The Seagulls continue to lead when it comes to selling stars and successfully replacing them

Teams like Brighton must be more intelligent than their Premier League rivals. They are unable to match many other teams’ transfer expenditures or pay structures, but they have nonetheless developed very effective models, as seen by their standings in the standings and player sales records.

Brighton made it to the UEFA Europa League while spending significantly less this season than other teams who spent much more. They are always changing and looking towards the future. In case they need to sell somebody for the right price, the hiring staff are going to have players in mind for every position.

Let’s take a look at the remarkable profit they made this season from selling their top players.

6. Leandro Trossard: Arsenal (€24m)

The Gunners paid an initial £20 million upfront and a further £7 million in add-ons. Mikel Arteta and Arsenal think they completed the registration paperwork in time for Trossard. The 28-year-old committed to a four-and-a-half-year contract with a one-year extension option. The Belgian was a brilliant player for the Seagulls, but they also acquired Mitoma as a substitute, who has been a fantastic replacement.

5. Yves Bissouma: Tottenham (€29.2m)

Yves Bissouma joined Tottenham in a deal worth up to £35 million; Tottenham paid an initial £25 million with £10 million in add-ons pre-arranged with Brighton. The 25-year-old’s contract with Brighton only had one year left, so the Seagulls were sensible to sell the midfielder rather than risk losing him for nothing the following campaign.

4. Alexis Mac Allister: Liverpool (€42m)

The star of Qatar 2022 and international from Argentina moves to Anfield for what is believed to be an initial cost of roughly £35 million. It may increase to £55m, according to experts. Argentinos Juniors’ Mac Allister was acquired, and he spent four years at Brighton, having two loan stints back in his native country. Before the World Cup, Liverpool recognised him as a top target, and the club values his versatility as well.

3. Ben White: Arsenal (€58.5m)

Ben White, an English defender, moved to Arsenal for £50 million from Brighton. The centre-back signed a five-year contract with the option of an additional year’s extension, making him the Gunners’ third first-team acquisition. He took No. 4 at the club and signed a five-year contract with a one-year extension option.

Under Graham Potter, the centre-back played for Brighton in 39 games in every competition and impressed in the Premier League.

2. Marc Cucurella: Chelsea (€65.3m)

In a deal for up to £62 million, Marc Cucurella’s transfer from Brighton to Chelsea was officially announced. For the left-back, Chelsea agreed to pay a fixed £55 million plus a further £7 million in add-ons.

Cucurella committed to a deal that would last until 2028. Manchester City also expressed interest in the 24-year-old, but they were unwilling to pay the asking fee. Cucurella had a difficult first season at Chelsea, but will look to bounce back next season.

1. Moises Caicedo: Chelsea (€133.7m)

Chelsea finally signed Moises Caicedo in the summer of 2023 for a British-record fee. The Ecuadorian midfielder gained a lot of interest from Liverpool, but Caicedo had other plans and joined the Blues. The 22-year-old joined the Seagulls in 2021. He made 45 Premier League appearances and scored twice. Caicedo also provided two assists in the English top division.
