Reports: Scouts Punt Ex-Buccaneer For R137m Move

English Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albion have reportedly set their sights on a former Orlando Pirates midfielder, now plying his trade in France, and it has been explained why he would be a perfect fit at the Seagulls.

Marshall Munetsi parted ways with Pirates in 2019 and joined French Ligue 1 outfit Stade de Reims, where he has impressed so far, attracting interest in one of the best leagues in the world.

Even though life got off to a rocky start at Pirates as he was loaned out to Baroka in his first season at the Soweto giants, the Zimbabwean defender-cum-midfielder did enough in his last two campaigns at Pirates as he caught the attention of Reims, who signed him in 2019.

Now shinning in France, Munetsi is on the radar of Brighton as the club looks to replace the recently departed midfielder Bissouma, and Reims are said to be willing to sell him for £7 million (R137 million).

According to English publication the Daily Mail, “Brighton's analysts are understood to have reported favourably along with scouts,” with Munetsi “under consideration”.

“Munetsi's figures, notably on interceptions and defensive duels won in games, put him ahead of the likes Aurelien Tchouameni who joined Real Madrid from Monaco earlier this month, and Boubacar Kamara who left Marseille for Aston Villa,” reported the Daily Mail.
