Despite late interest from Tottenham and Liverpool, Barcelona star Ansu Fati is set to join Brighton on loan for the season.
Fati, who has struggled with injuries, is seen as a major coup for Brighton as they aim to compete with other teams in the Premier League.
Brighton has accepted the conditions outlined by Barcelona for Fati’s potential exit and is working on finalizing the deal.
The 20-year-old forward has also accepted the loan deal and will travel to Brighton on Thursday.
While Tottenham and Liverpool had considered Fati as a potential signing, Brighton has moved quickly to secure the Barcelona talent.
Fati, who was given Lionel Messi’s number 10 jersey at Barcelona, has faced injury setbacks but could play a significant role in Brighton’s Premier League and European campaigns.
