Brighton have received a £15m offer from Serie A side Salernitana for striker Neal Maupay.

Graham Potter is hesitant to lose the 25-year-old out of contract next summer as he has been Brighton’s top scorer in each of the last three seasons.

The 25-year-old striker scored eight Premier League goals last season but is now nearing an exit from the Seagulls after strengthening their attacking department in the summer.

The Frenchman will face competition from Danny Welbeck, Leandro Trossard, Denis Undav and Julio Enciso next season which could lead to his departure.

He has a record 27 goals in 109 appearances since signing from Brentford for £14million in 2019.

Salernitana narrowly avoided relegation last season after picking up 18 points in their last 15 matches to stay in the top flight.

Meanwhile, QPR have completed the signing of Brighton midfielder Taylor Richards on season loan.

The Seagulls are also in talks to sign Austria midfielder Florian Grillitsch, 26, who is a free agent after leaving Hoffenheim.

Grillitsch spent five seasons in the Bundesliga with Hoffenheim and can play both in midfield and in defence.

The Austrian has already been linked with a move to Arsenal, but Brighton are set to snap up the versatile star from under the Gunners’ nose and bring him to the Amex Stadium.
