A look at the Swedish striker's early career.

Viktor Gyokeres signed for Brighton & Hove Albion from IF Brommapojkarna in September 2017, but didn't join up with his team-mates until January 2018.

The Swedish forward signed a two-and-a-half-year contract with the Seagulls, but stayed with his former club to win Superettan (second tier) and gain promotion to Sweden's top division.

Gyokeres was the joint-top scorer in the 2017 UEFA European Under-19 Championship, scoring three goals in three appearances for his country.

The forward made an impressive start to his Albion career, scoring 11 goals in 12 appearances, as the Seagulls won promotion to the top flight of under-23 football.

Gyokeres fired home on his third appearance in the Premier League 2 Division 1, while also being handed his first-team debut in the Carabao Cup against Southampton at the Amex Stadium.
