Brighton journalist shares how much Arsenal are going to have pay to sign Leandro Trossard

Arsenal must pay around £30 million to sign Leandro Trossard from Brighton.

Fabrizio Romano has tweeted that talks are underway between the Gunners and the Seagulls for the Belgian international, who has fallen out with manager Roberto de Zerbi.

And journalist Charlie Haffenden has claimed that Brighton will not let Trossard go on the cheap, despite his contract situation.

Arsenal missed out on Myhailo Mudryk, who has joined Chelsea, and now need to look to alternative forward options before the end of the month.

Journalist shares how much Arsenal need to pay to sign Trossard

Trossard has six months left on his current Brighton contract, but there is also an option to trigger a year’s extra extension.

Despite his current situation with the manager, that would provide a boost to his transfer value amid interest from Arsenal.

That rift with De Zerbi could be resolved, so it is not a case of a relationship ruptured beyond repair, according to the Brighton expert journalist.

Trossard may not be as exciting as Mudryk, but he is proven in the Premier League and has shown signs he is ready for a big move.

At the age of 28, he is a different age profile to the signings Arsenal have been going for under Mikel Arteta, but he is hardly over the hill.

The fact he has fallen out with Brighton’s relatively new manager is perhaps a concern, but the Gunners will do their due diligence over the personalities of any player they sign.
