‘Big upgrade on Bellerin’ – Arsenal target £15M rated right back

According to recent reports, Arsenal are tipped to be keeping an eye on £15million rated Ajax right-back Noussair Mazraoui.

Bellerin has arguably been one of Arsenal’s least impressive players this season, coming under pressure for his performances throughout the campaign.

He has also been Arsenal’s first choice right back for the past five years and has been dropping below par performances for the past two seasons.

He was hit with an horrible injury he suffered this time last year, but either way something has to be done at the position.

Recent reports has suggested that Arsenal will focus their attention on Moroccan right-back Mazraoui, who they put down as a promising prospect in both attack and defence.

“The 23-year-old isn’t explosively quick, but he is an intelligent one to one defender, who stands in the tackle and has the size to be resilient. In possession, he’s brilliant, creating overlaps with quick clever passes in tight areas, but also carrying the ball with real finesse. Mazroui is also six-foot-tall and well tooled for the Premier League. We think he’d be an immediate upgrade on Bellerin.” Tifo Football suggested.

The arrival of Mazroui at Arsenal will ensure healthy competition at right back. Given the transfer can be completed for a fee as low as £15million, this should be a no-brainer for Arsenal.
