The Independent is reporting that Arsenal have been offered Brighton and Hove Albion’s Belgian star Leandro Trossard as an alternative to Mykhaylo Mudryk.
After Chelsea confirmed the signing of Mudryk a few hours ago, it’s been reported that Arsenal are looking at a number of targets including Barcelona’s Raphinha.
And now The Independent is reporting that Trossard is another name that has been proposed to The Gunners.
It’s unclear from the article whether he’s been offered by the club or by the player’s agent, but there have been several reports this past week that Trossard is looking for a move and was dropped from the Brighton squad by manager Roberto De Zerbi for their Premier League clash with Liverpool on Saturday. The exclusion didn’t stop Brighton’s momentum, however, as they swept aside Liverpool by a scoreline of 3-0.
Despite his current situation being less than ideal, Leandro Trossard is still a top class forward and has shown that particularly over the last couple of seasons.
As clubs and agents digest the news that Arsenal are now looking for a new attacking forward after missing out on Mudryk, there are bound to be plenty of players being presented as options to Mikel Arteta’s side. And it seems that Trossard is one of the names at the forefront of that list.
Trossard has been on fire for Brighton this season, scoring 7 goals and getting 2 assists in 16 Premier League matches for the South Coast side. With proven Premier League experience, The Gunners may not go too wrong with looking at Trossard as an option for the squad as the team challenge for the Premier League title this season.
