It has been claimed that Arsenal are now in talks with Brighton over a transfer deal for Leandro Trossard

Mikel Arteta is easily regarded as one of the finest young managers in the Premier League and has been tipped to manage one of the big clubs – but no-one could have imagined the start he would have to this season.

But the Spaniard knows that he needs to add to his squad over the course of the transfer window – and has identified a number of players that he feels could improve the side

And that has led to constant speculation in the media that Trossard is a player that the Premier League giants are very much interested in signing.

Arsenal were recently given the green light to make a move for the Belgian – who is a player that many Premier League clubs are eyeing up.

talkSPORT claimed that Brighton are prepared to grant Trossard his wish and let him leave in the January window, but only if an interested club stumps up £25millon.

Now – reports on the Sky Sports website have claimed that Arsenal have entered talks over a possible deal after agreeing to pay the asking price for the attacker

The news comes after His agency has also revealed just a few days ago that Trossard does not intend to renew his Seagulls contract and will now look to leave Brighton.

A statement from Leandro Trossard’s agent Josy Comhair read:

“Before Leandro left for Qatar, it was Brighton’s intention to extend Leandro his contract , this did not happen as parties did not reach an agreement. Leandro has also indicated he is ready for his next step.

“After the WC there was an altercation at training between Leandro and another player over an inanity. Since then, the trainer has not spoken to Leandro, which is obviously not conducive to the atmosphere, as well as performance-wise.

“Leandro still was a first eleven player against Southampton and Arsenal but against Everton he was on the bench. In the 5 substitutions that took place then, he was also not among them and this without any explanation.

“In the run-up to the match against Middlesbrough for the FA cup, Leandro had already reported calf problems twice. This was the reason he stopped training. This was in consultation with the medical staff.

“Through the physical trainer Leandro learned that he had to train separately. Last Monday the trainer then grounded leandro in the group and indicated that he did not want to see him anymore. A trainer who has not communicated directly with his player for 4 weeks is truly incomprehensible.

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

“It is therefore important that Brighton cooperate THIS mercato with a potential transfer , which is beneficial for both parties.”
