TOTTENHAM’S pursuit of Brighton forward Leandro Trossard has reportedly “accelerated” as they eye a January transfer.
The Belgian, 28, joined from Genk in 2019 for £15million.
He has been a superb asset for the Seagulls, contributing 25 goals and 14 assists in 121 appearances.
That includes seven goals and three assists in 17 games so far this season.
But he was reduced to a spot on the bench for the whole of Brighton’s 4-1 Premier League victory over Everton.
And manager Roberto De Zerbi then left him out of the squad altogether for the 5-1 FA Cup win over Middlesbrough.
Brighton are aware of the sides monitoring him, but a move is not expected to be completed until later in the window – if at all.
Antonio Conte is keen to add to his squad after Tottenham dropped out of the top four over Christmas.
But their squad is still suffering with a number of injuries, particularly in the forward areas.
