Arsenal have been linked with a move for Napoli right back Elseid Hysaj.

  • Hysaj could be a replacement for Hector Bellerin
  • Chelsea are also reportedly interested

The Napoli right back could be brought as a replacement for Hector Bellerin, who’s been linked with Barcelona, that’s according to Balkan Web, who cite Talk Sport. In their report, they refer to a statistical comparison made between Hysaj and Bellerin.

Hysaj is said to be a suitable replacement for Bellerin due to playing in a possession-based system at Napoli and possessing a high pass-completion rate.

The 23-year-old has also been linked with Chelsea.

Any interest Arsenal have in a right back this summer would depend entirely on Bellerin’s future.

Barcelona appear to be making every attempt to unsettle the Spaniard and bring him to the Camp Nou.

However, Arsenal have no interest in selling and Bellerin, it seems, is happy to stay.

Should Arsenal end up looking for a right back, Hysaj could well be high up on the list, along with Monaco’s Djibril Sidibe.
