Leandro Trossard looks set to be a player whose name will dominate the rest of the transfer window.
The forward appears intent on leaving the south coast this month, with Tottenham keen on him.
The Seagulls recently extended his contract by another year to avoid losing him for free in the summer.
But now, the Belgian is trying to force an exit and Roberto De Zerbi is less than impressed...
De Zerbi on Trossard: “He knows my opinion”
De Zerbi has revealed that Trossard will not be part of his squad to face Liverpool.
Brighton host the Reds in a crucial Premier League clash on Saturday.
But the Italian coach feels the 28-year-old’s behavior has not been good enough and he has been omitted from the squad.
De Zerbi told the media: “Leandro isn’t in the list of players for tomorrow. He knows my opinion.
“If he wants to play with me, he has to work hard, he has to run and he has to be in the right way.”
Now, Trossard will have to wait for clubs to firm up their interest in him.
Tottenham looks to be the most likely next step for him, at this stage.
