Trossard to join Gunners' title challenge

Arsenal have reached an agreement with Brighton to sign Belgium forward Leandro Trossard.

The Gunners have been in the market to bolster their attacking options in the January transfer window and have now agreed a fee for the 28-year-old understood to be worth A$38million plus add-ons.

Arsenal are keen to add strength in depth to their attacking options ahead of the Premier League title run-in, with summer signing Gabriel Jesus still some time off returning from a knee injury suffered at the World Cup.

Trossard, who featured in all three Belgium fixtures in the World Cup in Qatar, scored a hat-trick against Liverpool at Anfield earlier in the season.
