Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion have reportedly agreed on a deal to sign Genk winger Leandro Trossard this summer.

This is according to the publication from Belgian media outlet Belang van Limburg which claimed that Genk and Brighton have agreed on a fee of €20m for the player.

Leandro Trossard, 24, was previously linked with a move to North London with Arsenal, especially during the winter transfer window.

The agreement between the two clubs was confirmed by Genk CEO Erik Gerits via Belang van Limburg.

According to the club CEO, the two clubs have agreed on a deal for the transfer of Leandro Trossard meaning that the next step is for the player to agree on personal terms with Brighton.

It was revealed by the aforementioned publication that his agent Josy Comhair was in the United Kingdom over the weekend but he was not able to agree to a weekly salary with Brighton on behalf of his client Leandro Trossard.

The Gunners were linked with the Belgian attacker in January but the move didn’t materialize mainly because of the lack of finance on the part of the North Londoners.

Arsenal ended up with Denis Suarez on loan from Spanish champions Barcelona but the player was unable to make the desired impact.
