FC Zurich want €15 million from Brighton for Raphael Dwamena

FC Zurich are demanding €15 million from Brighton for Ghana striker Raphael Dwamena, GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal.

The Swiss side are re holding out for €15 million but Brighton would want to pay €10 million for the services of the highly-rated striker.

The newly-promoted English Premier League side tabled the offer last week as exclusively revealed by GHANAsoccernet.com but was knocked back by the Swiss side.

GHANAsoccernet.com sources say the Swiss side will only allow the striker to leave nothing short of a €15 million.

However, the Seagulls remain interested in the Ghana international, who has seen a remarkable career rise in just six months.

Manager Chris Hughton is a key admirer of the Ghanaian, who joined FC Zurich from Red Bull Salzburg in January and scored an impressive 12 goals in 18 games.

The Swiss side bought the striker for about £250,000 just six months ago from Austria Lustenau and would have made a decent profit of £7, 750,000 if they allowed him to move.
