Brighton star Scherpen wanted by Vitesse in summer loan with several clubs keen

BRIGHTON’S giant Dutch keeper Kjell Scherpen is wanted on loan by Vitesse Arnhem.

Scherpen, 22, made the full Holland squad in the summer and his stock is high in his homeland, where Vitesse would like him to return.

Belgian side Oostende had 6ft 9in Scherpen last term and the Seagulls may let him go out again for game time.

They also have lots of loan requests for another reserve keeper, Carl Rushworth, mainly from League One.

The Seagulls may also have to fight off interest in Marc Cucurella this summer following his impressive campaign last year.

Last week SunSport revealed that Manchester City are set to step up their interest in Cucurella.

And the Spaniard added further fuel to that speculation by liking an Instagram post which hinted at City making a move.

If Cucurella does leave Brighton will be in need of a new defender and Graham Potter has eyed Chelsea youngster Levi Colwill.

The Wales international impressed at Huddersfield last season and is attracting attention from several Premier League clubs.

Leicester, Crystal Palace, and Nottingham Forest are also interested in taking Colwill on a permanent transfer.


But Brighton have funds to spare following the £25million sale of Yves Bissouma to Tottenham.
