Everton: Blues eye Leandro Trossard

Everton: Blues eye Leandro Trossard -Everton News

Everton are keen on Brighton and Hove Albion’s Leandro Trossard, according to sports journalist Pete O’Rourke.

The lowdown

With Dominic Calvert-Lewin currently out injured, Salomon Rondon is the only fit centre-forward at Frank Lampard’s disposal.

While he’s predominantly a left winger, Trossard is capable of playing as a striker or an attacking midfielder.

The 27-year-old is into the final year of his contract at the Amex Stadium. However, The Athletic reported in May that Brighton have the option to extend his deal by a further 12 months.

The latest

O’Rourke took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to share the news on Trossard.

“Everton are interested in a move Brighton attacker Leandro Trossard,” he wrote.

The verdict

Trossard would be a good signing for Everton.

In 107 appearances for Brighton, he’s recorded a highly respectable 30 goal involvements (scoring 19 and assisting 11).

And he’s currently enjoying a strong run of form, with eight goals in his last 15 for club and country.

He was on target again at the weekend, netting Brighton’s second in their 2-0 win at West Ham United.

Trossard, similar in profile to Paulo Dybala and Antoine Griezmann according to FBRef, has been dubbed a ‘complete package’ by Brighton journalist Andy Naylor.

His agent says he will only leave Brighton for ‘a really attractive project’, and so it’s down to Frank Lampard and co. to convince him that Everton is a significant step-up.
