Brighton star Leandro Trossard agrees Arsenal transfer as Mikel Arteta closes in on major January signing
Brighton star Leandro Trossard has agreed personal terms with Arsenal as the Gunners move on from the Mykhailo Mudryk blow and prepare to bolster Mikel Arteta’s squad before the transfer deadline.
Arteta is keen to strengthen his squad at the Emirates as he looks to guide Arsenal to a first league title since 2004.
Arsenal expected to sign Mudryk – preparing an £80m move for the Ukraine international – but saw London rivals Chelsea hijack the deal and bring him to Stamford Bridge instead.
Since the transfer blow, Arsenal have looked at alternative signings and been heavily linked with Barcelona winger Raphinha.
Trossard has also emerged as a target and is now heading to the Premier League leaders according to Twiter.com/FabrizioRomano/status/1616003243808788482?s=20&t=eEGHAFke-lwHp-EGpKpvxw”>Fabrizio Romano.
