Coach Albert Stuivenberg has been urging Arsenal to sign 'fantastic' player

Arsenal coach Albert Stuivenberg knows Leandro Trossard well and has worked with him before.

Stuivenberg coached Trossard when he was the manager of Genk in 2017, leading the club to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Europa League.

Genk were knocked out by Celta Vigo in the last eight, who went on to lose to eventual winners Manchester United in the semi-finals.

The Athletic report that there have been concerns about Trossard’s attitude after his falling out with Roberto De Zerbi, which has led to his fairly rapid exit from Brighton.

Stuivenberg has eased concerns over Trossard

But Stuivenberg has served to play those down and ensure Arsenal are getting a player who fits in with their squad development plans.

Arsenal have made a big deal of getting the right characters into the club and ensuring Mikel Arteta can get out anyone who is not on the same page.

Trossard’s time at Brighton has largely been positive, but it has soured in recent weeks, although that does not change the fact he is a proven, successful Premier League player.

Arteta brought in Gabriel Jesus and Alex Zinchenko, two players he knows well from his time at Manchester City, during the summer.

That has helped propel Arsenal into the title race, and they are now on the verge of signing the ‘fantastic‘ Trossard soon.

It remains to be seen whether he will sign in time to face Manchester United on Sunday, but Arsenal are trying to get the deal over the line before midday today.
