Brighton have made a bid to sign Newcastle striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, according to Sky sources.
West Brom are another Premier League club interested in him. Sky Sports News understands West Brom want to sign a striker in the January window, but any move is dependant on funds which would be raised from the potential sale of defender Jonny Evans.
Mitrovic, 23, has been out for over a month with a back injury and has not started a Premier League game this season.
