Leandro Trossard is having a medical at Brighton ahead of an £18m move from Genk.
He travelled to the UK from Brussels on Tuesday morning after opting for Brighton over other interested clubs.
Trossard said to VTM: "It was a bit of uncertainty the last weeks where I would start the season. Today, I'm supposed to do the medical tests and if I pass them well, I'll sign.
"I have a very good feeling about it [Brighton]. I have had a personal talk with the coach. It's someone with offensive intentions and he persuaded me with his plans for Brighton for next season in the Premier League.
"He assured me that I can play an important role in his plans. I need to get minutes, and I think that what I can get from Brighton is good, and it can make me evolve well."
Trossard is likely to be Graham Potter's second signing following the arrival of Matt Clarke from Portsmouth.
