Brighton have signed Neal Maupay from Brentford on a four-year deal.

The 22-year-old passed a medical on Monday before completing his £20m move to Brighton. He scored 41 goals for Brentford in the Championship over two seasons since joining from St. Etienne in the summer of 2017.

Brighton manager 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.”

Aston Villa, West Ham and Sheffield United also had interest in Maupay but it is Brighton who matched his valuation.

Maupay won the 2018/19 EFL Player of the Year at the London Football Awards.
