Following Graham Potter’s appointment as Chelsea manager, Brighton star Leonardo Trossard has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.

Trossard is uninterested in any speculation and has shut down any links with Chelsea for the main time.

The Brighton man however warned that if he does consider a move to Chelsea, it won’t be to sit on the bench.

When asked by Het Niuewsblad about a likely move to Chelsea, Trossard said: “I feel very good. We had a super good start with Brighton.

“I have evolved tremendously. I now know how Premier League works. I’ve grown tremendously in that. Confidence, mentally, physically, … I have become better.

“I have mastered the tricks now. Our coach did leave for Chelsea now but speculations about me following him make no sense.

“If the opportunity arises, I want to go. But I want to play and not sit on the bench.”
