London: Ghanaian international striker Raphael Dwamena is to sign for Premier League newboys Brighton and Hove Albion from Swiss outfit FC Zurich, the English club announced on Monday.

The 21-year-old — who is valued at 8 million pounds (Dh37.83 million; 8.7m euros, $10.3m) although Brighton did not reveal the transfer fee — leaves Switzerland after just eight months at FC Zurich where he sparkled, scoring 12 goals last season as they regained their place in the Swiss top flight.

Dwamena has also scored twice in five games so far this season in the Swiss Super League and has netted two goals in just three international appearances. (AFP)
