Marco Silva says Neal Maupay was ‘very close’ to signing for Fulham.
At various stages this summer he appeared ready to join Salernitana, Nottingham Forest and Fulham.
Silva, whose side face Albion on Tuesday, said: “It’s true that we were linked.
“He was really close to coming. But I think he’s going to another club.”
Silva remains hopeful his club can still sign up to four new players as he tries to build on a solid start to life in the Premier League.
However, it is unclear if anyone will be on board to confront the seagulls.
He said: “We need four players.
“When the players come in they have to show their quality, they have to show that they are better options.”
