Championship sides Blackburn Rovers and Bristol City are planning moves to sign Arsenal academy defender Ryan Alebiosu, according to a report.
Football Insider claim Arsenal are open to offers for Ryan Alebiosu this summer, and Championship Blackburn Rovers and Bristol City are both planning to submit one.
Though injury disrupted his first loan spell in senior football, Alebiosu has impressed with Crewe Alexandra when he’s been able to make it onto the pitch. Now that he’s fit again, the 20-year-old could make a good addition to a Championship side.
The suggestion that Arsenal will listen to offers isn’t a surprising one either.
The Gunners have quite a few youth right-backs, with Brooke Norton-Cuffy one of the standouts, Zak Swanson consistently in the Premier League squad, and 17-year-old Reuell Walters looking capable of stepping up to whatever task he’s set.
Mikel Arteta may be lacking a top-quality, consistently fit, and experienced right-back, but he’s certainly not lacking quantity in the position.
If Blackburn Rovers and Bristol City are ready to make a serious move for Alebiosu, it seems probable Arsenal will consider it.
