Raphael Dwamena set to undergo Brighton medicals
Ghana striker Raphael Dwamena will travel to the UK within the next 48 hours to undergo a medical ahead of his move to English Premier League side Brighton, agents close to the deal have told Ghana's leading football news outfit Ghanasoccernet.com.
Brighton has agreed terms of the move with his Swiss club FC Zurich to sign the Ghana international for an undisclosed fee.
The Seagulls had an initial £8m bid for Dwamena rejected with Ghanasoccernet.com revealing that FC Zurich wanted 15m euros (£13.7m).
The 21-year-old has also agreed with personal terms, with the move subject to a work permit and international clearance.
This comes after Ghana's leading football news outfit www.ghanasoccernet.com exclusively revealed the newly-promoted Premier League side's interest in the Ghana attacker last week.
Dwamena will travel to the UK for the medical within the next two days before the deal is sealed.
"The 21-year-old striker has also agreed with personal terms with the club and is now awaiting clearance to travel to the UK for his medical," a Brighton statement read on Monday.
Dwamena scored 30 goals in 38 games last season for Austrian club Lustenau and Zurich, who were promoted back to the Super League.
He joined Zurich from second tier Lustenau in January for just £250,000, but the Swiss outfit have been holding out for a significant seven-figure fee.
Dwamena has hit the ground running in the Super League this season with two goals in four games, both against Zurich's city rivals Grasshoppers.
He recently hit a hat-trick against minnows FC Chippis in the Swiss Cup and scored twice on his debut for Ghana in June in a 4-0 win against Ethiopia.
