The Seagulls splashed the cash to complete a £18m move for Zambia international Enock Mwepu yesterday, and it will be fascinating to see how the former RB Salzburg man fares in the Premier League, after thriving in the Austrian top tier for four title-winning seasons.
Discussing his new player, Brighton boss Graham Potter said: “We're delighted to be able to welcome Enock to the club and are looking forward to working with him.
“He has a great deal of experience for somebody of his age, including Champions League and international football.
