Arsenal And Spurs Both Told To Match 25M Price Tag If They Want To Sign 24 Cap International

Brighton will not sell winger Leandro Trossard for less than £25m during the January transfer window, according to reports in the UK.

Arsenal and Tottenham are both said to be interested in signing the Belgian international, who has been capped 24 times by his country.

Spurs have even submitted an opening bid of around £12m for Trossard, but that is well below what the Seagulls are demanding for the player.

The 28-year-old has fallen out with his manager Roberto De Zerbi and, combined with the fact that the forward’s contract was originally set to expire at the end of the season, it had prompted speculation that he could be available for a low fee.

However, Brighton triggered their option to extend Trossard’s current deal for another year earlier this month, which means they are very much in control of the Belgian’s future.

At £25m, he would still be a lot cheaper than Mykhailo Mudryk, but it remains to be seen whether Arsenal will take the plunge and make an offer of their own.
