Brighton are reportedly still in the race for Argentine sensation Jonathan Calleri

Plenty of other teams have been keeping tabs on the talented forward.

Jonathan Calleri has fast become one of the most wanted players in European football.

The Argentine striker is all set to leave Boca Juniors in the New Year with big teams from England and Italy being linked with his signature - despite the player himself being quoted by the Daily Star today as wanting another six months in Argentina.

But Brighton and Hove Albion still believe they can pull off a coup.

The Argus is reporting today that Brighton remain heavily interested in a move for the Argentine despite the presence of Chelsea, Tottenham and Inter Milan in the waiting room.

It was reported by Argentine paper Ole a few months ago that Brighton were keen and Calleri still remains one of the talks of the town.

Brighton are a team on the up and they feel that Calleri could help them go on to the next level.

However, the battle is set to be huge.

The teams Brighton are fighting it out with have the capital to blow Brighton out of the water.

But The Seagulls will be hoping that their project, a promise of regular football and Brighton's favourable location will make Calleri think twice before rejecting a move to the Championship promotion hopefuls.
