Chelsea still reportedly have their eyes on Brighton & Hove Albion’s Leandro Trossard.

According to 90min, the Blues remain interested in the Belgian international, despite his club employers deciding to extend his contract by 12 months.

90min claim that the Brighton chain of command have exercised their right to push Trossard’s deal back to 2024, with it previously set to expire this summer.

The 28-year-old’s long-term future remains up for debate, but for this season at least, he will remain a Seagull.

But this hasn’t prevented Chelsea from apparently keeping the £15m attacker on their radar.

Chelsea are still tracking Leandro Trossard

Graham Potter may’ve had a word in Todd Boehly’s ear to make sure the pursuit did not fizzle out entirely.

Potter and Trossard formed a strong bond during their days by the South Coast together, leading the current Chelsea manager to label his former player as ‘fantastic’.

Now rather out of his comfort zone, Potter might be wishing he had some familiar faces around the Cobham facilities.

He already has Marc Cucurella in the squad, having initially allowed him to leave Brighton last August.

Moises Caicedo, Alexis Mac Allister and Robert Sanchez have all also been linked to a reunion with their old coach.

Out of the four, Trossard is the most likely to swap the Amex for Stamford Bridge.

His uncertain status within Roberto De Zerbi’s squad means Chelsea could snap him up more easily, and probably cheaper, than his teammates.
