As reported by Charlie Parker-Turner, Leandro Trossard’s agent has released a statement to Belgian media surrounding tension between the player and Brighton boss Roberto De Zerbi. The relationship appears to have broken down following an incident that took place after the World Cup, which has spiralled into Trossard being told to train separately from the main squad.
The statement concludes with the players agent stating that a transfer during the January window would be beneficial for both sides. Trossard has been linked with many clubs, especially the likes of Chelsea in the Premier League.
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, seeing the end of head coach Roberto Martinez.
