With Granit Xhaka already in the bag, Arsenal fans are hopeful Wenger will finally change his transfer policy and finally get us what we need to actually mount a title challenge. However, we could lose one of our best players this summer according to reports. Hector Bellerin is believed to be at the top of Barcelona shopping list since the departure of veteran Brazilian defender Dani Alves to Juventus.
It is widely believed that Arsenal will do everything in their power and might to keep hold of the young Spaniard and prevent him from returning to boyhood club Barcelona, but according to reports in the Daily Star, the North London club have been linked with Sam Byram as a possible replacement should Bellerin depart the Emirate.
Bringing a 22-year-old Sam Byram who lacks top-flight experience to the Emirates Stadium would have to be seen as somewhat of a gamble by Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger The defender played just four times in the English Premier League after signing for West Ham United back in January, with two of those outings coming as a substitute.
Bellerin, on the other hand, missed only two league matches on his way to securing a place in the PFA Team of the Year. This shows that defender Debuchy and not Hector Bellerin will leave the Emirate stadium, most especially because Jenkinson is set for a long injury lay off. It’s better keeping an experienced player that bringing an inexperienced one.
