As reported by Fabrizio Romano, Brighton and Arsenal have entered into negotiations for the transfer of Leandro Trossard to the Premier League leaders. It appears that personal terms have already been agreed, so it is down to the two clubs to agree on a fee. Arsenal changed their target to Trossard after missing out on Mykhailo Mudryk to Chelsea.
Trossard looks set to leave Brighton having fallen out with head coach Roberto De Zerbi, with the players agent confirming that both club and player want to part during the January transfer window.
The former Genk midfielder joined Brighton in the summer of 2019 for around 15 million euros. This has been one of the Belgian internationals strongest seasons, scoring seven times and providing three assists in 16 league matches for the Seagulls.
Trossard was also a member of the Belgian World Cup squad which was eliminated during the group stages in Qatar, seeing the end of head coach Roberto Martinez. The Spanish head coach has since been appointed to lead Portugal.
