Journalist Alex Crook has revealed that an unnamed overseas club have had a bid ‘rejected’ for Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Leandro Trossard.
Crook shared earlier this week that Spurs have a ‘genuine’ interest in Trossard, and Brighton and Hove Albion have protected his value by extending his contract until 2024.
The Belgium international has seemingly lost his starting place recently, and so the Seagulls could look to offload him in January if the price is right.
Taking to Twitter at Friday lunchtime , Crook has since revealed that Brighton have now ‘rejected’ an offer from an unnamed overseas club for Trossard, who is training alone after his manager Roberto De Zerbi claimed that he ‘could play better’ and that he ‘wants more’:
“Understand #BHAFC have rejected an offer from an unnamed overseas club for #THFC target Leandro Trossard. Player is training alone after De Zerbi comments he ‘could play better’ and that he ‘wants more’. Unlikely to feature v #LFC tomorrow.”
TIF thoughts on Trossard to Tottenham…
Spurs must look to take advantage of this current situation with Trossard and sign him before the window shuts at the end of the month.
Lauded as ‘unreal‘ by Rio Ferdinand, and a ‘wizard‘ by Brighton podcaster Charlie Haffenden, he was outstanding before the break for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar, with seven goals and three assists in the Premier League, including a hat-trick in a 3-3 draw against Liverpool at Anfield (Transfermarkt).
The Lilywhites have been struggling with depth in attacking areas in recent games, with no obvious forward options to come off of the bench in their last top-flight outing against Crystal Palace, and Trossard would provide a great alternative to the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, who Antonio Conte will not want to burn out.
