Tottenham ‘make Leandro Trossard transfer enquiry’ as they look to snap up Belgian after Brighton banishment
TOTTENHAM have made a transfer enquiry for Brighton star Leandro Trossard, reports suggest.
Seagulls manager Roberto De Zerbi dropped Trossard from his squad that thrashed Liverpool 3-0 on Saturday due to attitude problems.
The winger then reportedly boarded a Eurostar train and headed back to Belgium.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Spurs are looking to take advantage of the ongoing tension at the Amex.
Tottenham contacted Brighton and made an enquiry last week but there was no progress.
The Belgium international’s contract has a year’s extension that can be triggered by his club and can be taken to 2024.
However, the 28-year-old’s agent Josy Comhair revealed that communication between his client and De Zerbi has broken down and a January move will be “beneficial for both parties”.
But the Italian head coach has opened the door for Trossard’s return to his team.
De Zerbi said: “I want to be clear about Trossard. I’m sorry for the situation. I don’t think I’ve made a mistake with him. The people inside Brighton know very well the situation.
‘I’m fine with myself and I’m ready to open the doors for him, because he’s a good guy and a very important player for us.

“He changes the team, but he has to understand and to work with my attitude, in my way, because I am the coach, I decide the rules inside the dressing room, only this.
“I’m honest, I’m very clear. When I want to say something I speak inside the family and our family is the dressing room. I don’t want to speak about the communication of his agent, because I don’t know him, I know only Leo.
“I’m ready to listen to him without a problem, because this situation is important.
“It’s not a bad situation, it’s a great situation, because if he learns, if we improve our way, we can only improve, and to achieve our dreams there is only one way.
“To be open to improve and ready to work hard, because we are Brighton, a team of medium level in this competition, so we have to think about the team more than ourselves.”
