Brighton have taken many critics by surprise with an encouraging start to this season's Premier League campaign. Victories against the likes of West Brom and Swansea as well as a convincing away win at the hands of West Ham have given them hope that they will avoid a relegation battle and retain their top-flight status in the process.

However in recent matches, they have gradually started to slip down the table. With only 14 goals netted this term, the workload on players like Glenn Murray and Tomer Hemed is too significant to be relied upon on a regular basis.

The former has scored five already this season, which is impressive, but he needs more support in the final third.

Plenty of supporters are hoping that Chris Hughton signs a bonafide goalscorer who they can rely upon to finish chances and potentially reach double figures before the season's complete in May. They tried their utmost in the summer, right up until the transfer deadline, to no avail.

This time, they need to try again and hope they make the right acquisition that will boost them up the table and help ease their safety fears in the process.
