Arsenal: Leandro Trossard likely to feature against Manchester United

Arsenal have all but completed the deal – they hope Leandro Trossard can feature against Manchester United this weekend.

In what has been an excellent season so far for Arsenal, Mikel Arteta’s men face their biggest test yet. This weekend, the Gunners host Manchester United. With news breaking today of Leandro Trossard signing, he could even be available for the fixture.

Only this afternoon, breaking news from Fabrizio Romano suggested that the Gunners had completed the deal, with both club and player terms agreed. He even threw in a ‘Here we go’, if fans weren’t convinced enough already.

It’s a very, very fast deal and one the Gunners can be proud of. The deal is complete only 24 hours after the first contact, which demonstrates Arteta’s desire to get him in. The only thing which needs completing now is Trossard’s medical, but that won’t take much longer.

According to Goal correspondent Charles Watts on Twitter, Arsenal are hoping to make him available for the upcoming game against Manchester United. Given the injury to Gabriel Jesus, Trossard could be an exceptional addition to their front-line, as he needs no time to adjust to the Premier League.

Even if Leandro Trossard features from the bench against Manchester United, it’s a significant upgrade, one which could tip the game in Arsenal’s favour. The front three of Gabriel Martinelli, Eddie Nketiah and Bukayo Saka is rather solid and is proven to fire in big games, however, if United’s defence proves tricky, Trossard will more than likely hold the key.

Do you think this is good or bad business from Arsenal?
