Arsenal sign Leandro Trossard from Brighton for £21m plus add-ons

Arsenals have announced the signing of Leandro Trossard from Brighton & Hove Albion for a fee of around £27 million. The 28-year-old winger has signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with the Gunners, with the option of a further year. Mikel Arteta has been eager to add new players to bolster their attacking options. After missing out on Mykhailo Mudryk, who joined Chelsea from Shakhtar Donetsk, the Spaniard moved quickly to secure the services of Trossard.

He is expected to be eligible to make his Arsenal debut against Manchester United on Super Sunday, 22nd January 2023. Trossard has been an integral part of Brighton’s success this season, having scored seven goals and providing three assists in the opening months of the campaign, including a hat-trick at Anfield in November.

The deal is a significant coup for Arteta, who hopes that the capture of Trossard will help the Gunners climb up the Premier League table and push for European football. It remains to be seen how Trossard will fit into Arteta’s plans, but the Spaniard will be hoping that the new signing can immediately impact and help Arsenal in their bid to climb up the table. With the addition of Trossard, Arsenal now has the firepower to compete with the best in the league, and the signing could be just the boost they need to revive their season.
