Redknapp claims Arsenal transfer target could join the club as soon as January, he's been excellent this season

Former Liverpool midfielder and now Sky Sports pundit, Jamie Redknapp, has suggested rumoured Arsenal target Leandro Trossard could be on the move in January.

Trossard, 27, has been the star man at Brighton this season, having made 10 goal contributions in the Premier League so far in 2022/23.

During Roberto De Zerbi's first game in charge, Trossard became the first player to score a hat-trick at Anfield since Andrey Arshavin in April 2009 and he has also grabbed goals against Manchester City and Chelsea.

The tricky winger's blistering form was rewarded with a call-up to Belgium's World Cup squad, with Roberto Martinez's side due to face Canada, Morocco and Croatia in Group F.


Redknapp: Clubs are going to come for him

With the January transfer window rapidly approaching, it has been reported that Arsenal are open to signing a winger and Trossard is one of several names linked.

“They [Brighton] aren’t afraid to sell players because they can find the next one to come in, a bit like Trossard,” Redknapp said on Sky Sports Premier League.

“They know clubs are going to be coming in for him in January or at the end of the season, but they can live with it.

“He is one of my favourite players and he has been for a few years. He just sees the game so well. He has every trick in the book. He can pass. He presses really well. He has got lovely skill.

"You press him and he will walk past you," Redknapp added.

The Gunners' interest in wingers also extends to Shakhtar Donetsk star Mykhailo Mudryk, but they are expected to face competition for his signature from a number of other top European clubs.
