Premier League new-boys Brighton are reportedly now favourites to sign Sporting Lisbon star defender
Schelotto made 22 appearances for Sporting Lisbon last season. The Argentine-born Italian spent two years in Italy with Inter Milan, but also featured on loan with Sassuolo, Parma and Chievo after failing to make a good impression with his parent club.
Brighton have also been linked with Club Brugge forward Jose Izquierdo after the Belgian side gave permission for the Seagulls to talk to him - Brighton will have to splash out £16m if they are to successfully lure Izquierdo to Falmer Stadium.
Middlesbrough and Sunderland are still keeping tabs on Schelotto. However, with the Premier League status that Brighton have, it's almost a certainty that he will favour a move to south coast of England.
