Arsenal wants to replace Bellerin with Everton man

Arsenal is set to sanction the departure of Hector Bellerin this summer after a decade together.

The former Barcelona youngster joined the Gunners as a 16-year-old from the Catalans in 2011 and he has developed into one of the finest right-backs in Europe.

He struggled for playing time towards the end of the last season with Mikel Arteta favouring Calum Chambers to start ahead of him.

It seems the manager was preparing for life after the fullback and it has now been revealed that the Gunners have a target to replace him in the long term.

Todofichajes says Arsenal expects to sell him in this transfer window and they have made Everton man, Jonjoe Kenny a target to replace him.

Kenny spent the last campaign on loan at Celtic and he made a good impression on the Gunners.

The report says Everton’s plan is to make him a key member of their squad for the upcoming campaign.

However, if any club shows interest in him as Arsenal has done, they would sell him.

Kenny is just 24 and Mikel Arteta would feel the full-back is at the perfect age that he can mould him to achieve what he wants from his right-backs.

    Can’t be true. Kenny had a mare of a season last year on loan with Celtic. Not a bad defender but an unadventurous right back. A promising early career which has come off the rails recently, Absulutely not a swashbuckler and having to choose I would keep Bellerin.
    Confident its his agent starting the rumours!

    All I know is if White, Lokonga and now Kenny represent the bulk of our incoming business, this will go down as one of the most tone deaf windows in recent memory, which is saying a lot considering Wenger’s propensity to not properly address obvious NEEDS time and time again…if we fail to shore up our midfield with at least one proven creative entity, this will be another incredibly long and anxiety-ridden season, especially if we sell off some of our best, more youthful assets like Mavro, Saliba and Willock

    How stupid once again, selling Hector Bellerin, for someone not as good, Arsene Wenger tried to keep his best player
    Going worse each day
