Leandro Trossard open to Chelsea move

Incredibly a move to Stamford Bridge is an idea the 27-year-old is very much open to should the opportunity present itself.

Speaking to Het Niuewsblad, Trossard insisted that he has adapted well in the Premier League, hinting that he would thrive at Chelsea provided he is guaranteed playing time.

"I feel very good. We had a super good start with Brighton. I have evolved tremendously. I now know how Premier League works. I've grown tremendously in that. Confidence, mentally, physically... I have become better," he said.
"I have mastered the tricks now. Our coach did leave for Chelsea now but speculations about me following him make no sense. If the opportunity arises, I want to go. But I want to play and not sit on the bench," he added.
