Ghanaian striker Ibrahim Osman has officially joined English Premier League team Brighton & Hove Albion from Danish club FC Nordsjaeland.
The Seagulls and the Danish club are rumoured to have reached an agreement, and this is the formal confirmation.
West Ham United had their eye on 19-year-old Ibrahim Osman, but the transaction eventually fell through.
David Weir, Technical Director at Brighton, stated, “We’re excited about the chance to collaborate with Ibrahim.”
“Although he is a promising young player, we must allow him the time and space to devote himself entirely to Nordsjaelland, where he is having a strong season.
“We will bring him into our environment where he will get the time and support he needs to settle here in England once the current season is over and he has had a chance to rest during the summer.”
The 19-year-old will play for Brighton for the duration of the five-year contract, which ends in 2029.
In January 2023, Ibrahim, a graduate of Ghana’s Right to Dream Academy, joined the Danish side.
Since then, in 29 games for the team, he has five assists and four goals.
Ibrahim’s acquisition is rumoured to have happened in a manner akin to that of Ivorian Simon Adingra, who also played for Right to Dream in Ghana.
