Arsenal to swoop for Celik?

Arsenal have identified Lille defender Zeki Celik as the potential replacement for Hector Bellerin during the summer transfer window.

The Turkey international had a superb 2020/21 campaign with Les Dogues, who beat Paris Saint-Germain to the Ligue 1 title.

He has another two years remaining on his contract, but Standard Sport claims that he could be on the move this summer.

The Gunners are interested in the right-sided defender, with Bellerin expected to leave them in the upcoming transfer window.

Celik has impressed with his overlapping runs, while he is also solid at the back. He averaged two tackles per game last season.

The 24-year-old could be available for just £13m, but the Gunners are expected to face plenty of competition to sign him.

Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are also interested in the right-back while Inter Milan are monitoring him.

Inter could make an approach for the full-back if they sanction the sale of Achraf Hakimi, who is on the radar of Paris Saint-Germain.
