What Alan Shearer said about Leandro Trossard as Newcastle eye Brighton star

Newcastle United are reportedly eyeing a potential swoop for Brighton star Leandro Trossard.

The Daily Mail have claimed that the Magpies are on the Belgium international’s tail, as they seek to improve in the wide areas.

Supposedly, he is looking to move on from the Amex Stadium this summer.

Trossard’s contract with the Seagulls expires in the summer of 2023, and it seems he could force Brighton to cash in on him.

It is just the latest link to Brighton for Newcastle

Of course, the Magpies landed Dan Burn back in January. And it is expected Dan Ashworth will eventually follow to become the new sporting director.

And recently, Newcastle were also linked with a move for Yves Bissouma.

He’s established himself as one of Brighton’s best and most creative players since his arrival in English football.

And Trossard caught the eye of Alan Shearer when Newcastle and Brighton faced off in March in 2020/21.

Selecting him in his Team of the Week for that weekend, he said: “An outstanding display by the Belgian. Marked by some incisive passes and a wonderful opening goal that set the tone for victory.”

Leandro Trossard would be an exciting addition by Newcastle

Trossard would make for a really good signing by Newcastle, especially in a potentially cut-price deal.

The £35,000-a-week star (Spotrac) really stood out for the Seagulls in recent times, and Newcastle saw first-hand how good he is when he shone back in November. That was when Eddie Howe was watching on from the stands with Amanda Staveley ahead of his unveiling.

It would be good for the club to snap someone up with Premier League experience.

Trossard, 27, has proven himself with Brighton. If he is ready to push for an exit, Newcastle should position themselves front and centre.
