BREAKING NEWS: Arsenal sign Trossard from Brighton after missing Mudryk

The Belgian international has agreed
long-term deal at Emirates Stadium, set to last until July 2027.

Arsenal have made no secret of their desire to bring in attacking reinforcements this month, with Mykhaylo Mudryk initially seen as their primary target.

But Chelsea beat them to signing the Ukraine international last week despite Mudryk appearing keen on a move to north London.

Shakhtar Donetsk have confirmed that Arsenal match Chelsea’s reported £89m (€100m) offer in monetary terms, but they believe the variables and bonuses in the Blues’ offer are more realistic.

However, some might think Trossard is a less risky signing and represents better value.

Arsenal are believed to have been fond of Trossard since before he joined Brighton from Genk in 2019, and at the Amex Stadium he has developed into a top winger who offers both goal threat and creativity.

Since the start of last season, Trossard is one of seven players to have scored at least 14 Premier League goals (excluding penalties) and created more than 65 chances from open play – the others are Harry Kane, Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Bruno Fernandes.

Arsenal’s north London rivals Tottenham had also been credited with an interest, although recent reports suggested a £12million bid by Spurs had been “derided”.

Trossard had been keen to leave Brighton after falling out with head coach Roberto De Zerbi, who criticized the winger’s attitude earlier this month after dropping him from the squad.
