Brighton and Hove Albion have had an offer rejected for RB Leipzig midfielder Amadou Haidara.
The German club do not want to sell in this window due to the difficulty of signing a replacement now.
The 24-year-old midfielder also has a clause in his contract that he can leave in the summer, and it is anticipated there could be more interest from Champions League clubs in the summer.
Brighton’s interest could ease their stance on the availability of Moises Caicedo, who has attracted interest from Chelsea.
The Ecuadorian midfielder has been outstanding this season to help the Seagulls move into contention for a place in Europe next season.
Meanwhile, Liverpool and Manchester United have looked at Haidara in the past, but any revived interest is only likely to come at the end of the season.
The Mali international would be open to a move to Brighton now but respects Leipzig’s decision as they lie second in the Bundesliga just four points behind Bayern Munich.
There is some chance at ending the German champions’ attempt at an 11th successive title, so Leipzig do not want to allow Haidara to go without an adequate replacement.
