‘It’s very clear that Leandro will continue to play football at Genk for another year,’ Josy 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 have 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’.’
