Brighton boss Chris Hughton may bid for Newcastle outcast Aleksandar Mitrovic when the January transfer window comes.
The Seagulls have already sent scouts to watch Mitrovic in action during Serbia’s 3-2 loss to Austria on Friday.
Rafael Benitez ran out of patience with the 23-year-old after he was hit with a three-match ban for elbowing Manuel Lanzini from West Ham in August.
Benitez then left Mitrovic from their game against Liverpool which ended in a draw 1-1.
Newcastle are also looking to bolster their frontline when the New Year transfer window comes after they failed to move their target players during the summer.
