Tottenham Hotspur are tracking the situation of Leandro Trossard and Fabrizio Romano expects some form of development surrounding his future in the coming days.
What’s the latest?
Spurs are said to be eyeing a possible move for the Brighton & Hove Albion forward, Trossard, this month amid his ongoing situation on the south coast.
The Belgian has had a very public falling out with the Brighton manager and is believed to have left the country as their spat developed over the weekend.
It is also believed Spurs have already had a verbal offer for the Belgian rejected by Brighton with the offer believed to be worth in the region of £12m.

And as the speculation continues to grow over his future with Brighton, Romano has said on the House of Champions YouTube channel that he expects the Belgian to leave this month:
“It is true Tottenham approached Brighton. It was a few days ago; at the moment, not reaching any agreement, but it’s true that Tottenham are very interested in Trossard. He’s one of the options they are considering, he’s a player appreciated, but at the moment, it’s still not at an advanced stage yet.
“I think the player will leave in January. The player wants to go; his relationship with De Zerbi and with Brighton, in general, is broken. So the player asked the club to leave immediately and I think in the next days there will be developments for a player who is really interesting – Premier League-proven.”
Optimism for Spurs?
Given their form over the last few months, it would seem apparent that Spurs need some form of a boost this month to rescue their season from truly capitulating.
And it does appear as if the Belgian is the option they could look to if they are to bring in another forward over the course of this month.
However, there is a belief that the Seagulls are looking for an offer in the region of £25m if they are to allow their seven-goal forward to depart in this January window.
Would Trossard improve Spurs?
