Part of the reason why Leandro Trossard works to well at Arsenal and his transition was so smooth is because Brighton and Arsenal both share similar tactical needs. This is no surprise, given that De Zerbi and Arteta are two of the finest minds within the sport currently.

One similarity which Brighton and Arsenal share is their dependence of wide-play. Therefore, Ferguson has become accustomed to receiving crosses. Not only this, but he is accustomed to dropping deeper to allow for full-backs to overlap, if and when necessary.

The most attacking full-back for Arsenal currently is Ben White, who interestingly left Brighton just before Ferguson left. Finally, he might get his chance to play with Ferguson, who would allow for the excellent overlapping ability of Ben White and allow for the full-back to play a variety of different crosses to Ferguson.
