Brighton are hoping to land Nketiah, 22, for around £20million.

The striker has found it hard to crack the first team with Arsenal but is young enough to still establish himself in the Premier League.

Nketiah made 17 Prem appearances for the Gunners last term, scoring twice.

He also spent the second half of the 2019-20 campaign on loan at Leeds, appearing 17 times in the Championship as they won the title.

Brighton have come into some cash recently after selling England defender Ben White to Nketiah's current employers Arsenal for £50m.

The Premier League club have already signed midfielder Enock Mwepu from Red Bull Salzburg this transfer window.

Brighton have also handed a new five-year contract to former Bristol City defender Adam Webster.

Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira is also a fan of Nketiah - but the price may be too high for him and the Eagles are reluctant to go into an auction.

Vieira has been busy in the transfer window, signing promising Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher on loan for the season.

The new manager is also interested in Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson, who featured just twice in the Premier league last term.

And Palace are considering a loan move for RB Leipzig star Ademola Lookman, who spent last season at relegated Fulham.
