Arsenal Sign Leandro Trossard For £27m From Brighton


Arsenal have confirmed the signing of Leandro Trossard from Brighton on a long term contract.

Trossard emerged as a transfer target for the Premier League leaders after the Belgian demanded an exit from the AMEX. The two clubs quickly agreed a deal worth around £27m and he will now aid Arsenal as they seek a first league title since 2003/04.

Arsenal add they are "hoping" Trossard will be available to face Manchester United on Sunday having submitted all relevant documents.

Gunners sporting director Edu said: “We’re delighted to have completed the signing of Leandro Trossard. We have a clear plan and strategy for our direction, and it’s been a great team effort in bringing Leandro to the club.

"Leandro is a player who will give us a high level of quality going forward. I know Mikel and our coaches are excited to start working with him. Welcome Leandro!”

Manager Mikel Arteta added: “It is good work from everyone at the club to complete the signing of Leandro. He is a versatile player with high technical ability, intelligence and a great deal of experience in the Premier League and at international level.
