Tottenham expected to ask for information for Leandro Trossard soon

Tottenham Hotspur are exploring a deal to acquire the service of Brighton & Hove Albion outcast Leandro Trossard in the January transfer window.

As per journalist Alexandre Braeckman, Tottenham Hotspur will shift their attention to Leandro Trossard who had a fallout with Brighton & Hove Albion manager Roberto De Zerbi.

Trossard has been barred from first-team action as the manager reportedly was fuming about the player’s attitude. The Belgium international has been accused of leaving the training early after he was informed he would not be involved in the FA Cup encounter against Middlesbrough.

His contract will run down this summer but the club has the option to trigger a one-year extension. Trossard’s agent went public with a statement urging the club to allow the player to move in January.

“Last Monday, the manager [De Zerbi] humiliated Leandro in [the] group and indicated that he no longer wanted to see him. A manager who has not communicated directly with his player for four weeks is really incomprehensible.

“It is also the manager who has indicated several times that a transfer is the most convenient solution.

“It is therefore important that Brighton cooperates with a potential transfer during this transfer period and shows a benevolent attitude, which is beneficial to both parties.”

The 28-year-old is the Seagulls’ top scorer and has the ability to turn around games on his own. Tottenham have been looking for some inspiration for their attacking ranks. And Trossard has emerged as a target. And the interest in the Belgian international makes a world of sense.

Lucas Moura is on the verge of leaving the North Londoners, and bringing in a replacement is important. The winger is quite adept in switching positions and can play across the front three. The forward has returned to Belgium and is waiting to reach an amicable solution with the club.

Brighton’s scouting department earned plaudits as several of their players have been sold for big money, and the Belgian could be the next in line. It remains to be seen whether Brighton accepts a proposal or they choose to keep the player at the club as they are still in contention for a place in the top four.
