Arsenal have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Brighton & Hove Albion attacker Leandro Trossard as an alternative to Mykhailo Mudryk.

According to the Evening Standard, the Gunners have been approached with a chance to sign the Belgian international having missed out on Mudryk to London rivals Chelsea, with Tottenham also interested in Trossard this January.

Trossard is a name who many Arsenal fans will be familiar with, with the attacker currently enjoying his best Premier League season to date with seven goals in the English top-flight. However, the forward could now leave Brighton this January.

As per the Evening Standard, Trossard wants to leave the south coast side with the winger falling out with manager Roberto De Zerbi, with Arsenal now being offered the chance to sign the attacker whose contract with Brighton is already due to expire in six months time.

Indeed, Trossard would be quite a smart signing if Arsenal can reach an agreeable transfer fee with Brighton for the 28-year-old attacker. However, given the type of players Mikel Arteta and Edu Gaspar have been recruiting in the last 18 months, the Seagulls star might not be as good as option as first thought.

Trossard is enjoying a fantastic season and should rightfully be playing for a bigger club based on his Brighton form. However, Arsenal signing the 28-year-old would be seen by some supporters as reverting back to the old transfer strategy that infamously didn’t work under Unai Emery and Arsene Wenger’s latter years.

Based on Arteta’s pursuit for Mudryk, a younger winger is seemingly on Arsenal’s agenda. And with Trossard only enjoying one real good season of Premier League football, there are better options out there in the market for the Gunners to target than the Brighton star.
