According to sources at the Daily Mail, any opportunity for Brighton winger Leandro Trossard to join Tottenham Hotspur this month is not likely to come to fruition until later in the January transfer window.
Trossard is enjoying a fantastic season for Brighton so far, with seven goals and three assists to his name in the Premier League this term (Transfermarkt).
With his contract set to expire at the end of this season (Transfermarkt), Trossard is not short of admirers at the moment. In fact, it has emerged that Tottenham recently had a verbal offer rejected for the player by his current club (FootballInsider).
Spurs actually spoke to Trossard back in 2018 about a potential move, according to his agent Josy Comhair in a report from The Sun.
Many pundits have posited the idea of Trossard joining Spurs recently, too. Gabby Agbonlahor told talkSport Brighton may look to cash in on the player in January and suggested he would be a good fit at Spurs.
Now, it sounds like if Trossard is going to move to North London, we may have to wait until later in the transfer window to see that happen.
Brighton face something of a dilemma, it seems. They can either cling on to Trossard now and risk losing him for free later, or try to cash in and get as much as they can for the player this year. Brighton reportedly have the option to extend his deal by an extra 12 months (Sun).
The report claims Tottenham’s interest in Trossard has “accelerated over the past few days.” While Brighton are well aware of the interest, sources suggest a move is “not imminent” and will be more likely to happen at the back end of the January transfer window.
Spurs Web Opinion
I really like Leandro Trossard. He feels like the exact kind of player that would be able to make that step up and be a valuable asset in our attacking rotation. With his contract running out, he wouldn’t command a huge fee either, so if we can get this done I’d be very pleased.
