Arsenal interested in signing Leicester City full-back to partner Hector Bellerin

A lot of onus is placed on Hector Bellerin in the Arsenal XI, perhaps unfairly. When Stephan Lichtsteiner left the club, it wasn’t a priority for the Arsenal board to sign a replacement, leaving Bellerin with a lot of weight on his shoulders. Of course, Ainsley Maitland-Niles can play in this position but it was by no means natural to him.

That said, it’s positive to see a recent report from the Football Insider. They have claimed that Arsenal are planning a move for Leicester City’s Dennis Gyamfi. The 18-year-old Netherlands international primarily plays as a right-back but given his age, his position could easily be adapted to suit the needs of Mikel Arteta.

I can definitely see why the Gunners are pursuing a move for Gyamfi. In a transfer market which is bound to be uncertain, it makes sense to signal out a few hideen gems which will be available for a cheap price, which is another bonus of signing the Leicester full-back since his contract expires this summer and he is set to leave.

So, it wouldn’t surprise me if this move is done within the next couple of weeks. After all, only personal terms need to be agreed and Arsenal is an attractive destination for any young player. He is bound to get minutes in the starting XI for cup matches, since Bellerin needs a break from time to time.

If Gyamfi arrives this summer, then Arsenal are setting themselves up nicely for the future. They will have William Saliba arriving back to London Colney from loan and with talks emerging about Dayot Upamecano again, it could be a frightening defensive force going forward into the future.
