English Brighton, which is currently headed by ex-Shakhtar coach Roberto De Zerbi, is not negotiating with the Donetsk club for the transfer of center back Mykola Matvienko. This is reported by insider Fabrizio Romano.
Despite rumors of the Seagulls’ continued interest in the defender, there are currently no specific fresh talks between the clubs. Therefore, to say that the deal is close to completion is incorrect.
The last negotiations between Brighton and Shakhtar regarding Matvienko were held in January of this year. Then the British offered 16 million euros for the center back, but were refused.
Earlier it was reported that Matvienko is one of Brighton’s transfer targets for the summer window.
