Tottenham transfer news: Chris Sutton suggests Leandro Trossard is leaving Brighton

Chris Sutton has now suggested that Tottenham Hotspur target Leandro Trossard will be leaving Brighton this month.

In his column for the Daily Mail, Sutton was giving team talks to every Premier League club.

While talking about Brighton, he said the team ‘may need to get used to’ Trossard not being around.

The Belgian international was absent from Brighton’s fantastic 3-0 win over Liverpool at the weekend.

His absence has only increased speculation surrounding his future at the club.

A number of Premier League sides have been credited with interest including Tottenham.

The Athletic reported that Tottenham made a bid to sign Trossard this month, but it was turned down.

The £15m forward does look set to leave the Amex, but where he’ll end up isn’t known yet.

Tottenham may face competition from their north London rivals after they missed out on Mykhaylo Mudryk.

Trossard will be leaving Brighton – Sutton

Writing for the Daily Mail about Brighton, Sutton said: “Lads, you will notice Leandro Trossard isn’t here for this team talk. You may need to get used to that.

“But you beat Everton 4-1 and Liverpool 3-0 without Trossard. You’ll be fine.

“But Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo, you are going nowhere because Brighton are European contenders now. You are needed.”

Incidentally, Sutton suggested that he would drop Hugo Lloris for Fraser Forster when talking about Spurs.

Trossard would certainly fit the mould as a creative outlet that can play a variety of roles.

Happiest drifting off the left-hand side, Trossard has also played as a false nine and in a deeper role.

He could even be converted to a wing-back by Conte, a position he’s been utilised in on occasions.

Trossard does appear to be leaving Brighton, and could possibly trade one of the league’s most exciting projects for one of its most precarious.

Conte’s future at Spurs doesn’t appear certain, while discussions are also ongoing surrounding its ownership.

The opportunity to play in the Champions League and one of Europe’s best stadiums might be hard to turn down.
