Brighton’s boss,drops a stunning statement as he reacts to Brighton’s interest in Argentine 17-year-old forward…

Brighton and Hove Albion are reportedly expressing interest in the burgeoning talent of Argentine prospect Agustín Ruberto, currently making waves at the U17 World Cup. According to reports from Marca, Brighton has already made inquiries about the 17-year-old forward, who has been a standout performer for Argentina’s U17 team.

Ruberto, who is currently joint top scorer in the tournament with an impressive five goals, is being closely observed by clubs, including Brighton. His notable performances alongside teammate Claudio Echeverri, drawing comparisons to Lionel Messi, have sparked discussions about a potential transfer from River Plate.

While only 12 days separate Ruberto and Echeverri, Ruberto’s exceptional World Cup campaign has positioned him as a sought-after prospect, contributing to 60% of Argentina’s total goals in the tournament. Brighton’s history of successful signings from South America, exemplified by the likes of Alexis MacAllister, adds credibility to their interest in Ruberto.

Considering Ruberto’s standout performances, the question remains whether River Plate would be willing to part with the talented youngster. The possibility of a debut in the first team for the 17-year-old seems plausible, given his stellar showing on the international stage.

Brighton’s adeptness in acquiring and nurturing talent from South America, as demonstrated by the success stories like MacAllister, further solidifies their reputation in scouting and developing promising players. As Brighton sets its sights on Ruberto, the club appears poised to continue its strategic approach to talent acquisition from the South American region.
