Arsenal are in the market to sign Real Betis and Barcelona co- owned right-back Emerson Royal this summer, according to reports.
The Gunners will likely sacrifice Hector Bellerin at the end of the season. The Spaniard appears ready to join PSG in a deal that could generate 25m euro.
And it appears that Edu has identified Emerson as his number one replacement for veteran Bellerin.
As per Fijaches Arsenal’s technical director has already made enquiries over the 22-year-old. He moved to Spain with Betis in January 2019. However, as part of his €12.9m arrival, Barcelona secured the option to sign the player for €6m this summer under an unusual co-ownership deal.
But with Barcelona’s finances stressed, it seems unlikely that they will adopt that option. As a result, they claim the Gunners could pitch in to lure him out of Betis for a bargain fee.
Also the Gunners are keen on Borussia Monchengladbach forward Alassane Plea. The same Spanish outlet claims the once-capped France striker has been identified as a successor to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang or Alexander Lacazette.
Plea has 35 goals in 105 games for Gladbach following his arrival from Nice in 2018. Capable of playing across the frontline, Plea would likely cost in the region of €35m.
However, that cost will be offset by the sale of either Aubameyang or Lacazette. The duo both face uncertain futures at the club.
