Arsenal are in advanced talks to sign Leandro Trossard from Brighton and have already agreed personal terms with the Belgian international over a January move to the Emirates Stadium, in line with reports. The attacker is searching for a way out of the Amex Stadium this month following a recent fallout with Seagulls boss Roberto De Zerbi and now the Gunners might be about to reply his prayers as they work on finding an agreement with the South Coast club.
Brighton recently triggered a 12-month option to increase the player’s contract meaning his deal is now attributable to expire in 2024 but still, his future looks to lie away from Albion after three-and-a-half seasons in blue and white.
Trossard is seemingly struggling to commit to De Zerbi’s project and the Seagulls could now be forced to dump the forward for the greater interest of the dressing room.
In keeping with Fabrizio Romano, talks are already at a complicated stage between the 2 clubs because the deal edges closer.
He tweeted: “Arsenal have opened talks to sign Leandro Trossard from Brighton, negotiations are advanced with official bid ready for everlasting move. Personal terms already agreed — talks will proceed to get deal done soon.”
Arsenal were recently offered Trossard by his representatives and appears they are actually willing to seize the prospect to land the 28-year-old, who has scored seven Premier League goals this season.
The Gunners were forced back to the dressing room on the weekend when Chelsea pinched their top January goal Mykhaylo Mudryk after striking an £88million take care of Shakhtar Donetsk.
But Trossard could now prove to be a cheap solution that might allow Arsenal to also put money into other areas of their squad this month should they need.
A central midfielder can be believed to be of interest while Real Valladolid right-back Ivan Fresneda can be believed to be a goal for the Gunners.
