Lamptey has been outstanding under Graham Potter since arriving at the Amex Stadium from Chelsea in January.
The attacking full-back has scored once and provided three assists in 11 top-flight appearances this season.
And his domestic exploits earned him a starting debut for England's Under-21 side in September during a 2–1 away victory over Austria.
Betfair Spokesperson, Sam Rosbottom said: "Brighton star Tariq Lamptey has been reportedly catching the eye of a number of big clubs with his impressive performances.
"It's only a matter of time before he signs for one of Europe's top clubs.
"Looking at who could sign him, Arsenal are the 11/4 favourites in the betting market at 11/4, while Tottenham are 7/1 and Manchester City are 6/1.
"A move abroad could also be on the cards, with German Champions, Bayern Munich 8/1 to sign him."
