Brighton rejected for Babacar

Fiorentina reportedly turned down a €13m offer from Brighton and Hove Albion for Khouma Babacar.

The Senegalese striker is pushed down the pecking order by the arrival of Giovanni Simeone and Cyril Thereau, especially as the Viola don’t have European football this season.

However, Sky Sport Italia claim Fiorentina rejected a proposal worth €13m from Brighton for Babacar.

The player is also determined to stay in Florence and fight for his chance.

Aged 24, Babacar came up through the Fiorentina youth academy and last season scored 14 goals in 31 competitive games.
