The London team is contacting to recruit the hottest winger in the Premier League at the moment – Leandro Trossard for £ 30 million.
The 27-year-old Belgian is having an impressive start to the 2022/23 season in Brighton shirt.
Trossard has scored 7 goals in 12 Premier League games, only behind strikers Erling Haaland, Harry Kane, Aleksandar Mitrovic and Ivan Toney.
According to journalist Sacha Tavolier, the outstanding performance that Trossard showed made the Chelsea leader restless, determined to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
Graham Potter was Trossard’s teacher before joining Chelsea. Therefore, the British military leader clearly understood the old student’s ability.
Trossard’s forte is as a winger, but when needed he can take on the wing-back role in a midfield of five.
The current contract between the Belgian and Brighton will expire at the end of this season. The Amex Stadium team has the right to activate the automatic extension for another 12 months.
If Trossard does not sign again, Brighton will be forced to sell him next summer for a fee of less than £ 30 million to avoid the risk of losing everything next year.
However, Chelsea will face fierce competition in the race to sign Trossard. MU, Newcastle and West Ham are all interested in the Belgian player.
In Brighton’s recent 4-1 victory over Chelsea, it was Leandro Trossard who hit Kepa’s net to open the scoring and stir up the Blues’ defense many times.
