German club Werder Bremen have ‘put out feelers’ for Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Pascal Groß regarding a transfer this month. That’s according to Deichstube, who says the 2.Bundesliga club ‘senses its chance’ to get the midfielder and ‘make a move’ for his signature.

Gross is yet to match that form, although he remains an important part of Graham Potter’s plans. The 30-year-old has featured in 16 games in all competitions so far this term.
