Potter: Gross form helps Brighton striker hunt

Brighton manager Graham Potter says Pascal Gross' form eases his desire to sign a “20-goal striker” after the 31-year-old scored his third goal in four games during the Seagulls' 1-0 win over Leeds.

“That’s part of the challenge,” said Potter, who on Friday allowed last season’s top scorer Neal Maupay to join Everton. “Rather than wait for one individual, can others pop up for goals?

“Pascal is probably performing at the level of his career; certainly his level since I’ve been working with him.

“If other people can score and take the weight off this 20-goal striker that we’re going to get, then that would help us.

“As I pointed out the other day, there are only two of those in the Premier League (last season: Son Heung-min and Mohamed Salah), so it’s not so simple.”
