Darren Bent tweets his immediate reaction to Arsenal trying to sign Leandro Trossard

Arsenal have been linked with a swoop for winger Leandro Trossard from Brighton and Darren Bent has had his say.

Fabrizio Romano has tweeted that Trossard has agreed personal terms with the Gunners over a long term contract.

Talks are seemingly very advanced and the deal could well move very quickly, with Arsenal looking to move on swiftly from missing out on Myhailo Mudryk.

Mikel Arteta needs at least one attacker through the door, having also not got Joao Felix through the door this month either.

Trossard may not be as exciting a name as Mudryk or Felix, but he is proven in the Premier League, and that is a point Bent made on Twitter.

The Belgian has just months remaining on his Brighton contract, although the Seagulls have an option to extend it for another year.

That would boost their asking price, but not to the levels being demanded for Mudryk throughout extensive negotiations.

Mikel Arteta and Edu have earned the trust of Arsenal fans during their rebuild of the club, where transfer policy has been key.

Sometimes, they have been forced to move onto second choice targets – as per the Athletic – and they have worked out exceptionally well in some cases.

That looks to be the case here again, and if Trossard can come in and hit the ground running, helping Arsenal to win the title, it will look like money well spent.
