Brighton have set an asking price of £ 38million for the key transfer target, Arsenal face Spurs for an advantageous midfielder
The Seagulls are unbeaten in their last four games against the Clarets and will look to extend that start with another positive result this time around.
Speaking after their final friendly of the pre-season campaign, a 2-0 loss to Liga side Getafe, Brighton boss Graham Potter was in an optimistic mood despite the result and said: ” It was a good tough game against a team that were really well organized and made it difficult for us, which is what you expect from the last game before the season.
“The first half was not as good as we would like to be. It is to their credit. They were in good shape. In the second half, we played better. We were more threatening for extended periods of the game.
“We have things to do and things to work on. We can analyze everything and prepare for Burnley. We will try to use the players we have.
He continued, “Last year, because we had Ben (White), Lewis (Dunk) and Adam (Webster), it made sense to play a back three because of the strength of those players.
“Obviously we lost Ben, but we have other options. We had 80 minutes of Lewis and Adam so it was really positive. As always, we will try to use the players we have to be the most effective.
