Werder Bremen midfielder Thomas Delaney is being watched by the club, according to Daily Mail columnist Simon Jones.

We have apparently been keeping tabs on the Danish international, along with Everton, but Brighton look to be keenest on snapping up the 26-year-old at the moment.

The Seagulls have reportedly had a £10million turned down by Bremen, with the Bundesliga side said to be holding out for £16.8m (roughly €19m).

The central midfield player would likely be a potential replacement for Mousa Dembele if the Belgian decides to leave the club in the summer.

A number of newspapers believe the 30-year-old will not be staying, with the midfielder having just 12 months to run on his current contract.

Whether Delaney would have anywhere near the required quality to replace Mousa, it is debatable.

He can play either play in a deep-lying role or further forward as a box to box player, but his three goals and six assists in 35 games suggest a player who won’t pull up any trees.
