Leandro Trossard wants to leave Brighton after a fall-out with manager, Roberto De Zerbi and it seems like they might quite like the idea of him moving on, too.

As a result, he has been offered to Arsenal although there is no indication that the club wish to take up this offer.

Arsenal did try and sign Trossard before he signed for Brighton.

Speaking in November last year, his agent Josy Comhair said, “I had several conversations with Arsenal.

“They came to Belgium four times. I’ll give you a note: most players would have chosen Arsenal.

“But what would have happened if Leandro didn’t get to play? Then there is only one way out: to take a step back. People don’t realise what that does in someone’s head. I know Leandro: bench him three times and he goes wild.

“So, we turned it around: if he does well at Brighton, he doesn’t have to back down, he can take a step forward. Didn’t we get it right?”

Trossard has scored nine and assisted three in 23 games this season but was left out of Brighton’s squad for their 3-0 win over Liverpool after being was benched for their 4-1 win over Everton in the previous league game.

The 28-year-old winger is currently valued at €30m, although with a contract that expires next summer and as a player Brighton seem to want rid of, it seems unlikely they will demand that much.

Trossard’s contract was due to expire this summer but Brighton took took the option to extend it for a further year at the start of this month.

Brighton paid €15.56m for Trossard in the summer of 2019.
