The reporter now claims Arsenal is eyeing winger Tottenham have a ‘genuine’ interest in signing

Arsenal is keeping tabs on Brighton and Hove Albion winger Leandro Trossard as they consider a move for the Tottenham Hotspur target.

That’s according to talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook, who claims that Arsenal is ‘monitoring developments’ over Trossard.

Crook states that Tottenham’s interest in signing Trossard is ‘genuine’ having been heavily linked with a move to Spurs in recent days.

Arsenal is at the very least taking a look at Trossard’s situation, maybe hoping to secure themselves a bargain.

Crook adds that Chelsea and Trossard’s former boss Graham Potter is yet to show an interest in signing the Belgian.

Arsenal has been chasing a deal for Shakhtar Donetsk winger Mykhaylo Mudryk but would be smart to have alternatives in mind.

Trossard has enjoyed a strong season to date and really made headlines when he scored a hat-trick against Liverpool at Anfield.

The 28-year-old is in danger of ruining his Brighton legacy though.

Trossard has been left out of Brighton’s last two games with boss Roberto De Zerbi keen to see more effort and application from the winger.

It’s starting to feel like Trossard wants a move away from Brighton, hence so many rumors about his future in recent days.

Tottenham is looking for a versatile attacker and with Trossard’s contract now expiring in 2024, they may believe they can secure a bargain.

The links to Arsenal are a surprise though.

Trossard doesn’t really fit Arsenal’s age profile and is a very different threat to top target Mudryk.

Additionally, CBS Sports reporter Ben Jacobs suggested in December that Trossard being on Arsenal’s radar was ‘false’ and that his agent was just offering him around.

It would be quite the U-turn for Arsenal to now go in for Trossard but maybe Arteta thinks that he can make an instant impact in the Premier League title race.

Whether it’s Arsenal, Tottenham, or somebody else, Trossard is surely leaving Brighton in 2023.
