Leandro Trossard insists he must “wait and see” whether or not Chelsea make a move in January.

The Belgian has been one of the standout players in the first half of the Premier League season, scoring seven goals and laying on a further two assists in 13 appearances.

Already one off his most prolific season’s tally, the 27-year-old has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in order to reunite with former Brighton boss Graham Potter.

Chelsea are prepared to spend again in January and boast a good relationship with Brighton despite raiding them for talent over the past few months.

Marc Cucurella arrived at Stamford Bridge before Potter’s arrival and the managerial move then paved the way for Brighton’s former coaching staff to move up to the capital.

Most recently, Paul Winstanley – head of recruitment at the Amex Stadium – was placed on gardening leave as talks continue between Brighton and Chelsea.

Trossard’s contract expires at the end of the season and, speaking to Belgian outlet Het Laatste Nieuws, the forward revealed the latest on his future.

“Chelsea have in any case not yet reported,” he said.

“Not with Brighton and not with me. I have to wait and see.”
