The Argus have claimed that there have been no major developments in Tottenham Hotspur’s pursuit of Leandro Trossard until now.

The speculation linking Trossard with a move to Tottenham has intensified over the last two days, with talkSPORT’s Alex Crook revealing on Tuesday that Brighton have taken up the option to extend the winger’s contract until 2024 amidst Spurs’ interest.

90 min also reported yesterday that the contract option had been activated by the Segualls but suggested that the Belgian international was the most likely out of all of the club’s first-team regulars to leave during the current transfer window.

The report explained that while Trossard was not Tottenham’s top target, the North London club are being kept informed by the South Coast club about the player’s situation.

The Argus have now said that Antonio Conte’s men do remain ‘keen’ on snapping up the 28-year-old but suggested that a deal is far from imminent.

The publication added that they have been informed that ‘nothing is happening’ regarding Trossard as things stand, despite Tottenham’s interest. It is asserted that Roberto De Zerbi’s side would be happy to keep their squad intact until the end of the season.

Based on the various reports over the last couple of days, it sounds like Brighton are open to selling Trossard at the right price this window but are happy to hold on to him if a suitable offer does not arrive. It does not seem like the Belgian is Tottenham’s top target either but things could perhaps change later in the window.
