27-year-old Potter loves says 'wait and see' about move to Chelsea

‘Wait and see’: 27-year-old who Potter loves refuses to rule out move to Chelsea next year

Brighton winger Leandro Trossard has told HLN he is refusing to rule out a move to Chelsea in a future transfer window.

The Belgian has enjoyed his best individual campaign since joining the seaside club.

He has scored seven goals and assisted two in the Premier League, nearly already reaching the heights he has in previous seasons in terms of goals.

The Blues got a first-hand viewing of just how good he has been this season. He opened the scoring in Brighton’s humbling 4-1 win of the Blues a few weeks ago.

There had been rumours from the minute Graham Potter made the shift to Chelsea that he would be hoping to bring Trossard with him.

Trossard not ruling out Chelsea

He had always been a big fan of his former player, using multiple interviews to wax lyrical about his abilities.

Trossard has claimed that he is yet to hear of any interest from the West London side, however refused to rule out rejecting the offer if it came in.

He said: “Chelsea have in any case not yet reported. Not with Brighton and not with me. I have to wait and see. I want to finish strong at Brighton and leave for Qatar with that good feeling.”

With how well the 27-year-old is playing on the South coast, he is likely to only want to make the step up if he is guaranteed game time at his new team.

With fully fit wing-backs, it is unlikely the Belgian starts in one of those roles playing in the inverted system Potter had him playing at the Amex.

However, the lack of creativity and goalscoring at the front end of the pitch could see him offered the opportunity to make an impact on the starting team, potentially pushing out a number of other options.
