Leandro Trossard, a midfielder for Brighton, has refused to rule out the possibility of joining Graham Potter’s team but insists they have not contacted him.
With seven goals and two assists in the Premier League so far this season, the 27-year-old has been one of Brighton’s top performers.
Trossard’s contributions have also earned him a spot in the Belgium team for their World Cup campaign, which starts later this month in Qatar.
The midfielder, who previously played for Potter at Brighton, has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea. There, he would be reunited with Potter.
When asked about Chelsea’s interest, Trossard replied: “Chelsea has in any case not yet reported,” to Het Laatste Nieuws. Not with me, and not with Brighton.
He must watch and wait. He hopes to have a strong finish at Brighton and carry that feeling into Qatar.
Trossard said that it was strange that Potter left Brighton for Chelsea in September because he had always played under Potter at Brighton and had improved year after year.
After completing all of the preparation, a new coach appears in September.
The responses to De Zerbi, however, were all positive, so you don’t know what to anticipate. He wants to play football, and I am perfect for how he wants to play.
The versatile attacker, who is arguably Brighton’s best player, excelled at the Amex under Graham Potter before he took over as Thomas Tuchel’s replacement in September.
Trossard, whose contract expires at the end of the current campaign, has continued his stellar play thus far, tallying seven goals and two assists in 12 Premier League contests, including a hat trick against Liverpool at Anfield.
Brighton defeated Chelsea 4-1 on Saturday, with the Seagulls currently in eighth place in the standings. The 27-year-old Belgian international scored the game’s first goal.
Since Potter is the manager at Stamford Bridge, many have speculated that Trossard’s next stop could be Chelsea. Trossard has been linked with a move to a more powerful club for some time.
