You've really got to give credit to the Brighton board for always being able to scout young talent. This week, in a bit of a shock ahead of the summer transfer window deadline, the English Premier League side has brought in a youngster with a bright future from La Liga.

We're talking about Barcelona's Ansu Fati. Fati hasn't quite been able to get things going with the Catalonian giants, but he's going to look to further his development with Brighton. This is a monster get for the rising EPL club.

Fati will join an exciting Brighton squad, who already feature plenty of attacking options. It's important to remember that this is just a loan move and it's not a full signing. However, this feels like a good opportunity for Fati.

The Premier League is considered the best league in the world. Fati will be ready to try and live up to the hype for his new team.
