According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Atletico Madrid are keen on Brighton winger Leandro Trossard.

The winger banged in 5 goals and provided 2 assists in 9 matches for Brighton this season across all fronts showcasing just how influential he has been in the final third.
The 27-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Belgium. Trossard has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 5 goals in 21 senior appearances for the Belgium national team.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Adding a winger remains Atletico Madrid’s top priority this winter and Diego Simeone will have drafted a shortlist of a number of possible targets he could approach in the coming weeks.
The Belgium international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of winger Simeone wants to target in the winter transfer window.
The former Genk man will add a new dimension to Atletico Madrid’s attack.
According to the report,” Atletico Madrid are interested in Brighton attacker Leandro Trossard. The Mirror says Atletico see the Belgium international as a January market target. Chelsea are also interested in Trossard. The midfielder is weighing up his options after kicking off the season in impressive form. Trossard comes off contract at the end of the season.”
Euro Football Rumours
The Spanish giants will have to come up with the right proposal to convince Trossard to join the club.
Brighton will not be able to demand a significant fee for Leandro Trossard since his current deal is set to expire in 2023.
Good signing for Atletico Madrid?
If Trossard is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Atletico.
The 27-year-old Belgium international could be a very good squad player for Diego Simeone over the next few years. He is at the peak of his career right now and Simeone could bring out the best in him.
How strong that interest is and whether Atletico will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
