Leandro Trossard joins Arsenal FC on long-term contract!

Belgium international Leandro Trossard has joined Arsenal FC from Brighton & Hove Albion on a long-term contract.

The 28-year-old winger was a member of the Belgium squad at the recent 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar and has made 24 appearances for his country.

Leandro started his career in the youth academy at Genk in 2010, before quickly developing into the first-team squad. During his time with Genk, where he made 120 appearances, Leandro enjoyed successful loan spells with Lommel United, Westerlo and OH Leuven in the early development stages of his career.

In June 2019, Leandro signed for Brighton and was an integral part of the team during his time with the Seagulls, making 121 appearances.

Leandro has scored seven goals from his 16 Premier League appearances this season, including a hat-trick against Liverpool at Anfield in October. Later the same month, Leandro scored the 100th goal of his club career at Manchester City in the Premier League.

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.

“Leandro strengthens our squad as we head into the second part of the season and we’re all looking forward to working with him. We welcome Leandro and his family to Arsenal Football Club.”

All documents have been submitted and Arsenal FC are hoping Leandro will be eligible for selection for the match against Manchester United on Sunday.
