Arsenal to compete with Bayern Munich over €15 million Noussair Mazraoui to replace Hector Bellerin

Bellerin has Betis option

The future of Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin appears to lie away from Arsenal.

The Spaniard has been linked previously with moves away but it seems the upcoming summer window will be the moment his time at the club comes to an end.

Clubs such as PSG and Barcelona had been touted but it seems his stock has dropped after the past campaign.

La Liga side Real Betis are a club credited with interest but ultimately Bellerin will have final say on his move of choice.

Arsenal target Mazraoui

Arsenal’s search for Bellerin’s replacement has reached a new target it seems.

Ajax’s Moroccan international Noussair Mazraoui has become available for a very accomplishable fee.

First reported by Moroccan outlet DM Sport, Arsenal have entered the race for Mazraoui whose current deal expires at the end of next season.

Further Moroccan outlets have suggested that a fee in the region of 10-15 million would be enough to sign Mazraoui.

Bayern Munich are supposedly the other team in the race for Mazraoui who present as a much clearer option to win trophies. The Bavarian side want to add a right-back to the team with the future of Benjamin Pavard possibly in a more central area of the defence.

Mike Verweij of Dutch outlet De Telegraaf revealed the plans for Mazraoui to leave the club:

“Mazraoui is on its way to the exit. He has the same agent as Hakim Ziyech, who was one of the big earners in Amsterdam. But the time of mega salaries is over due to corona. Of course Ajax will continue to pay a lot to some players, but in some contract negotiations it is now said: until here and no further. ”

“If you can’t figure it out then, selling is the best. I think Ajax would like to come out with Mazraoui, but not for the amounts that are now on the table. ”

Whether Arsenal turn out to be his destination is yet to be confirmed by England-based media.
