Albion are preparing to study  Euro 2020 for talent.

The Seagulls will be represented at as many games as possible at the tournament, which gets under way tonight.

Summer trading has been quiet in the Premier League so far, with the exception of Emiliano Buendia’s move from Norwich to Aston Villa.

Albion’s activity is likely to more outgoing than incoming as they look to trim the wage bill while retaining squad strength.

They have yet to receive any inquiries for star men such as Yves Bissouma and Ben White.

But they will add to the squad if the right deal comes along.

Travel restrictions have hindered all clubs in terms of getting to games overseas.

Ticket availability for scouts will be very limited during the Euros but Albion will be keeping as close an eye as possible on the action.

Signing a player purely on the strength of a successful tournament can be ill-advised.

But these Euros could be particularly useful for clubs such as Albion.

A well-placed contact told The Argus: “The market is incredibly quiet at the moment.

“There hasn’t been as much hands-on scouting of foreign players because scouts at clubs haven’t been able to get out for 15- 16 months.

“Clubs can get access to games online from anywhere in the world but it’s not the same as seeing in person.”

White’s value will have risen after his call into the England squad.

But Albion are unwilling to put a value on him and have no intention or wish to sell.

England are preparing to face Croatia at Wembley on Sunday.

The tournament gets under way in Rome this evening as Italy take on Turkey.


Leandro Trossard could be the first Albion player in action with Belgium taking on Russia tomorrow evening.
