Darren Bent thinks Chelsea boss Graham Potter could try sign Brighton’s Leandro Trossard.

Trossard, 27, has been on fire in the Premier League so far this season.

The Belgian winger has been one of the standout players in the top division this term, scoring seven goals in 12 league appearances.

He’s a £15million attacker with superb close control and is a nightmare for defenders one-on-one, so the fact he’s now adding more goals to his game makes him a frightening player.

Bent thinks Chelsea could try sign Trossard

TalkSPORT pundit Bent actually predicts Potter could try form a reunion with Trossard at Stamford Bridge after coaching him at Brighton.

“He’s (Trossard) been so good,” Bent told talkSPORT.

When asked if Potter will try sign Trossard, Bent responded: “Yeah, it wouldn’t surprise me. He knows him and trusts him. Fantastic.”

Potter suffered a very negative response from the Brighton crowd on his return to the South Coast at the weekend. Those scenes would increase tenfold the next time he faces them if he’s snatched Trossard, though.

90min previously reported in October that Chelsea and Newcastle United could be interested in signing Trossard.

He’s a dazzling left-winger that can be one of the most aesthetically pleasing individuals to watch in the Premier League, but it would be a big step up in his career.

The Brighton star has done well at the Amex Stadium at Premier League level. He spent a lot of his earlier career with Genk, too.

It’s going to be interesting to see if clubs believe the Belgium international is hitting his prime and reaching new heights, or is this just a purple patch of form in the opening third of the season.
