Leandro Trossard "I’m really excited to get started" at Arsenal.

Leandro Trossard believes he can improve further under Mikel Arteta

Leandro Trossard has revealed that he is eager to help the club's supporters “achieve their dreams” after putting pen to paper at Arsenal football club.

The Belgian international moved to the Emirates Stadium from Brighton & Hove Albion having netted seven times in 16 Premier League games so far in the 2022-23 campaign.

“I’m really excited to get started,” he said in his first interview with “This is a big club and I’m ready to show the fans what I can do. Everyone has seen how well we’re doing already and I’m here to help achieve their dreams - including myself.

“I’m going to take it day by day, work hard and try to help the team to achieve their goals. [I want to] get better as well. I know the manager is a great coach and I hope to be involved in doing great things and getting better as a player in every aspect.

“I’m really excited to see the fans in the stadium. I hope I can give you my all. I want to try and create as many magic moments as possible, and hopefully we can celebrate together.”

The 28-year-old attacker added: “They [Edu, Arteta, and co] told me they really like me as a player, that I would really suit the system and how they want to play. It helps me that I’m versatile and that I can play in different positions. They’re looking forward to working with me and vice versa. I’m really excited to work with them and I think Mikel is a top coach.

“I like to be in the pocket behind the striker. On the wings, I can explore myself as well. I’m comfortable in either of those positions but if I were to choose, behind the striker - but it all depends on the system.

“I think I’m good in 1v1s. I’m composed in the box, so if I get chances, I can finish them off. I can hopefully help the team to win tough games - I’m great in tight spaces. I’m quite experienced as well, so I hope I can bring that to the team as well.”
