EPL side Brighton agree to sign Dwamena

Dwamena scored in FC Zurich’s opening game in the Swiss league

FC Zurich and Brighton & Hove Albion have agreed terms to sign star striker Raphael Dwamena.

Brighton had an £8m bid for Dwamena rejected with reports saying FC Zurich wanted £13.7m.

The completion of the transfer is subject to a work permit being granted and international clearance being provided.

The newly-promoted side have suffered back-to-back defeats in the Premier League against Manchester City and Leicester City respectively, with the Seagulls failing to score a goal in either match.

The rise of Dwamena is amazing as the boy has come good and scoring goals for fun.

The 21-year-old made his debut for Ghana as recently as June with two goals being scored in his first three outings for the Black Stars.

A statement read: “Brighton & Hove Albion can confirm that the club has reached agreement with FC Zurich for the permanent transfer of Ghanaian international, Raphael Dwamena, subject to work permit and international clearance.

“The 21-year-old striker has also agreed personal terms with the club and is now awaiting clearance to travel to the UK for his medical.”

He will be hoping things get sorted out quickly when Brighton & Hove Albion face Watford in the Premier League on August 26.
