Introducing: The man perfect for Arsenal and Unai Emery, Leandro Trossard

For all of Arsenal’s ability in front of goal, there is still something that is missing from Unai Emery’s attacking jigsaw.

The Gunners may well be challenging for the Europa League title and a place in the top four of the Premier League, however, the left-hand side of their final third could certainly do with upgrading in the summer.

And, Leandro Trossard could be the ideal man to help Emery finally complete that puzzle when it comes to his options up top.

Valued at £12.6million by Transfermarkt, the 24-year-old has been linked (from Kicker via Sky Sports Germany) with a move to Arsenal for a while now and the Gunners must simply look to do all they can to acquire the KRC Genk winger in the summer.

The Belgian would be an excellent replacement for Danny Welbeck, who could be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium this summer with his contract set to expire, whilst he could also be a more reliable option than Alex Iwobi on the flanks.

Trossard has all the attributes to become a success story in north London, with his productivity in the final third something definitely worth shouting about.

The 24-year-old has been in lethal form for KRC Genk this season, having notched 21 goals and nine assists in his 42 appearances across all competitions, figures that could also end up benefitting the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang even more.

The Belgian is gifted with the combination of pace and ball control which allows him to dribble past his defenders with ease, whilst his crossing ability is something to be admired at times.

What will also appeal to Emery and Arsenal is the fact that Trossard is also very versatile and can provide the club with a number of options in the forward areas, although being deployed on the left would probably suit the Premier League side just fine.

The winger is just another exciting Belgian talent with plenty of potential, despite not having featured for his country’s senior side just yet, and he would certainly help to bring the glory days back to the club.


With that in mind, Arsenal must do all they can to land Trossard this summer, otherwise, they could end up missing out on him altogether.
