businessman owner and chairman Tony Bloom at the helm, is renowned for playing hardball in negotiations. Following Declan Rice’s mega £105 million transfer to Arsenal, Brighton are understandably aiming for a similar £100 million figure for the talented Ecuadorian international.
The two Premier League giants have had their respective histories with Brighton. Liverpool, earlier this summer, struck a deal for Alexis Mac Allister, a deal potentially rising to £55 million. Meanwhile, Chelsea, no stranger to the dealings with the Seagulls, have made significant moves, like the recent acquisition of goalkeeper Robert Sanchez for £25 million.
