Leandro Trossard’s agent has stoked a few fires by admitting his client could join Arsenal this summer.

Arsenal, as we know, are in the market for a winger but with the club saying nothing and a host of names in circulation, it’s almost impossible to know where their interest truly lies.

Step forward Josy Comhair to mix things up a little.

“There is no agreement with any club yet,” Comhair told Belgian publication Het Nieuwsblad. “But I think that Germany is a beautiful country for him. You can take it one step higher via Germany.

“Because with Arsenal you are immediately at the highest level and you can almost only go down. But yes, it can also be Arsenal.”

Around two weeks ago it was reported that Wolfsburg were in ‘pole position’ to land Belgian winger despite Arsenal scouting him since the beginning of time.

Back in November, Trossard’s agent admitted that Arsenal were watching his client but nothing was done about it as the club look to find the ideal solution to their winger problem. Recently, however, it was claimed they were back in touch.

With 11 goals and four assists in 24 Jupiler Pro League games, Trossard might be the answer to Arsenal’s wide problems but the club will have to make a move soon if they want to beat out Wolfsburg who are very keen on the player according to reports from Belgium.

One main problem, apart from the fact Arsenal haven’t even made a move, is the player believes he will get more playing time in Germany than in London with Arsenal.
