Brighton and Hove Albion have an exciting season ahead of them and signing Danny Welbeck could prove effective.

Brighton and Hove Albion made a massive statement with the signing of Leandro Trossard from Belgian side Genk earlier this transfer window. The 24-year-old will add more quality to a Seagulls side that will be under Graham Potter's management next season. 

Potter's system will be completely different from what Brighton fans were used to watching when the club was managed by Chris Hughton, and this alone could solve plenty of problems that they faced in the second half of last season's Premier League


Potter's attacking style could bring the best out of former club-record signing Alireza Jahanbakhsh and him, along with Trossard on the other wing, could form a really exciting attack for the Seagulls. However, Brighton need a new striker who will fit into Potter's system and Danny Welbeck could prove to be a brilliant signing if they made a move.

Glenn Murray is in the twilight of his career while Florin Andone has struggled to adjust to the fast-paced game in the Premier League, netting just three times in his debut campaign.

Welbeck would bring a different dimension to Brighton's attack and his versatility of playing anywhere across the front three would be hugely beneficial for the Seagulls.

Welbeck's tireless work rate up front, combined with his ability to link up with his fellow attackers, would help Brighton open up a number of defences. The former Arsenal man is also a good enough presence both in and outside the box which would be hugely beneficial for the Seagulls in attack. 

The 28-year-old's experience in the Premier League would allow him to hit the ground running and, for free, Brighton should be all over his case, offering him a deal before another club snaps him up in the coming weeks.
