Newcastle more likely to sign Trossard than Tottenham - journalist

Journalist Dean Jones has told Give Me Sport that Leandro Trossard may be more likely to join Newcastle United than Tottenham Hotspur due to the level of the Magpies’ interest in the Belgian.

Trossard’s future has become a major talking point in recent days. His contract with Brighton is set to expire at the end of the season. They have, or have had, the option to extend that by a further year. And you would imagine that that would have been taken up, if it has not already.

Reports from 90min this week suggested that Trossard is the regular starter most likely to leave Brighton in this window. And Tottenham have made an enquiry for the £25 million-rated 28-year-old.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail has suggested that Trossard could be tempted to join Spurs. But it seems that a move to their Premier League rivals may be more likely.

Jones has suggested that both Newcastle and Chelsea are showing more interest, and may have a better chance of landing the Tottenham target.

“The Trossard link to Tottenham is interesting because his versatility would really suit them,” he told Give Me Sport.

“However, if he is really going to move, then I would say both Chelsea and Newcastle are also going to be in that conversation and might be more likely landing spots given their level of interest and power in this current market.”

It would be a coup for Newcastle to sign Trossard in one of the coming windows. He has been superb for Brighton since arriving in the Premier League. And he tops their goalscoring charts with seven goals this season.

But it is clearly a very exciting time to join Newcastle. Eddie Howe’s men are flying in the Premier League. And that is a sign of what is to come from the Magpies in the coming years.

Certainly, it is going to become a much more common sight to see Newcastle competing with the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea for signings.

Trossard has been ‘unreal‘ at times this season. And he could certainly make a big impact if he ends up on Tyneside.
