Leandro Trossard's 19 goals for Jupiler League giants KRC Genk could reportedly earn him a move to the Premier League with Arsenal.

KRC Genk will demand £17 million if Arsenal come calling for their inspirational captain Leandro Trossard, as reported by Voetbal Belgie.

Football London claimed earlier this week that Trossard had been lined up as a potential summer signing for the Gunners, with head coach Unai Emery keen to enhance his options in wide areas.

It was claimed that the Belgian was an alternative to their top target - Bournemouth flyer Ryan Fraser.


Trossard might not be proven in the Premier League like the diminutive Scottish speedster, but his tally of 19 goals from the left wing means the interest is understandable.

The 24-year-old has added another eight assists to his tally and has captained Genk since Alejandro Pozuelo left at the turn of the year.

According to Voetbal Belgie, Trossard came to an agreement with the Genk board that last summer that he could leave the Jupiler League outfit if a club is willing to pay £17 million for the privilege.

This should be well within Arsenal’s budget, even if funds are tighter at the Emirates than Emery would have liked.

Trossard’s agent, Josy Comhair, told Sporza in the autumn that Arsenal have been tracking the winger since August and contacted him about a potential move to the Emirates.
