​Stuttgart striker Gonzalez stuns Brighton by snubbing them for Fiorentina

Brighton may have failed in their attempt to secure Stuttgart striker Nicolas Gonzalez.

The Guardian reported on Wednesday that Brighton had agreed a fee with the German club for the forward, which would have been a club record deal.

However, Sky in Germany claims the player has rejected the Premier League club.

Gonzalez is instead sealing a move to Italian side Fiorentina.

The Italians are likely to pay a fee rising to £23 million, which is less than what Brighton were prepared to pay.
