Arsenal agree a deal for Belgian sensation

Arsenal struggled to bring in players this January with Suarez being the only signing but the club looks to set announce the arrival for the next season.

Arsenal fans were left baffled when manager Unai Emery stated that the club could not make any permanent signings during the winter window. The had to settle for loan moves due to their wage constraints. However, it was expected that with the departures of Ramsey, Welbeck and a few others who were on considerable wage, normalcy would resume. If reports are to be believed, the Gunners seem to have made a move already and it is a exciting one.

Another Sven Mislintat find

Arsenal have secured the services of Leandro Trossard according to Gooner fanzine. This seems to be another gem uncovered by Sven Mislintat. The German left the North London club earlier this season but he might have handed the club a parting gift.

Belgian media outlet Sporza had also reported that a move for Genk winger Leandro Trossard to Arsenal could be a possibility. The player’s agent also talked about a possible move to London. “I contacted representatives from Arsenal and Tottenham. At Spurs, nobody wanted to confirm that Trossard is an option, but Arsenal did. They told me Leandro has a very interesting profile for them and that they’ve been following him since August.”

He stated that Arsenal are keen on the footballer and are keeping a close eye on him.“They also added it was a good choice to stay at Genk for another year. They ended the phone call with ‘They are keeping a close eye on him.”

Who is Leandro Trossard?

Leandro Trossard is a Genk academy graduate who rose to prominence on loan at Lommel SK in 2013. Primarily a winger, the Belgian is also capable of playing in central midfield or even as a second striker, though his preferred position is on the left flank. The youngster has racked up 17 goals and 8 assists in 29 appearances this season.

Trossard has risen with similar success through the ranks for his country. He started in the Under-16 ranks in 2010 and has risen through the divisions since. However, Trossard has appeared just once for his country at Under-21 level. But this hasn’t deterred Premier League clubs like Tottenham and Southampton.

Author’s Take

Should Trossard arrive at Arsenal, the winger would be following the same path as a number of Belgian stars who also began their career with Genk. Kevin De Bruyne, Thibaut Courtois and Yannick Carrasco is certainly not bad company to follow. Will he be as good as them? Only time will tell.
