Arsenal targeting 22-year-old Brazilian as Bellerin replacement

Arsenal is targeting Real Betis full-back, Emerson Royal as the future of Hector Bellerin remains unclear.

Bellerin remains one of Arsenal’s important players, but the Spaniard hasn’t been on his best form recently.

He has seen competition for his position increase with the return of Calum Chambers to the team.

The Spaniard has interest from PSG and Barcelona and Arsenal might consider this summer the best time to sell him.

Several clubs have been linked with a move for Royal and Mundo Deportivo has named the Gunners as one of the teams that is monitoring the 22-year-old.

The report says the Gunners have had an eye on his team for some time now as they also have an interest in Guido Rodríguez.

The full-back is owned by Barcelona and Betis jointly who agreed to each pay his former team, Atlético Mineiro, 6million euros for his signature.

The plan is for him to spend two seasons at Betis which ends after this campaign and the Catalans can then sign him permanently for 9m euros if they wish to.

That obviously creates a little complication in terms of signing him, however, with the financial state of Barca it is very possible that Arsenal could do a deal that would see him at the Emirates next season.

    Off-topic but just saw Ødegaard twist his ankle on international duty and signaling that he has to come off. Hope it’s not long term.

    I’m a huge fan of this guy. He’s powerful, great in the tackle, quick, skillful and can pick a pass.
    He’d be my ideal replacement at RB.

  3. Declan says:

    Yet another player we are linked with and won’t be signing.

  4. Loose Cannon says:

    HB is classified as a home grown player, so preferably we should look for a home grown replacement. Chambers is not is 38 game player, neither can Cedric play 38 games . My pick would be Max Aarons if the transfer fee is right.

    😂😂😂…this guy to replace Hector??? Hard pass!!!
    He’s so not EPL quality. If we can’t upgrade on what we have got then what’s the point. Quit hyper this average la Liga defender,uu honestly think Manuel would use him if Betis had the funds to buy quality players??Please!

      @ Trent Madagua . I dont think you know him at all . HE is better than all our right backs , even Barcelona see him as their future right back as he is partly owned by Barcelona as well .I personally will jump at the trade .
