Journalist Alex Crook has revealed that while Tottenham hold a genuine interest in Leandro Trossard, it would take a sizable bid to prise the winger away from Brighton during the current transfer window.

Updates regarding Tottenham’s pursuit of Trossard have come thick and fast over the last few days.  90 min summarised the state of affairs in detail in their report on the matter on Tuesday, stating that the Belgian is not the top target for the Lilywhites but the club are being kept informed about the player’s situation.

The publication added that although the Seagulls had taken up the option to extend the Trossard’s contract until 2024, he is the player who is most likely to leave the Amex Stadium this month among the first-team regulars.

Crook has now also suggested that Roberto De Zerbi’s men are open to cashing in on the former Genk man, but added that it would take a ‘decent bid’ from Spurs to clinch the deal.

The journalist told GiveMeSport regarding Tottenham’s pursuit of Trossard: “I think Brighton are always willing to let players go if they think they’re getting value for money.

“They showed that with Marc Cucurella, Ben White and Yves Bissouma. I’m told Tottenham’s interest is genuine, this is more than just paper talk but they haven’t made a bid yet.

“What Brighton have done, quite crucially, is they have protected themselves because they have triggered the one-year option in his contract. He is contracted until the summer of 2024, so I think it takes a decent bid to get him away.”

Spurs Web Opinion

We know based on the way Paratici operates that Tottenham are likely to have held talks regarding deals for several attackers over recent days or weeks. So, Trossard might be a fallback option in case a deal for one of the North London club’s top attacking targets does not materialise.
