Arsenal 'keeping close eye on Leandro Trossard'

Arsenal are monitoring the development of Genk forward Leandro Trossard, according to the agent of the 23-year-old.

The agent of Genk forward Leandro Trossard has claimed that Arsenal hold a long-standing interest in the 23-year-old.

Manager Unai Emery placed much of his focus on acquiring defensive-minded players during the summer, but the ankle injury sustained by Danny Welbeck is likely to force the Gunners boss back into the market in January.

Trossard's representative Josy Comhair has suggested that Arsenal are only weighing up an approach at the end of the season, but has hinted that the Premier League side have been monitoring the progress of the Belgian frontman.

Comhair told Sporza: "I contacted representatives from Arsenal and Tottenham. At Spurs, nobody wanted to confirm that Trossard is an option, but Arsenal did. They told me Leandro has a very interesting profile for them and that they've been following him since August.

"They also added it was a good choice to stay at Genk for another year. They ended the phone call with 'They are keeping a close eye on him'."

Trossard has scored 10 goals from 13 outings in Belgium's top flight and the Europa League during the current campaign.
