Tony Bloom, the owner of Brighton, has announced ambitious plans for the future of his team, as reported by Alex Crook.

It has been revealed that he intends to conduct a robust summer transfer campaign and elevate the club to the highest European echelons. Tony Bloom believes that the team is capable of competing in the Champions League.

It's worth noting that the 44-year-old Robert De Zerbi hasn't given any indication of leaving Brighton, and discussions have been held with De Zerbi about the possibility of extending his contract, which currently runs until the summer of 2026. The decision to retain De Zerbi is supported by the fact that Brighton doesn't feel financial pressure to sell any of their star players.

Incidentally, in the 2016/17 season, the team secured promotion to the top English division, where Brighton had not competed for over 30 years. In the 2022/23 season, the "Seagulls" finished sixth in the Premier League, amassing 62 points, marking the club's best-ever performance in the top tier of English football. On May 21, 2023, under the guidance of Roberto De Zerbi, Brighton reached European competition for the first time in their history.
