Brilliant £35 million defender to replace Bellerin at Arsenal amid PSG transfer speculation?
Reports have claimed that Arsenal could make a move for Tariq Lamptey amid speculation that Hector Bellerin wants to leave.
Bellerin has been that has been at Arsenal for many seasons now and is one player that fans have both become frustrated with and happy to see back in the squad on a weekly basis playing the game he loves.
He was once electric, sharp, fast. And he was professional, dedicated, familiar and one of their own. He looked destined to be a top player, if not world-class, and that right-Back slot has been his to lose for many seasons now.
However, he is coming towards the back-end of his top-level playing days in the Premier League, and reports have now suggested that he is keen to leave the club and make a transfer move to PSG, and the Football.London website have claimed that Arsenal may now make a move for Lamptey
The 20-year-old has been a revelation on the south coast this season having left Chelsea for first-team football, and is easily considered to be one of the best attacking defenders in the Premier League.
Brighton are being smart by handing him a new contract, in hope that they can convince the right-back that he should stay at the club, but also because clubs will have to pay more in the future to get a deal done.
He has that drive, pace, speed and quality that once made Bellerin one of the very best in the business and he is still young enough to be seen as a great long-term investment.
Look, if the reports are true and Bellerin is all set to leave the club, then we are pretty sure that fans would love to see Lamptey signed as his immediate replacement in the summer.
