Feyenoord could solve their issues at winger this summer as they eye up a move for Alireza Jahanbakhsh.
The latest reports in England suggest that Feyenoord are in advanced talks to bring Brighton winger Alireza Jahanbakhsh.
The Iran international was signed by Brighton in July 2018 from AZ for a fee of 19 million euros. The 27-year-old has a contract until 2023 with the club.
The winger has banged in two goals and provided two assists in 25 matches last term on all fronts.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Iran. His record for Iran is impressive. Jahanbakhsh has scored five goals in 44 matches for Iran at senior level.
Alireza Jahanbakhsh is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Brighton this summer and the list of suitors in the Iran international continues to grow.
He is widely regarded as a key transfer target for Feyenoord this summer.
Dick Advocaat is a firm fan of Brighton winger and Feyenoord could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
Feyenoord are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The Iran international will offer the Feyenoord boss the freedom to be more flexible with his formations, tactics and team selections.
According to the report, “Feyenoord are in contact with Brighton for Alireza Jahanbakhsh. Sky Sports says Jahanbakhsh is considering a move back to the Netherlands with Feyenoord. The Eredivisie club want to sign the former AZ Alkmaar player as a replacement for Steven Berghuis, who is expected to join Ajax, and Iran international Jahanbakhsh is expected to make a decision in the coming days. Jahanbakhsh, signed by Brighton for £17m in 2018, wants to play more regularly and has been frustrated by a lack of consistent starts during his spell on the south coast.”

A big money bid from Feyenoord could tempt Brighton into selling their prized asset.
Good signing for Feyenoord?
A wide player of Jahanbakhsh’s technical quality will undeniably be a decent coup for Feyenoord if they can get him for a fair price.
The 27-year-old has all the skillset required to be a success story at Feyenoord. Therefore, it makes sense for Dick Advocaat to step up his attempts to bring the Iran winger to Eredivisie side.
If Advocaat sees him as the right man for his side, Feyenoord should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
