Brighton Facing Striker Crisis After Tau Exit

Bafana star Tau, who highlighted during pre-season, was subsequently offered to Egyptian monsters Al Ahly while Viktor Gyökeres joined Coventry and Andi Zeqiri close by Florin Andone withdrew borrowed to Augsburg and Cadiz. 


Brighton supervisor Graham Potter began the 2021/22 mission with no less than seven senior advances available to him yet essentially managed his crew before the end of the exchange window last week Wednesday. 


The Seagulls' business in the market implied the club looked shy of a striker heading into the homegrown season as just Aaron Connolly, Neal Maupay and Danny Welbeck stayed as the perceived forward alternatives in the crew. 


With no new striker got to supplant the outbound group of four, the circumstance currently seems to have raised at the Amex Stadium after Aaron Connolly was harmed while on global obligation with the Republic of Ireland this previous week. 


No timescale has been put on the 21-year-old's recuperation yet any length of nonappearance will see Brighton head into this present end of the week's match, and conceivably those past, with just Maupay and Welbeck to approach front and center. 


Between them, the team scored 14 objectives in 70 appearances across all contests last season and Potter could well wish that he had held Tau's administrations for another season given his side's battles before objective. 


The previous Mamelodi Sundowns star was limited to only six appearances for the club last season yet scored his first objective in an agreeable experience against Luton Town in the development to the Premier League's season. 


It at last ended up being a bogus sunrise for the 2017/18 PSL Golden Boot victor, in any case, as he finished a get-together with Pitso Mosimane only weeks after the fact by finishing a €1.80m (R30m) move to the supreme African heroes.
