Arsenal will have their sights set on securing nothing less than a top four spot in the current campaign, as fans can’t stand another season in the Europa League.
The Gunners have certainly looked impressive at times under the guidance of Unai Emery, but the defensive side of things has let the North London club down on a number of occasions.
Interestingly, it appears as if Emery is already looking towards the summer transfer window, as according to football.london, Arsenal have their sights set on a summer move for Leandro Trossard.
Sven Mislintat was reportedly targeting Leandro Trossard back in November, according to Metro. Indeed, according to Trossard’s agent (as per Sporza), Arsenal were monitoring the attacker last year, but his representatives ruled out a January move for the Belgian.
‘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 have been following him since August.
‘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’.’
So, it appears as if Unai Emery has Mislintat to thank for bringing Trossard into the picture as the Spaniard now has his sights set on securing the attacker in the summer transfer window.
Trossard has been prolific in the current campaign having found the back of the net 17 times, with eight assists to his name. His pace, dribbling ability and creativity makes him a very dangerous asset.
The Gunners should go ahead and pay the reported £22 million as he has plenty of potential and has already shown that he can produce an incredible amount of contributions at his current club. Arsenal are lacking quality in wide areas at this moment in time, so it seems like a no brainer.
Arsenal fans – thoughts on a potential move for Leandro Trossard?
