Arsenal Set to Bid For Brighton Defender as Hector Bellerin Replacement

It is no surprise that Arsenal are looking for a new right back to replace the PSG-bound Hector Bellerin. Bellerin who as stayed at the club since 2011, wants to leave the club after declining a lucrative deal to keep him at the Emirates. Arsenal scouts are now at the radar of Tariq Lamptey and Inter Milan right back Achraf Hakimi.

According to Fabrizio Romano, senior reporter and specialist in transfers, the Gunners have not made an official bid for the star. However, they're moved to getting the former Chelsea ace before it's late. The youngster has cemented his place at Brighton since signing for them in January 2020. Reports also claim they may sign Man City defender Kyle Walker who has been a victim of lack of playing time.

Arsenal Chief Edu is said to have a shortlist of favourite players he may consider signing in the summer. One of the stars is Hakimi who has been limited to playing time at Inter. The young Moroccan wants to exit the club for lack of playing time under Antonio Conte. He has been versatile in right side positions of the pitch and Arsenal view him as an additional bonus to their current squad.
