Boskamp hails improving Arsenal, Everton target Trossard

Former Stoke City boss Johan Boskamp has no doubts about the quality of Genk star Leandro Trossard.

The free-scoring midfielder is a target for Arsenal and Everton ahead of the summer market.

And ex-Standard Liege coach Boskamp said, “It may sound strange, but Trossard has become much more mature since (Alejandro) Pozuelo left (for Toronto FC).

"(Philippe) Clement also made him important and gave him the captain's armband. Given him responsibilities. And then he proves it completely, causing Trossard to grow. Moreover, and he does much better now than in the beginning, he is always tackling. Even when he is going to play between the lines. Where it used to be Pozuelo who often won the ball."
