Arsenal confident of replacing Bellerin with Championship star

Arsenal remains confident of signing Max Aarons from Norwich City when the transfer window reopens.

The Englishman has been on their radar for years now and the Gunners believe it is now time for them to finally get their man.

90mins is reporting that they are prepared to sell Hector Bellerin and bring in a fresh face as their right back.

Bellerin has spent the last decade at the club after they poached him from Barcelona as a 16-year-old.

He has remained a key member of their team, but injuries have troubled him in the last few years and they seem to have affected his performances.

Calum Chambers has been chosen ahead of him in recent games as it appears that Mikel Arteta is now planning for life without him.

The report says the Gunners want to sell him after rebuffing efforts from PSG and Barcelona for his signature in the past.

Their number one target as a replacement for him is Aarons and they are confident that they will sign him even though other top English teams are interested in his signature.

Aarons has just helped the Canaries secure promotion back to the Premier League after their relegation last season and the report says he is valued at £30m.

    I would hope we could sell Bellerin and Soares, for around 25-30m.

    Sell Leno and runarrsson, sign Donnarumma on a free and Ryan for 4m use the rest for other positions

    Keep chambers as back up and use the money to buy a first choice right back

    Release Luiz, bring back Saliba and mavropanos as his replacement.

    Sell Kolasinac and pick up a left back to cover for Tierney, if not use Kolasinac for 1 more year.

    Sell Elneny, Torreira and guendozi
    Release Ceballos and Odegaard
    Bring back AMN, Willock and sign an understudy or competition for ESR.

    Sell Willian and Nketiah keep all the other forwards

    For me 4 signings required
    1st choice keeper
    1st choice right back
    2nd choice left back
    Competition for ESR

    10 players sold and 3 released

      Good point but I’d rather we get an home grown back up keeper even if on loan

      Cedric qualities is a better option as a back up RB

      Omar Richards is available on a free or Rico Henry for LB and they are quality

      The LW is a concern too as much as a CM/DM

    2. John Ibrahim says:

      do you think this is Fifa21?

      selling half the team and expect to win?

      teamwork and communication needs time to build

        IMO, Runar,Elneny, Ceballos, Ode,Eddie are hardly getting game time. Thats 5 fringe players.
        Kolasinac, Torerra, Guendozi,are currently plying their trade outside AFC.Luiz and Willian were never wanted in the first place and question the wisdom in signing them. That makes 10 players not fit for AFC (if one compares the AFC of the past). Cedric is error prone and better if he goes.
        Only Leno and Bellerin are the first team players but they too are too error prone for team whose real intentions would be to challange for the title rather then settle for a top 4.
        In short, this AFC team has 13 players not good enough for a top 4 challange and then fans question Mikel’s credentials. Not to forget that Ozil, Mustafi, Socrates were all there till December hampering the signing of three worthy players.
        No rocket sience, if Atid can figure it out, so can Edu if he is comitted to the AFC cause rater than personal preferences.

    3. Ali Abdalla Said says:

      Good idea but we need to find quality players to replace all the mantioned here and to bring back the others from loans

    4. zackson88 says:

      I would sell AMN and loan willock for one more year. he needs game time

  2. ozziegunner says:

    Max Aarons would be a great acquisition based on his young age, experience in the EPL and the tough Championship and his ability.
    The big question is will Arsenal be able to negotiate a transfer from Norwich City?

  3. Protus Mukenya says:

    Arsenal is a talented team all players are of high standard and world class. Let Arteta improve coaching and the team is OK

  4. Ibrahim Amboso says:

    Release Luiz bring back saliba,sell elneny,Mateo,toreira and prmte Azeez buy box to box mildfilder.back up left back and buy right back.ceballos back to real and Martin then buy diballa and bring draxler and central striker

    1. zackson88 says:

      how about buying the brighton mali midfielder bissouma. he is no nonsense

  5. Smart elijah says:

    Edie,willock and elneny we don’t need them next season and I don’t see them with that competitive spirit just sell them out and bring the players that will fit with the name gunners
    Players that real want to knelt it all
    Please…..

    1. zackson88 says:

      I agree they have failed over and over when given chance

  6. Jeff says:

    Bring guendouzi back in the team as was our best player last season to partner partey to add mobility to our midfield,

    1. Alan Robertson says:

      Totally agree. bring back Quenduzi ARTETA said he would give everyone a chance to prove themselves next season

  7. Grandad says:

    Defensively, Aarons is not so good and he will be over priced.The two best young right backs I have seen this season are James Justin of Leicester and Nathan Patterson of Rangers, who although they are an “institution” continue to struggle financially.I very much doubt if they would turn down an offer of 15m for their 19year old RB who has impressed ex pros to the extent that they are clamouring for Steve Clark to include him in the Scottish pool for the Euros.Josh Doig of Hibs is a very talented young left back who would be an ideal back up for KT , and would cost no more than 2.5m.

  8. Aminu umar aloh says:

    Very gud idear my broder, i am 100% agreed with u but in the front line we need some change, atleast we need one sharp striker that can challenge auba & laca

  9. Nnamani R. O. says:

    Luiz should not be sold.
    Arsenal should try to buy players that are strong and have skill. Because premiership game (EPL) needs a lot of strenght before you can win a match.

  10. jon fox says:

    I have such a low regard for Bellerin the player, as distinct from Bellerin the human being, that I would take almost anyone to replace him. Id like a world class RBobviously but anyone who has even the first idea how to defend and who can head a ball, tackle, mark, stay in position when under threat and not constantly be muscled off the ball would be a better choice than Weedy Bellerin.

  11. Hakan says:

    I dont think bying and bying like we have done for the past years, let the homegrown be the foundation, AMN, willock, saka, Rowe, put holding and Chambers together as they were for the young lions in the defence its about understanding each other,not being the best individual. Then we can spend, big shame we let Martinez go.
    Tierney best leftback for a long time
