Danish Superliga club Lyngby are struggling financially as their parent company, Hellerup Finans, looks set to fold.
In the summer, Lyngby and Brighton had talks over a forming a professional partnership, according to Ekstra Bladet. But in light of Lyngby's financial woes, talks have accelerated and Brighton could now become co-owners of a club running a serious risk of liquidation.
However, should Brighton wish to make the purchase, they would have to take on Lyngby's debts which amount to around £800,000.
Should the deal go through, the two clubs could enjoy mutual gains on the field; Brighton having their pick of Lyngby's best young talents, with the Danish club able to take on the Premier League club's youngsters for valuable first-team experience.
