Five right-backs that could replace Hector Bellerin at Arsenal with Aarons and Inter Milan ace Hakimi transfer options

ARSENAL could be about to enter the market for a new right-back, with current No2 Hector Bellerin linked with a move away from North London.

The Spaniard, 25, has been a stalwart for the Gunners over the last eight years, making 231 appearances for the club.

He has won three FA Cups during his time at Emirates Stadium.

But according to CBS Sports, that time could be about to come to an end as PSG circle.

SunSport takes a look at who could arrive in the summer to replace the popular defender.


Max Aarons has impressed at Norwich

Norwich star Max Aarons is on the radar of a number of top clubs around Europe.

The Canaries successfully batted off interest from Barcelona last summer, with the LaLiga giants eventually moving for Ajax’s Sergino Dest instead.

Arsenal are seen as contenders to land the £35million-rated 21-year-old when he does finally leave Carrow Road.


Lamptey has kicked on since joining Brighton

One that got away from Chelsea, Tariq Lamptey has been in outstanding form since leaving Stamford Bridge for Brighton in January last year.

A dynamic dribbler with bags of potential, the 20-year-old made his one and only Premier League appearance for the Blues at the Emirates.

The Gunners retain an interest in the England youth international, who will cost significantly more than the £3million that the Seagulls paid Chelsea for his services – particularly after he signed a new contract in January.



Achraf Hakimi could once again be up for grabs

It was quite the coup for Inter Milan to win the race for Achraf Hakimi last summer, given the 22-year-old’s outstanding loan spell at Borussia Dortmund from Real Madrid.

But the Moroccan could be leaving San Siro within a year of joining, with Inter needing to raise funds after being bruised by the coronavirus pandemic.

Hakimi could be available for around £40m, with Arsenal one of a number of clubs still keen.


James Justin has stepped up in the absence of Ricardo Pereira

Adept at covering both full-back positions, James Justin would be a very useful addition for Arsenal.

The former Luton Town star, 22, has covered well for Ricardo Pereira when asked to this term.

Pereira’s return could see the Foxes willing to cash in on Justin, although his recent cruciate ligament injury complicates matters.

Getting a deal out of Leicester might be tricky for Arsenal though, with the sour taste of their failed bid for Jamie Vardy still lingering.


Kyle Walker has lost his starting berth at Manchester City

Arsenal know all about Kyle Walker, having seen him score the winner against them in a North London derby all the way back in 2011.

This is a move that would incense the Gunners’ rivals, but could be feasible.

Walker, 30, is obviously familiar with the area, and has lost his place at Manchester City to Joao Cancelo.
