Arsenal Is Interested In Signing A £43,000-Per-Week Star Who Has Already Rejected Them Once
Arsenal News Transfer: As reported by Voetbal Belgie, the Gunners are interested in signing Brighton star Leandro Trossard this summer. The Belgian winger had rejected a move to Arsenal way back in 2019.
Trossard moved to Brighton from Genk as he thought its too early for him to make a call on Arsenal. The 27-year-old has since been an impressive player for the Seagulls as he has been completely transformed by manager Graham Potter.
Mikel Arteta currently has Saka as the lone winger. With Lacazette’s exit, they can’t even modify their attack. Nketiah is sure to start as a striker (at least until Arsenal signs Gabriel Jesus) but he needs support from the flanks.
Leandro Trossard had a spectacular 2021/22 campaign in which he made 32 appearances from Brighton. The winger scored eight goals and provided three assists for his team. He has been earning just £ 43,000-a-week wages which could excite the Arsenal board even more.
Trossard has been used by Graham Potter as a deep attacker along with Marc Cucurella and Tariq Lamptey. This combination has produced a lot of goals as they have been electric in counter-attacks.
Arsenal News Transfer: Would Leandro Trossard Bring Something Different To An Already Stacked Arsenal Attack?
The answer is yes, he is more than capable to do it for Arsenal this time. After rejecting a move in 2019, he could make a call if Arsenal requests a transfer.
Recently for Belgium, Trossard scored twice against Poland. Trossard is known for carrying the ball deep and progressing further ahead up the pitch. His crosses are quite accurate and he has been able to sneak in spaces and score goals from tight angles.
Trossard’s ability to convert chances during counter-attacks is another strong point. He can add a lot of worth to Mikel Arteta’s young attacking squad. However, Arsenal needs to offer a wage higher than £80,000 to lure him to the Emirates Stadium.
