The Fulham striker, who became a Seagulls legend when he fired the club to back-to-back titles with 70 goals in 119 league games before joining Tottenham in 2003, made the claim in the Albion-themed book 'Match Of My Life'.
"I am loving being at Fulham - largely because I am playing every week again," he said.
"But one day I would love to come back to Brighton and play for the Albion again. I always tell my mates that I will go back there at some point in the future.
"Those two seasons are right up there with everything else that I have subsequently achieved in football.
"It was phenomenal and as far as memories go, I don't think that can be beaten."
