Brighton are interested in Derby right-back Jayden Bogle and Portsmouth centre-half Matt Clarke, Sky Sports News understands.
The 18-year-old Bogle starred for the Rams under Frank Lampard during their unsuccessful Sky Bet Championship play-off campaign this season, while Clarke has had another excellent season in League One for Pompey.
Bogle meets several criteria for Brighton as a quick, young and home-grown prospect, but they are understood to have some concerns about his lack of experience, having made only 40 appearances in senior football so far.
Clarke, 22, is another up-and-coming player who Portsmouth may struggle to keep hold of following their unsuccessful play-off campaign, with Championship sides Leeds and Stoke also thought to be keen.
If Brighton were to sign Clarke, it is understood they will still fight to keep hold of their current centre-back pairing of Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy amid reported interest from other Premier League sides.
As well as a right-back and centre-back, a new striker is also thought to be high on Brighton's wanted list as well as a box-to-box midfielder and a winger.
