Seagulls sign the 21-year-old on a four-year contract from Lausanne-Sport for an undisclosed fee

Brighton & Hove Albion have completed the signing of forward Andi Zeqiri from Swiss side Lausanne-Sport.

The 21-year-old joins for an undisclosed fee and has agreed a four-year contract with the Seagulls.

"He's a player we have been aware of for some time; we know his qualities and what he can bring to us," head coach Graham Potter told the club's official website.

"He has played at a good level from a young age and has good experience in Switzerland and Italy for a player of his age. We well help him settle here in Brighton, and we are looking forward to welcoming him into the group and working with him."

Zeqiri scored 22 times in 37 appearances in all competitions in 2019/20 as Lausanne were promoted as champions to the top-tier of Swiss football, while he has netted six goals in seven appearances for Switzerland Under-21s.

Brighton's eighth summer signing spent a season on loan at the Juventus academy in 2016/17 and will add to Potter's forward options.

Up next for the Seagulls is a trip to Goodison Park to face Everton on Saturday.
