Unai Emery reportedly wants to sign a winger this summer and the Scotland international appears to have emerged as a top target after a fine season on the South Coast under Eddie Howe.
But, with funds tight at the Emirates, Arsenal have just £40 million to spend, it seems the Gunners have identified alternative targets with Bournemouth likely to demand a huge fee for one of their star players.
As a result, Trossard is also reportedly on their radar. A 24-year-old who plays in Belgium with Genk, Trossard is hardly a household name but a tally 19 goals and eight assists from out wide is not to be sniffed at.
The Belgian U21 international has arguably been the best player in the Jupiler League this season with Genk top of the table.
Interestingly, Trossard’s agent admitted back in November that Arsenal had shown interest in his client with a move to North London seemingly a genuine possibility.
“Arsenal have (contacted Trossard),” said Josy Comhair told Sporza. “They told me that Leandro has a very interesting profile for them and that they have been following him since August.”
Football London adds another name into the frame too: Boca Juniors’ Argentina international Christian Pavon.
