The agent of reported Arsenal target Leandro Trossard has admitted his client could move to the Gunners this summer, but hinted that a switch to Germany is more likely.

The Gunners boss is keen to further strengthen his side this summer and is known to have targeted a new left-back, a centre-half and a winger.

Efforts to land a winger during January ultimately fell short, with Arsenal making late bids to bring both Yannick Carrasco and Ivan Perisic to north London.

The club have also watched RB Leipzig’s Ibrahima Konate on numerous occasions as they look to plug their defensive shortcomings, while wingers Nicolas Pepe and Yacine Brahimi have both come under the radar as potential summer recruits.

Reports from Football.London earlier in the year suggested that Emery also has a strong interest in Genk winger Trossard, having sent scouts to check on the £22million rated star on numerous occasions.

Now, Belgian outlet Het Nieuwsblad have conducted an interview with the player’s representative Josy Comhair on the future of his client, and he admitted it is time for Trossard to seek pastures new.

“There is no agreement with any club yet. But I think that Germany is a beautiful country for him. You can take it one step higher via Germany,” Comhair said.

“Because with Arsenal you are immediately at the highest level and you can almost only go down. But yes, it can also be Arsenal.”

Trossard has 11 goals and four assists in 24 league appearances for Genk so far this season.
