Brighton make offer for Libertad teen Julio Enciso

Brighton have made an offer for Libertad teen Julio Enciso.

The Daily Mail says Brighton have made an offer of around £4million for Paraguay international teenager Enciso.

The 17-year-old midfielder’s club, Libertad, value him around £8m as Graham Potter looks to add to his Seagulls squad for the second-half of the season.

Despite his young age, Enciso has been part of the Libertad squad for nearly three years, making his first team debut just two months after his 15th birthday in March 2019.

The following year, the midfielder then became the youngest player to ever score in the Copa Libertadores this century, before earning himself a call-up to Paraguay’s Copa America squad last summer.

At 17, Enciso was by far and away the youngest player in the tournament and made two cameo appearances for Paraguay against Bolivia and Peru – thereby becoming the fourth-youngest player to ever feature for his country.
