Bellerin to move on?
The right-back spot of course represents something of a problem area at the Emirates ahead of next season.
This comes with the future of long-time first-choice Hector Bellerin having been thrown up in the air, on the back of another disappointing year on the part of the Spaniard in North London.
In fact, as per a number of reliable sources, Bellerin – who slipped out of favour under Mikel Arteta over the 2nd-half of the campaign – is ‘ready to part ways’ with the Gunners over the months ahead.

Whilst Bellerin’s exit would actually be welcomed by a large majority of the Arsenal faithful, though, it would also force the club the club’s hand when it comes to the transfer market.
A whole host of right-backs have, in turn, been tipped for a potential Emirates switch this summer, with the likes of Norwich City starlet Max Aarons and Lille talent Zeki Celik rumoured to be under consideration.
Sassuolo star eyed
And, as outlined above, on Monday, yet another name has been added to the rumoured list of targets on the part of Mikel Arteta and co.
The stopper in question? Murt Muldur.
As per a report from The Athletic, Sassuolo star Muldur – who lined out for the hugely underwhelming Turkey outfit at this summer’s European Championships – is being ‘considered’ to fill the spot on the right side of Arsenal’s backline.
The 22-year-old, who can also play on the left, has been scouted by those in a position of power in North London for a full year now, with his versatility a key factor in the Gunners’ interest being piqued.
In turn, an offer for the Turk could well be forthcoming over the weeks ahead, as a hectic summer of ins and outs inches ever closer at the Emirates.
