Arsenal reportedly linked with summer move for 17-goals and 8-assists forward

The Premier League heavyweights Arsenal are reportedly targeting a summer swoop for Genk winger Leandro Trossard, according to the latest reports.

Unai Emery wanted Arsenal to recruit a new wide midfielder in the January transfer market but the club were unable to secure late deals for either Yannick Carrasco or Ivan Perisic.

Arsenal remain in the transfer market for a new winger and will be in a better position to conclude a deal in the summer as they will have a larger transfer kitty to spend.

According to an exclusive report from Football.London, Leandro is high on Arsenal’s summer shortlist and the 24-year-old star would be keen on a move to Unai’s side.

Trossard, who is valued at £22 million by his club, is also being monitored by several Bundesliga sides including Borussia Dortmund, who will be planning to replace Chelsea-bound winger Christian Pulisic at the end of the campaign.

Trossard has enjoyed a standout campaign for Genk with 17 goals and eight assists in 29 matches so far. The Belgian mainly plays on the left flank but is also capable of playing in a central role behind the striker.

Leandro will still have two years remaining on his current contract with Genk in the summer transfer market.
