Brighton face competition from Portuguese giants Benfica for Almeria striker Darwin Nunez.

Nunez has one cap for Uruguay and scored on his international debut against Peru in 2019.

Brighton have a strong relationship with Almeria, having previously signed former strikers Leonardo Ulloa and Tomer Hemed from the Spanish club.
