Transfer news: Brighton star Anthony Knockaert having medical at Fulham

Brighton winger Anthony Knockaert is reportedly on the verge of completing a move to Championship club Fulham.

Sky Sports News claims that the Frenchman is having a medical with the Cottagers.

Knockaert could be about to end his three-year stay at Brighton

It is understood both Brighton and Fulham have agreed a price for Knockaert, believed to be in the region of £15million.

He will not be involved in the Seagulls’ pre-season match tomorrow, which is actually against Scott Parker’s men at Aldershot.

Fulham, who were relegated from the top flight last season, are anxious to recruit wingers this summer following the exits of Ryan Babel and Andre Schurrle.

They are also expected to lose teenager Ryan Sessegnon, who has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham.

Knockaert has scored five goals in 63 appearances for Albion.

He has proved himself in the second tier having been a central part of Brighton’s promotion to the Premier League during the 2016/17 season.

He also scooped the Championship Player of the Year award in the same season.
