Chelsea and Arsenal are reportedly leading the race to sign Leandro Trossard in the January transfer window


Chelsea and Arsenal are reportedly leading the race to sign Leanardo Trossard in the January transfer window. Brighton are also open to selling for the right price.

This is after his disagreement on the training ground with Roberto De Zerbi. Hence, his agent is actively offering his client to all the clubs in the Premier League.


According to reports, Chelsea are showing interest in signing Leandro Trossard in the January transfer window. Arsenal are also showing interest after missing out on Mykhaylo Mudryk to the Blues. Hence, the Gunners will hope that they can win the race for Trossard. However, the Blues also have the advantage of Graham Potter on their side. Trossard has played his best football at Brighton under the management of Graham Potter. Hence, personal are terms are surely not the problem.

At the moment, the main priority for Chelsea is to sign a midfielder. Hence, Trossard will have to wait for them to first sign a midfielder. Brighton are at the moment open to selling the Belgian forward. This is because of his feud with manager Robert De Zerbi. The manager has already said that he can respectfully return to training. However, the agent has made it clear that his client wants to leave the Seagulls in the January transfer window. Brighton are asking for a fee of over 20 million.


According to reports, Trossard is one of the names on the shortlist for Arsenal. This is because Chelsea beat them to the signing of Mykhaylo Mudryk. Hence, with the price of only potentially 25 million, they can sign a bargain in the form of Trossard. The Blues also have the same chance. However, he will not get regular game time for them. Hence, Arsenal looks a good option for the Belgian international in the January transfer window.

Newcastle United are also monitoring his situation. This is because of Trossard’s brilliant relationship with Dan Ashworth. Hence, the Magpies are also keeping an eye on the situation. It is also because Chris Wood is close to a move to Nottingham Forest on loan. Hence, they will need a player who can play across all three forward positions. Hence, Chelsea and Arsenal will also have to be aware of the tough competition of high-flying Magpies this season.

The agent of Trossard has also offered him to other top clubs in Europe. However, they have not yet made a decision to make him the priority signing in the January transfer window. Therefore, there is a chance that Trossard will get a move in the next summer transfer window. Although, there is also a chance that in the coming days, we see a movement from Chelsea or Arsenal.
