Brighton are set to sign Charlton defender Ezri Konsa in an £8m deal, according to reports.

Konsa has been the subject of interest from Arsenal, Everton and Brighton since breaking into the Addicks first-team in 2016.

He was denied a move to the Premier League last summer after the club rejected a bid of £3.5m, which was believed to have come from Everton.

But The Sun says he will get his big money transfer to the top-flight by joining Brighton before the transfer window closes on Wednesday.

Konsa, who is a product of Charlton’s renowned academy, has made 31 appearances for Karl Robinson’s promotion-chasing side this season.

The 20-year-old has seen former Addicks trainees Joe Gomez and Ademola Lookman move to the Premier League - and he is set to follow them.

Konsa will be competing with Lewis Dunk, Shane Duffy and Connor Goldson for a starting berth if the move goes through.

But Robinson has made it clear that if the England Under-20 international was to leave, he would want him loaned back for the rest of the campaign. 

It remains to be seen how much money will be invested into Charlton’s squad from the potential Konsa sale by wantaway owner Roland Duchatelet.
