Brighton winger linked with London duo

Brighton winger Leandro Trossard is being linked with moves to both Chelsea and Arsenal.

Trossard scored a hat-trick at Anfield on Saturday in Roberto De Zerbi’s first match in charge of the club, bringing his total for the season to five goals in seven Premier League starts, with another two assists to his name.

Since signing from Genk in 2019, he has scored 23 goals in 111 appearances for the South Coast side, and helped establish them as a Premier League fixture under former boss Graham Potter.

He, of course, has now moved on to Chelsea, and it was perhaps just a matter of time before speculation began that he could join him in West London.

The Gunners are also looking to strengthen their squad, and, with his ability to play in a variety of positions – wing back, and attacking midfield as well as on the wing – he offers just the sort of versatility that Mikel Arteta values in a player.

Trossard is out of contract at the end of the season and has refused to commit himself to his future, indicating that it depends on many factors, including which clubs might come in for him.

For their part, Brighton might consider cashing in a player that they bought for £13.5 million and use the money, as they have done in the past, to reinvest in the squad.
