A former Orlando Pirates midfielder has caught the eye of an English Premier League side.

Brighton have enquired about highly rated Reims midfielder Marshall Munetsi as Graham Potter looks to replace Yves Bissouma, who recently joined Tottenham.

The Zimbabwe international, who turned 26 on Wednesday, has had his stock rise consistently since moving from the Buccaneers in 2019.

According to reports in England, Brighton’s analysts and scouts are understood to have reported favourably when recommending a midfielder to fill the void left by Malian ace Bissouma.

Munetsi, who scored four goals in 22 games last season after coming back from injury, only signed a new contract last month but Reims could be willing to sell for around £7million.

Munetsi played for the Buccaneers between 2017 and 2019 before being snapped up by Reims who play in Ligue 1.
