Graham Potter's Brighton have impressed this season but have just lacked that all-important cutting edge

Albion secured their top flight status yesterday for a fifth consecutive season following Fulham's 2-0 loss to Burnley.

Sheffield United, West Brom and Fulham are the teams relegated to the Championship.

Graham Potter's men have delivered some good performances and many feel they just lack a top class striker and a ruthless streak to finish off their clever approach pay.

The 23-year-old academy graduate has been excellent this season after replacing Maty Ryan as the No 1. Called-up to the recent Spain squad and will look to improve further next campaign. A real success story for Brighton

Here we include some of Albion's top performers and add two high-profile signings who are both high on the fans wanted list.

Scroll down and click through to see who makes our strongest starting XI for next season, with two shrewd signings.

Made the step up to the Premier League look easy. A classy operator and will be even better next season for the experience. Brighton's main challenge will be keeping him at the Amex Stadium with Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs all said to be keen.
Brighton's best player this season. Consistently high level performances in defence and has also chipped in with four PL goals this season. Seems to get better each year and England omission remains a mystery.
Performing well for Brighton this season until an ankle injury scuppered his progress. Started the last three matches and looks to be getting back to his best. White, Dunk and Webster is a very strong defensive line-up and has the potential to improve further
The hamstring injury stopped the flying wing backs in his tracks. Will hope to come back stronger and fitter next season. Offers genuine pace and a real threat going forward. Tough on Joel Veltman but Lamptey gets the nod
Brighton will hope to keep their Mali international who has been a key man in their midfield. Arsenal, Real Madrid, Liverpool, man City and Man U have all been linked but it will take serious money for Brighton to part with Bissouma.
An absolute class act when he's fully fit. Had his injury problems and currently struggling with a calf issue just about gets in ahead of Pascal Gross, who has also been excellent this season
Such a danger in attacking areas and can assist and provide a goal threat. Has hit the woodwork more than any other player this season and should have had more goals to game. Not as consistent as he would have liked and next season will be a big one for him and his career
Adds balance to the team and Brighton have missed the left wing back since his injury. Faces competition next season from young Polish player Karbownik but March remains Brighton's best player on the left
Rarely gets a look in at Chelsea and a name that consistently crops up on Brighton fans' wish list. A proven goalscorer and would add a real focal point to Albion's attack. Far too good to wasted on the bench and needs to be playing regularly in the PL. Would be a great signing for Albion.
Worked well with Potter at Swansea and would fit nicely to Brighton's style of play. Struggled for game time at Old Trafford and is also wanted by Leeds. James would be an excellent acquisition for Brighton and would also work well alongside Abraham. What a double swoop James and Abraham would be from Brighton!
