Tottenham make £12m Leandro Trossard transfer offer with Brighton winger having 'huge fall out with Roberto De Zerbi' | The Sun

TOTTENHAM have had a £12million bid for Leandro Trossard rejected by Brighton, according to reports.

The Belgian is unsettled on the South Coast after falling out with boss Roberto De Zerbi.

Trossard, 28, has been frozen out by the Italian after reportedly being involved in a training ground bust up with a team-mate.

And Spurs would like to profit on the situation by sealing a cut-price deal.

According to The Athletic, the North Londoners launched a verbal £12million offer last week.

The informal bid was turned down by Seagulls chiefs, with Tottenham yet to lodge another.

Trossard has just 18 months left on his contract at the Amex Stadium.

Agent Josy Comhair revealed that communications between his client and De Zerbi have broken down and a January move will be "beneficial for both parties".

But the Brighton gaffer hasn't ruled out a return to the fold for his skilful attacker.

He said: "I want to be clear about Trossard. I'm sorry for the situation. I don't think I've made a mistake with him. The people inside Brighton know very well the situation.

'I'm fine with myself and I'm ready to open the doors for him, because he's a good guy and a very important player for us.

"He changes the team, but he has to understand and to work with my attitude, in my way, because I am the coach, I decide the rules inside the dressing room, only this.

"I'm honest, I'm very clear. When I want to say something I speak inside the family and our family is the dressing room.

"I don't want to speak about the communication of his agent, because I don't know him, I know only Leo.

"I'm ready to listen to him without a problem, because this situation is important.

"It's not a bad situation, it's a great situation, because if he learns, if we improve our way, we can only improve, and to achieve our dreams there is only one way.

"To be open to improve and ready to work hard, because we are Brighton, a team of medium level in this competition, so we have to think about the team more than ourselves."

Prior to being dropped, Trossard was enjoying a productive season – scoring seven goals and laying on three assists in 16 Prem outings.

Brighton haven't struggled for goals since dropping him, however, beating Everton 4-1 before swatting Liverpool aside 3-0.
