Bayern Munich is reportedly monitoring the developments of Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin.
The defensive overhaul at Bayern Munich is set to be completed this summer. The German Champions have enough options in central back and left-back position, but there is a serious need of another right-back to provide cover for current right back Benjamin Pavard.
Hector Bellerin is the latest right-back linked with a move to Bayern Munich.
According to reports in England , Bayern Munich are also showing interest in Bellerin. The German club will face tough competition from Paris Saint-Germain for the Spaniard as reports in France clams that the French club has already made an opening bid of £30m for the defender.
Bellerin has been a regular player for Arsenal under Mikel Arteta.However, the English club would be looking to raise funds for other transfers since they are well stacked in the right-back position. With Maitland Niles and Cedric Soares still available. Bayern Munich will have to move fast if they want to sign Bellerin.
The Spanish full-back had endured a difficult couple of seasons with injuries since breaking into the senior team at Arsenal. His form dipped after recovering from serious injuries, but he started to find a way back to his best form under Arteta this season.
Bellerin is an attacking full-back who provides attacking threats in the final third with his darting runs and good passing range. His immense pace helps him to make recovery tackles. There is a lot of scope of improvement in the defensive aspect of his game, but his best years are ahead of him as he turned 25 this year and age still seems to be on his side.
Bayern Munich would ideally like a cheaper option in the right back position. Bellerin could prove to be an expensive signing if two clubs get into a bidding war. However, the Spaniard has the potential to be a valuable full-back for the German champion. It remains to be seen whether the initial interest materializes to a better offer than PSG in the coming days.
The need for a new right-back was shown during the knockout rounds of the Champions League last month. Joshua Kimmie delivered top performances in the absence of Pavard, but he is a valuable asset in the midfield. An attacking full-back on the right side of defense will also allow Pavard to play in his preferred central defensive position next season.
