The 27-year-old remained committed to Brighton when asked about his future, insisting he was focused on his club and the World Cup with Belgium ahead of a departure from Amex Stadium.
He told the BBC: “It’s hard to say anything about that now and it all depends on which club would come.
‘[It will depend on if] I feel good and privately things are going well.

“But I also know how good I am at Brighton, it also looks promising with new coach Roberto De Zerbi.”
He was also asked about Chelsea’s interest in him, and he told Play Sports via sports witness: ‘It is very difficult to answer that. That will have to wait. I’m not on it at all right now.
Brighton and the World Cup are the next goals. Then we’ll see where it ends.’
Chelsea will think they have an advantage in the hunt for Trossard, as his former manager Graham Potter is currently at the helm at Stamford Bridge.

Brighton, however, will not want to lose another of their star players after the big money departures of Ben White, Yves Bissouma, Marc Cucurella and Neal Maupay in the past year.
Although Trossard’s current contract expires at the end of the season, there is an option for the Seagulls to extend it for another year.
This clause could hurt the club’s chances of signing him on a free transfer as he would have to stay with the club for another season.

This means potential candidates for Trossard will have to scrap plans to sign him for free and agree on a transfer fee to Brighton to get him into their squads.
This season, the Belgium international has been instrumental in Brighton’s start to the season, as he scored five goals and provided two assists in his nine Premier League appearances.
He even scored a brilliant hat-trick at Anfield in his side’s 3-3 draw against Liverpool.
