Arsenal want a right-back

Arsenal are on the lookout for possible right-backs this summer.

Is highly likely that Hector Bellerin will leave the club in the current summer window has been linked to the number of teams including PSG, Barcelona and Real Betis.

Mikel Arteta will want a player that could do both jobs in the offensive and defensive thirds of the pitch, in addition to adding experience to the side due to the loss of David Luiz.

One of the players that are on Arsenal’s radar is Lille’s Zeki Celik.

Celik is set to join up for the Turkish national side after winning the Ligue 1 title, and play at the European Championships.

The Celik situation

Simon Collings broke the story at the London Standard but spoke in more detail on the Arsenal YouTube channel The Gooner Talk.

Simon explained his thoughts about Celik and the fact that a good season in France in addition to his cheap price was the reason for Arsenal’s interest.

“I think the first thing to say about Arsenal’s interest in Zeki Celik is they are not the only club interested in the Lille right back. As you can imagine after an impressive season in Lille, who of course won the title, lots of clubs are looking at Celik,” he said.

“I think that’s the case for any team looking for a right sided full back, he is someone who is on their shortlist and that certainly goes for Arsenal.

“Expectation at the club is that Hector Bellerin will leave. There’s interest at the moment from Real Betis, but slight fear they don’t have the financial power to complete a deal for Bellerin. But Bellerin most likely looks like he will be leaving the club which means Arsenal need a right back.

“Celik emerged as an option that the club are interested in and someone they could push ahead with a deal for. As for a price point, you’re looking around €15 million. This is what it’s going to take to get him out of Lille, which is a pretty good fee even in this Covid market, which has seen fees go down and become much less than they were, that is a good price for a player who has impressed this season France.”
