Brighton and Southampton are reportedly vying with Mainz for the signature of teenage Anderlecht winger Francis Amuzu.

The Ghana-born 19-year-old is a Belgian Under-21 international and has been in talks with the Brussels club to extend his contract, which now has less than one year to run.

Het Laatste Nieuws reports that he could become the latest gem from Anderlecht’s academy, which has produced the likes of Vincent Kompany, Romelu Lukaku, Youri Tielemans and Leander Dendoncker, to make the move to England.

Brighton and Southampton are said to be interested, but so are Bundesliga club Mainz.

Amuzu’s agents have been angling for a major salary increase from Anderlecht so the story could end there if the Brussels club meet his demands.
