As the trade moves forward, Arsenal and the star of Brighton establish personal terms

Arsenal have reportedly agreed personal terms with Brighton star Leandro Trossard, as the Belgian edges closer to an exit from the Seagulls.

Trossard, 28, has starred for Brighton this season, scoring seven goals as they emerged as contenders for the European qualification places. But since the World Cup, his relationship with boss Roberto De Zerbi has broken down, with the Italian banishing him from training.

The tensions between De Zerbi and Trossard publicly exploded last week when the Belgian’s agent released a statement which furiously hit out at the Brighton boss. Josy Comhair accused De Zerbi of “humiliating” his client and demanded that Brighton work to secure him a move in the January transfer window.

It appears that Trossard has quickly seen his wish granted, with reports emerging on Thursday that the Gunners have already agreed personal terms with the 28-year-old. The Premier League leaders have opened talks with Brighton, with negotiations said to be an an advanced stage.

An official bid is thought to be ready to be submitted as Arsenal look to secure the Belgian, with hope that the deal can be completed soon. The move for Trossard comes days after the Gunners were beaten to top target Mykhaylo Mudryk by Chelsea.

The Blues completed an £87million move for the Ukrainian on Saturday, having hijacked Arsenal’s pursuit of the winger. After that transfer broke down, Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta hinted the club’s transfer chiefs were working on alternative targets.
