​Arsenal identify Brighton youngster Lamptey as Bellerin replacement

Arsenal are interested in signing Tariq Lamptey from Brighton as they plan for life without Hector Bellerin.

The Spaniard wants out of north London this summer, and is being linked with a move to PSG.

And according to football.london, if Bellerin does leave this summer, Arsenal would go after Lamptey as a replacement.

The 20-year-old is one of the brightest talents in the league, and has impressed hugely since arriving at Brighton from Chelsea last January.

Lamptey is top of the pile for crosses into the box, interceptions and fouls won within the Brighton team.

He recently signed a new contract with the Seagulls until 2025.

This means it could take a significant fee to lure Lamptey away from the AMEX.
