Genk captain Leandro Trossard has hinted that he could leave this summer amid interest from Arsenal and Everton. As reported by The Mirror, Trossard said: “Sunday’s game against Standard Liege might be my last one in a Genk shirt.”
Trossard has been linked with Arsenal and Everton in recent weeks. According to The Express via HITC Sport, Everton are confident of beating Arsenal to the signing of Trossard.
The 24-year-old has been in top form for Genk this season. He has scored 22 goals and 11 assists in 47 appearances for the Belgian top-flight side this season.
Trossard operates as a winger, predominantly from the left flank. According to The Mirror, he would cost Arsenal or Everton around £20m to land.
This could be a risk worth taking for either side. Both teams are eyeing attacking reinforcements for their respective goals next season.
Arsenal want a versatile attacker to replace Danny Welbeck with Trossard fitting the bill. Meanwhile, Everton could sign Trossard to compete with the likes of Richarlison, Bernard and Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Trossard could be about to leave Genk after 120 games, 39 goals and 21 assists for the Jupiler League team. After hinting at an exit, a move to the Premier League could well be on the cards.
