Leandro Trossard is under no illusions about the size of the task facing him at Albion.

But he is not going to shrink from the challenge.

It has nothing to do with being pretty small - Trossard is around 5ft 8ins.

The tall order is the jump from the top flight in Belgium to the Premier League.

Trossard knows it will be tougher, much tougher.

Record signing Alireza Jahanbakhsh (below) discovered that in his first season moving from the top flight in the Netherlands.

The Argus: Trossard, like Jahanbakhsh at AZ Alkmaar, scored and set up goals for Genk for fun as they won the title.

Twenty-two, with 11 assists, across 47 appearances in all competitions.

His expectations are lower now that he is moving up a level.

"I think it will be more physical," Trossard said. "Also, the tempo will be faster. You have top players in every team, so the decisions you make will need to be faster.

"Every team you have competition so you have to deal with it. Also, there are a lot of games. You cannot play them all. We will see but I am not scared to fight for a place in the team and also to help the other players.

"I think mostly in the last part of the pitch I am really good but also to take the right decisions, two touches, one touch, I think that's the thing I can improve a lot now because the tempo will be higher.

"I'm happy if I can play a lot of minutes and prove myself, help the team to achieve their goals. If I can score some goals or have some assists that would be great for me but the first thing is to have some minutes and help the team.

"I think they just want to be a team that are stable in the league. That's why I am here to help them achieve that goal."

The Argus: Trossard (above) will be playing for a head coach simultaneously launching his own Premier League adventure.

The 24-year-old was impressed by Graham Potter when he spoke to him, initially while on international duty with Belgium.

"I met up with the coach during the national team and had a good chat with him," Trossard said. "After that we spoke again and now I am a Brighton player.

"I know with the new coach he is really addicted to football and wants to show himself also in the Premier League. We have a lot of quality in the team.

"Maybe last season they showed not too much but I am sure we can achieve something with this team."

Trossard's role in that aim is likely to be primarily on the left-wing. He has left Genk, his boyhood club, with a heavy heart but sensing the time is right to grow his career further.

"I can play on both wings, number ten also, but I think it's more a case of playing as a winger and coming inside like I have (at Genk)," Trossard said. "We will see what the coach does.

"The most important thing, the next step in my career, is to play more minutes in a bigger league and I think Brighton is a really good club to do that. I can develop myself and help the team achieve their goals.

"It's a new adventure for me. It's not too easy to leave but I think it's the right step now and the right moment to go. I had the title last year and I think it's a good time to leave Genk and go to a big club like Brighton in the Premier League and prove myself now."

Trossard also expects the move to Albion to enhance his international aspirations.

The newly wed father-of-one has played for his country at every age level from under-16s to under-21s. He has been in senior squads under Roberto Martinez but is yet to make his debut.

"I think if you see the international team everyone is playing in a big league with a big club so it's not easy to compare with those players," he said.

"I need to prove myself in a bigger league I think and it will help me to play at Brighton."
