[Football] Leandro Trossard **Sold To Arsenal 20/01/2023**

Albion and Premier League latest from Sky Sports

No "good luck Leo" from me. I hope it all goes terribly wrong for him.

There is a right way to get a move (eg Dan Burn) and there is doing it in the most disrespectul, ungrateful and twattish way (Cucu and Tross)
Bit harsh IMO.

He's put in a few good years but yes, he's then had a strop. But really, we got some good games from him and unlike Cucu he didn't decide to whinge after ONE f***ing season. Plus none of us really know what went on behind the scenes. He may have been told (verbal agreement) he could go, only to find that counted for nothing after the WC. Not saying that's what happened, we just don't know.

I'll choose to remember him for some quality performances (among occasions where you forgot he was playing) and leave it there. A gentle clap from me when he returns.

£27m is a good price. This deal suits both us and the player. Life is too short to berate Leo over this, if he wanted to go then let him. Arsenal is a good fit for him and I suspect his move will be more successful than both Cucurella's and Bissouma's, although I suspect he will still plenty of time on the bench at The Emirates. if he can wind his neck in about that then he'll do just fine.

Good luck to him. We move on with our young squad full of vim, vigour and excitement!

RDZ isn't able to rectify the contract situation. Trossard, like Maupay, didn’t want to sign a new deal. We triggered his contract extension to preserve his value, he made it clear he wants to leave with dreadful performances on the pitch and in training. DeZerbi dropped him after his training ground antics.

Don’t see what else anyone could’ve done.
Exactly! With Trossard he simply didn't put a shift in which is unforgivable. He seemed totally uninterested when on the pitch and was called out in training too.

Nonsense. Potter fell out with Ryan and Maupay and Cucurella handed in a transfer request.

My overall feeling on this is surprise at how little we've missed him. Would have been third or fourth name on my teamsheet at the start of the season. But with Mitoma, Sarmiento and now Buonanotte as succession plans I think we can cash in on a want-away 28 year old. I won't give him much grief on his return, he certainly gave us a bit more in terms of service than Marc "one season" Cucurella. Just a shame he seemed to hibernate in mid-winter.
Precisely. If you'd told me in August or September that we'd lose Trossard in January, I'd have considered it to be a disaster. Now I'm somewhat indifferent to it, despite rating Tross highly for a long time.

Think £27m is good business and a decent deal all round for us, Trossard and Arsenal.

He's been a quality player for us, hope he now goes on and gets a league winners medal. We can move on, we've already got a better player in his position now in Mitoma anyway and hopefully we can use some of this money to fund the purchase of another wonderkid.
