ALBION are trying to secure goalscoring back-up for Leo Ulloa.
The Argus understands the club will make a move this week to ease the burden on their Argentinian marksman.
Ulloa has scored the Seagulls’ last three goals in the Championship – including their reply in Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat by Wigan – and the last four in all competitions.
Head coach Oscar Garcia revealed afterwards he is not fully fit due to an ankle problem, raising doubts about his participation in tonight’s FA Cup fifth round replay at Hull.
Albion dominated against Wigan but Oscar was left lamenting again his team’s failure to be clinical in front of goal.
Midfielder Andrea Orlandi said: “We just need to relax. We are playing well, we are creating chances and then we don’t have to rely on Leo to score.
“We have to take more responsibility, the rest of the players, and start scoring more goals.
“For example, Dale (Stephens) had two really good chances. He was in two good positions. Some other players had chances.
“At least we had many chances and players in the right areas. Let’s see if we can add some goals from midfield or other areas and help Leo.”
