Brighton set to break transfer record for Izquierdo
Brighton have agreed terms over a club-record deal for Colombian winger Jose Izquierdo from Club Brugge.
It has been a busy summer for Chris Hughton, who has already signed seven players during the transfer window:
Midfielder Davy Propper from PSV Eindhoven for a club record fee of over £10m, midfielder Pascal Gross and defender Markus Suttner both from German side Ingolstadt, 19-year-old defender Josh Kerr from Celtic, goalkeeper Matthew Ryan from Sevilla, defender Mathias Normann from Norwegian side FK Bodo/Glimt and forward Izzy Brown on loan from Chelsea.
Brighton have also agreed terms over a club-record deal for Colombian winger Jose Izquierdo from Club Brugge.
Sky Sports News reported early on Thursday that the newly-promoted Seagulls were closing on the 25-year-old.
It is understood Brighton representatives met with the player on Wednesday night in a restaurant in Belgium to finalise the transfer, believed to be worth an initial £13.5m, potentially rising to £16m.
