According to the latest information from Fabrizio RomanoTariq Lamptey could leave Brighton & Hove Albion in the January transfer window.
Tariq Lamptey could leave Brighton in January
Ultimately, this revelation doesn’t come as much of a surprise considering the 22-year-old has played just one game in the Premier League this season.
As a result, it’s easy to understand why a player as young as Lamptey would be eyeing a January exit from Brighton.
Romano has also reported that a number of clubs in Europe know that the Ghana international is ready to leave Seagulls.
One of the clubs interested in the speedster is Lyon as a potential replacement for Malo Gusto, who could join Chelsea this month.
Under Graham Potter, the £42,000-a-week starlet was stunning to watch until a long-term hamstring injury sadly cut his progress.
After the youngster was gradually put back into the team, he was not in top form despite 16 league games in the starting XI.
And during Roberto De Zerbi’s reign, he has yet to start a league game.
With that in mind, you can understand why Tariq Lamptey, who has been described as “amazing” by Neil Maupay (via Ghana Web), is preparing to leave Brighton in January.
Seagulls could live to regret selling Lamptey
There’s no denying that Lamptey hasn’t been at his best for a while.
Furthermore, Brighton are one of the smartest clubs in Europe in the transfer market.
However, the diminutive right-back is a sensational talent, gifted with just about every trait one could dream of in a modern-day full-back.
While Joel Veltman has been a class this season, the question remains should the club do more to keep such a talented youngster?
Ultimately, this decision for Brighton is a payback arc for Tariq Lamptey after a potential move in January could be a reminder to side with an escape.
