New Albion frontman Neal Maupay says he is looking forward to striking up a rapport with Glenn Murray.

The 22-year-old hitman has signed a four-year contract with the Seagulls after completing his expected move from Championship side Brentford.

The Frenchman has been a long-term Albion target and joins for an undisclosed fee after scoring 41 goals in 95 games for the Bees.

He is now eager to link up with his new team-mates, including Albion’s veteran frontman Murray who has topped the club’s goals chart for the past two Premier League campaigns.

Maupay said: “There are strikers here with Premier League experience, so I am looking forward to working with them and seeing how we can play together.

“Glenn Murray is one of them. I’m young so I can learn a lot of things from him, so I will try to talk and work with him on and off the pitch to see how he can help me to be ready for this next step.”

Maupay also stressed there is more to his game than just goals.

He added: “First of all, I am a goalscorer that wants to score goals, but I am a player who gives 100% on the pitch in every single game.

“I like to hold the ball up, and time my runs into the box to try and score more goals.

“For us as a team, it is good to have several players in the same position, as it will bring some competition between us and push us to work harder and become even better.”

Head coach Graham Potter revealed he has been an admirer of Maupay for some time.

Former Swansea boss Potter said: “Neal is a talented striker, with good strength and pace, and he is a goalscorer.

“He will add an extra dimension to our existing forward options, and we are delighted to have completed the transfer.

“The club has been monitoring Neal and has been aware of his ability for some time. Separately I was also aware of his obvious ability at Swansea, and came up against him in the Championship last season.

“His record in the Championship has been exceptional, with 41 goals across the last two seasons, and now his challenge is to transfer that to the Premier League.”

Maupay’s arrival signals the end of Albion’s immediate interest in Leganes forward Youssef En-Nesyri.
