Having announced Tavares and Lokonga, and with Ben White set to be announced soon, Arsenal’s summer transfer window is starting to up in pace.
The next targets seem to be the midfield, however, going on in the background it seems is Arsenal’s pursuit of a right back.
We are still in talks with Inter to try and offload Hector Bellerin and are looking for around £15 million for him.
Some of that money will be put towards a new long-term replacement for Bellerin.
The big question is who will that be? Yesterday the widespread reports were that Sergino Dest had been offered to Arsenal. Yet other reports suggest our top target at right-back is someone else.
According to The Mirror, Arsenal are preparing a move for Norwich City’s young English right-back, Max Aarons.
He was a key part of Norwich’s Championship winning campaign, playing in 45 out of 46 games, registering 2 goals and 2 assists.
From what I’ve seen of him, he is solid, reliable but perhaps has a way to go until he becomes this dazzling right-back who can set the league alight.
That being said I think it would be an improvement on what we’ve got and at just 21, he has so much time to become even better still.
What do you think about this move Gooners?
