Brighton Could Offload Iranian Star Jahanbakhsh
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Brighton may well look to add to its squad in January but could also offload players who have not featured greatly under Potter.
Iran’s Alireza Jahanbakhsh signed for £17m from AZ Alkmaar in July 2018. He failed to score in 24 league and cup appearances for Chris Hughton's team last season and has featured just once in an EFL Cup match at Bristol Rovers under Graham Potter this campaign.
Jahanbakhsh was an unused sub for the last match against Leicester, brightonandhoveindependent.co.uk reported.
Potter has often spoke about his good attitude in training despite his limited game time. The head coach is full admiration for his work ethic but so far the striker has not been given an opportunity in the Premier League.
There was talk of utilizing him as right wing-back to provide competition for Martin Montoya, but as yet, that has not happened.
