“Deal’s now very advanced, waiting to fix final details and then sign documents.”

It comes after Brighton announced the club record signing of Joao Pedro from Championship side Watford.

The Seagulls have forked out just shy of £30million for the Brazilian striker, with the deal having the potential to rise to £35m.

Pedro, 21, has signed a five-year deal at The Amex and will join the club when the summer transfer window officially opens following this season.

The deal breaks Brighton’s previous club record signing of £20m paid to Bristol City in 2019 to sign defender Adam Webster and is a huge fee for Watford.

Pedro scored 11 goals and produced four assists in 35 Championship appearances this season.

Roberto De Zerbi’s side are also set to sign Liverpool midfielder James Milner on a free transfer.

Milner, 37, is out of contract at Anfield this summer and is expected to agree a one-year deal on the south coast, joining former Reds team-mate Adam Lallana at The Amex.
