Brighton and Hove Albion have completed the signing of striker Neal Maupay from Brentford for a reported £20million.
The 22-year-old has agreed to a four-year contract with the Premier League side after impressing in the Championship.
Brighton boss Graham Potter said: “Neal is a talented striker, with good strength and pace, and he is a goalscorer. He will add an extra dimension to our existing forward options, and we are delighted to have completed the transfer.
“The club has been monitoring Neal and has been aware of his ability for some time. Separately I was also aware of his obvious ability at Swansea and came up against him in the Championship last season.
“His record in the Championship has been exceptional, with 41 goals across the last two seasons, and now his challenge is to transfer that to the Premier League.”
Maupay is Brighton’s fourth signing since last season, following Adam Webster, Leandro Trossard and Matt Clarke to the south coast.
