According to 90min, Spurs are monitoring Leandro Trossard’s position at Brighton in preparation for a prospective transfer for the winger.
The Seagulls have reportedly activated a 12-month extension clause in Trossard’s contract, keeping him down until 2024 and preventing him from leaving for free this summer, according to 90min.
Key players like Alexis Mac Allister and Moises Caicedo have attracted transfer interest as a result of Brighton’s success over the past two seasons. Alexis Mac Allister’s stock is even higher now that Argentina won the World Cup.
Trossard, according to sources, is the regular starter who is most likely to depart the Amex Stadium this month, but Brighton may not give in and let him leave for a cheap deal.
Although Trossard is not currently seen as a key target for Spurs at this point in the summer, they have enquired about his availability and are being kept updated on his condition by Brighton.
Newcastle United is another club interested in signing the Belgian international. Dan Ashworth, the sporting director for the Magpies, was at Brighton when the Seagulls acquired him from Genk in 2019.
Trossard, who typically plays as a wide forward and has significantly increased his goal total in recent seasons, can also play through the middle or at wing-back.
