According to reports, Arsenal are showing an interest in Genk forward Leandro Trossard, reports claim.

The Gunners are currently short n attacking options with Danny Welbeck rulled out due to inury sustained during their goalless dram against Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League.

The 23-year-old forward has been in impressive form for Genk this season, scoring 15 goals and four assists in just 18 appearances, including two goals in two games in Genk’s Europa League campaign so far.

Genk manager Philippe Clement has told Arsenal they’ll have to pay more than €25m to sign Leandro Trossard in January.

However, his manager insists that he’s not worried about his star goalscorer departing the club in the winter window, adding that clubs would have to pay over the odds to sign Trossard in January.

“I’m not afraid Trossard is leaving,” Clement said“It was not so easy to keep him last summer, but we talked. Normally no players leave in January. €100m is something else, €25m is not enough for Trossard to leave in January.”

Trossard is 23 years old, and he has a contract with Genk until 2021. The Belgian forward is yet to feature for his national team, despite his goalscoring exploits, which might make him keen to join a more high-profile club in January.
