Philip Otele: Brighton interested in winger rejecting Cardiff City

Posted : 27 March 2024

Brighton & Hove Albion reportedly have their sights set on Philip Otele, a 24-year-old Nigerian winger who once trained with Arsenal's youth team.

Otele's impressive performances in Romania's Liga 1 with CFR Cluj have caught the attention of the Seagulls, according to The Evening Standard.

Although Cardiff City showed interest in signing Otele just fifteen days ago, he declined the opportunity to move to the English Championship.

Patrick Deboys, Cardiff City's Head of Recruitment, was in contact with Otele's representatives during the January transfer window.

After failing to make a breakthrough at Arsenal's academy, Otele took a unique path, gaining experience in lower English leagues before finding success abroad.

Despite this unconventional journey, Otele has excelled, boasting 13 goals and six assists in 31 league matches for CFR Cluj.

Brighton's recruitment team sees Otele as a hidden gem in European football, believing he has the potential to thrive in the Premier League.

CFR Cluj values Otele at around four million euros, a price that aligns with Brighton's prudent transfer approach.

However, Brighton plans to proceed cautiously with Otele's potential signing, considering loaning him out immediately to Union Saint-Gilloise in Belgium.
