Arsenal Identify Replacement For Hector Bellerin [Report]

Arsenal v Middlesbrough - Premier League

There has a great deal of speculation over the future of Hector Bellerin.

Throughout the last number of months, Spanish right back Hector Bellerin, has been linked with a move away from Arsenal.

First the Daily Mail reported that Barcelona were willing to make a £30 million bid for the 21 year-old, then both The Times and The Mirror claimed Manchester City were prepared to pay £40 Million for Bellerin.

Although there has been little reported since then, today The Mirror have linked Arsenal with a move for Benfica right back, Nelson Semedo.

Despite not quoting a potential transfer fee, Semedo has been linked with moves to some of Europe’s top clubs in the last twelve months, including Inter Milan and Chelsea.

However, as The Express and Football Italia believe Semedo had a £60 million release clause inserted into a contract that does not expire until 2021, any move for Portuguese right back would not be cheap.

Nevertheless, given the uncertainty surrounding the future of Bellerin, it is no surprise to see Arsenal associated with contingency plans in the event of his departure.
