Arsenal Turn To 22 Year Old USA International As They Pursue Bellerin Repalcement

Arsenal are weighing up a possible move for RB Leipzig right-back Tyler Adams, according to The Athletic‘s Gunners correspondent James McNicholas.

The London club are keen on finding a replacement for Hector Bellerin, who is likely to leave the Emirates this summer, and the American international is one of the candidates being considered.

Adams’ adaptability is thought to be a key attraction, with the 22-year-old able to play as a fullback and as a central midfielder, with manager Mikel Arteta needing more flexibility in his system.


However, the likelihood of prising the player away from Leipzig appears to be pretty low at the moment, with the Bundesliga club keen not to sell any more of their star names.

They have already sold Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahima Konate to Bayern Munich and Liverpool respectively, while Marcel Sabitzer is also expected to be offloaded, having not signed a new contract. Adams, in contrast, has four years remaining on his current deal at the Red Bull Arena.
