Arsenal officially announced on the club website on the 21st (Korean time), “Trossar has signed a long-term contract with Arsenal. His uniform number is 19.” Director Edu said, “I am delighted to be able to sign Trosar. Arsenal brought Trosar with a clear vision and plan. Trosar will improve the quality of Arsenal.”
Trossar, who grew up in Genk, a prestigious Belgian town, came to Brighton in 2019. As soon as he arrived, he received the trust of manager Graham Porter and played steadily. His original position is a winger, but he could also play as a forward, wingback, or attacking midfielder. He matched Porter’s propensity to change positions during matches. His scoring ability was disappointing. He was often criticized for his lack of decisiveness even when his performance was good.
His season has been different. Trossar has scored 7 goals in 16 matches in the English Premier League (EPL). Considering he scored 8 goals in 34 appearances last season, his scoring per game has increased. Even after Porter left for Chelsea, he was praised for taking charge of the Brighton attack. The value of Trosar, who became the Brighton ace and main gun, increased even more.
His contract expires at the end of this season, but there has been no news of a renewal. He only got word that Trosar had said he wanted to go to a bigger club. In the meantime, rumors of a feud broke out. Trosar has been frequently excluded from Brighton matches in recent years, and it has been argued that this is the aftermath of disciplinary action for overshadowing the team atmosphere with quarrels with teammates. 메이저놀이터
Several clubs approached Trosar, who had fallen out with Brighton and was short of a contract. It was also connected with Tottenham Hotspur, and Chelsea, who wants to strengthen the attack, was also talked about. The final destination was Arsenal. Arsenal has many good wingers such as Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli, but considering the tight schedule, it was true that they lacked numbers and lacked the skills of non-main strikers.
The signing of Trosar gave Arsenal a clear attacking option. England’s ‘The Athletic’ said the transfer fee was 27 million pounds (approximately 41.2 billion won). Arsenal, which has succeeded in strengthening the offense by recruiting Trosar, intends to strengthen the defense by bringing in Jakub Kibior.
