Player’s representative believes a move to Arsenal could happen

It is being reported today that Genk forward Leandro Trossard, could be on his way to Arsenal this summer.

German outfit Wolfsburg are also interested in the Belgium international who was a member of Roberto Martinez World Cup squad in 2018.

According to Goal, the 24-year-old’s agent Josy Comhair has confirmed that there is no deal agreed yet but a move to Arsenal would be joining a club at the highest level.

He told Het Nieuwsblad: “There is no agreement with any club yet. But I think that Germany is a beautiful country for him. You can take it one step higher via Germany.

“Because with Arsenal you are immediately at the highest level and you can almost only go down. But yes, it can also be Arsenal.”

A fee in the region of €20 million is being mooted by Comhair mainly due to the sale prices of players he considers in the same category.

“If you sell [Wilfred] Ndidi [to Leicester City] for €17 million, you can sell Leandro for 20, you know. For less than €20 million you don’t have Leandro,” he added.

In the same report, it claims that we have been monitoring the player since last year.

Trossard, who has scored 12 goals in 28 league matches, would not be a marquee signing but considering our transfer budget and wage restrictions he would certainly have a role to play within the squad and that is where we are at right now, looking for players that can fit in nicely and perform to a certain standard at an affordable price and by all accounts Trossard is such a player.

Considering the comments from the agent this particular rumour does carry some credibility but then again, agents are notorious for ramping up their clients in order to engineer a move.

  1. Looks very quick and good with both feet, better with his right. Got a strong long shot. Looks more like an inside forward than a winger.

    1. We need more goalscoring wingers/ wide forwards as what other top clubs have

  2. I didn’t see fancy tricks nor excellent dribbles on his YouTube highlights. His stats are good in this season, but I’m worried he could be another one season wonder like Lucas Perez

    He is a right-footed LW and we already have Iwobi for that position. Iwobi has not produced enough goals and assists as a winger yet, but he could be rotated with Nelson

    I’d prefer Arsenal to get a left-footed RW like Pepe, Malcom, Neres, Thauvin or Chukwueze, because we don’t have a right-sided attacker that can cut inside and interchange his position with the LW’s

  3. Difficult to judge his level, i watched some of his videos and he looks good but not special. Honestly, we should give nelson and saka a chance instead since we don’t want to spend on well established players.

  4. We all know what we need and it’s not another forward! Wtf
    We better hold onto laca if reports are true and Barca along with other clubs are out to get him.
    We all see his displeasure when he’s substituted or doesn’t start. All the money we have should go to defence or midfield.
    I would love to see nkeitha get a run in the team also…

  5. Auba torreira of Lagos

    Excellent player compared to all we have both in the team and on loan for that position. I’ve followed him for a while now and I’m personally impressed. I hope we do get him. I’d also like us to get Malcom rather than Pepe and then an ATM with a high level of technique and eye for goals.

  6. Not that Trossard is the final answer but having him and Iwobi fighting for LW would make the situation alot more pleasurable.

    I can think of a few centre midfielders qe should also consider and 2 defenders. That wont win us the league, but that’s not our objective right now. Right now it is to see if we can obtain 3rd spot

  7. Off Topic, So far Alan Smith has defended every one if the atrocious tackle the Tottenham players have mad. It’s a pity he doesn’t treat us so kindly.

    1. Can’t believe Tottenham are going to get a draw from this game. means even if we win our two games a draw next week keeps Tottenham above us. Oops cancel that Bournemouth’s got a last minute goal. LOL

      1. Now’s there’s a tear up. JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE LOSING

  8. Let’s hope the first team to win with nine men aren’t Tottenham, because if they do, we cannot finish above them…

  9. 2 red cards for the spuds 😁😁😁 beautiful!!
    Come on Bournemouth

    1. Feeling sorry for pawson, was clearly told to go easy on spurs with the 2 bournemouth penalties not given and dier no red card but not even him can overlook the ridiculous actions of son and foyth.

    2. Bournemouth are really a joke if they can’t take down 9 man Spurs at home!!

      1. They just have, 1-0 Bournemouth

        1. And boy am I glad I spoke too soon! 😂 Always great to see the trash getting taken out!

          1. Hell yeah!! Thank you Nathan Ake FOYS…
            Dele Alli is such a tw@t

          2. If we win both our games, Brighton at home and Burnley away we’re just looking for one slip up in three games from Chelsea (2) and Tottenham (1). I know it’s a big if but you can’t have to many easier games to finish on. We’ve had so many chances to nail down Champions League football maybe this time we’ll take one.

  10. Let’s call them Mournemouth, they love killing teams’ top four hopes 😉

    1. Problem is Chelsix will now finish 3rd and it’s the spuds that will deny us the champions league ☹

      1. That’s your own opinion

      2. QD, you don’t think Watford or Leicester can get a point against Chelsea, mmm don’t know

        1. What a week coming up. This time next week we could be in a Europa League final and have a Champions League placed nailed down.

          1. Happy days, Kenny 👍

          2. Hope so Sue
