According to Diario AS, the 27-year-old is garnering interest from Premier League powerhouses Arsenal, Chelsea, and Newcastle United, as well as La Liga heavyweights Atletico Madrid.
According to the report, Atleti’s interest in Trossard is not new; the Rojiblancos are believed to have been following the versatile winger since he played for KRC Genk in Belgium.
The Belgian international has been one of Brighton’s best players in the Premier League since they moved there in 2019, and they are now enjoying a solid start to the current season.
Atléti could use a player of Trossard’s caliber with Joao Felix’s future in doubt and Yannick Carrasco also having an underwhelming season so far. They are not the only ones looking for the former Genk star, though.
Since Graham Potter recently took over at Stamford Bridge after leaving Brighton, rumors of a transfer to Chelsea have circulated. Newcastle United is reportedly interested in the 27-year-old, and Arsenal is also reportedly interested.
Therefore, it will undoubtedly be challenging for Atlético Madrid to sign Trossard. He will be accessible for nothing because his contract expires at the end of the current campaign. However, the Premier League’s clubs could pay the Belgian much more than Los Colchoneros could.

A club of Atlético Madrid’s stature would be embarrassed to lose in the UEFA Champions League group stage. Finishing last in the group and not even being eligible for the Europa League is a new low.
Star goalkeeper Jan Oblak reportedly entered the locker room following yesterday’s loss to FC Porto beyond frustrated, and he did not hold back in expressing his shock at what had just occurred, according to reports from Belen Sanchez Garcia.
One of the team’s top players on Tuesday evening was Oblak, who came up big several times in the opening period to contain the damage. He made an incredible six saves in his 90 minutes on the pitch, including five from the penalty area, to keep his team in the game.
