Albion have entered talks over a deal for £13 million Reims striker Boulaye Dia, according to reports.

Le10 Sport claim that Brighton have entered discussions over a deal for a man they have been tracking since January, with the Frenchman expected to cost £13 million.

Dia scored seven times in 24 games as Reims confounded the critics to finish sixth in the French top-flight in 2019/20.

The Red and Whites will now be playing Europa League football next season, marking their first continental foray since all the way back in 1963.

And Reims will be praying that the chance to make history at the Stade August-Delaune will be enough to convince their star man to resist the lure of the Premier League.
