Leandro Trossard has reportedly been offered to Chelsea by Brighton & Hove Albion.
According to Ben Jacobs, the Seagulls have presented their player to a number of Premier League clubs in the past few months.
This includes to the Stamford Bridge chain of command, who apparently ‘haven’t ruled anything out’ in regards to reuniting Graham Potter with his former pupil.
Chelsea have been linked with a move for Trossard repeatedly this season, one of the less stellar potentially en route to South West London.
The Belgian’s future at the Amex remains up for debate, despite his employers extending his contract by another year.
His deal was set to expire in the summer, but Brighton reportedly decided to extend his stay until next term.
This hasn’t quelled the questions regarding his status by the South Coast, however.
Leandro Trossard could still head to Chelsea
Jacobs claims that Trossard still wants to leave the team he joined for £15m in 2019.
He might view a transfer to Chelsea as a chance to possibly secure a bigger pay package, or greater attention on his talents.
It certainly wouldn’t be to obtain European football.
Potter’s side languish 10th in the league following their fourth defeat in six matches at home to Manchester City last Thursday.
They are actually two points below Trossard and Brighton, who could well squeeze into the Europa Conference League or even Europa League spot.
Manage that, and their wantaway attacker might think again about joining Chelsea.
