Report says why Spurs haven’t signed Arsenal man Trossard

The Athletic have explained why Tottenham did not pursue their interest in signing Leandro Trossard from Brighton in the January window – with north London rivals Arsenal winning the race to snap up the Belgian for a fee of £25million.

Trossard, 28, was due to leave the Seagulls. His contract had been extended – the Seagulls included a clause in his deal to extend it until June 2024. But this exercise was merely to maximize its price. Brighton eventually received £25million.

But earlier in the window, ahead of his Arsenal move, Trossard was heavily linked with a move to Spurs. However, the Belgian World Cup star has since ended up at Arsenal – coming on as a substitute against Manchester United in the league.

He also started in the 1-0 defeat by Manchester City in the FA Cup. The Athletic’s report explains why Tottenham decided not to sign him. They report that Spurs felt Trossard had no resale value at 28. They said he wasn’t worth £25m.

“At 28 Trossard lacked resale value which meant Spurs were unwilling to approach the £25m fee Arsenal would end up paying for a player with 18 months left in his contract with Brighton & Hove Albion had,” Athletic reported this week.

Spurs have brought in Arnaut Danjuma instead. A player who has just turned 26 and cost Spurs a small entry fee as he is on loan. He has a permanent clause in his loan deal at Spurs, valued at a whopping £27million.

Whilst Trossard has proven himself in the Premier League and many would argue better than Danjuma – the latter offers versatility. Trossard is ideally a left winger who can play on the right. Danjuma can play both crosses, the ten roll and even up front.
