“Maybe January”- Tottenham Hotspur urged to take a look at Belgian star shining in Premier Leag


Tottenham Hotspur urged to make January move for Brighton’s Leandro Trossard

Ex-Aston Villa centre-forward Gabriel Agbonlahor has claimed that Brighton & Hove Albion’s Leandro Trossard could shine at Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, or Arsenal.

The 27-year-old Belgian attacker has started to shine this season and has been a menace for the Seagulls up front. He has scored seven goals and provided two assists in 12 games across competitions this campaign.

Among his victims are Manchester City, Chelsea, and Liverpool. He scored a hat-trick against the Reds at Anfield in a 3-3 draw – which was Roberto De Zerbi’s first game in charge as Brighton’s manager.

Trossard seems to be a late bloomer but for him, this form has come at the right time. With the FIFA World Cup in Qatar just a couple of weeks away, there is a very strong chance that he makes manager Roberto Martinez’s 26-man squad.

That could increase his valuation if he does have a good tournament with the Red Devils. Agbonlahor thinks that a January move could be on the cards and Spurs could be a team that can give him the platform to shine.

He exclusively told talkSPORT:

“He’s improved so much. He’s adding goals as well, he’s a threat. He’s going to attract a lot of clubs over Europe – Premier League clubs will look at him as well.”

“I think he could do a job at Arsenal, Chelsea, Spurs. So I think now he’s playing like he is, maybe January, if Brighton can get a bit of money for him, they might look to sell him in January.”

Richarlison, Lucas Moura, and Dejan Kulusevski’s injury issues coupled with the departure of Steven Bergwijn have served as reminders that one can never seem to have enough depth in attack.

Trossard could also be a very enticing buy if he doesn’t renew his contract at the Amex, which expires at the end of the season (Transfermarkt). He can play down the left flank, as an attacking midfielder, a second striker, and as a centre-forward if need be. Pursuing him would be a no-brainer on Spurs’ part.
