Arsenal monitored Brighton’s Lamptey as a potential Bellerin successor, but they could be forced to look for other options following the 20-year-old’s season-ending injury.

Brighton defender Tariq Lamptey is set to undergo surgery on a hamstring injury that will now prevent him from playing again this season.

Football.london understands that Arsenal had named Lamptey on a list of potential long-term successors for right-back Hector Bellerin, who has been linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer.

Bellerin was convinced by Mikel Arteta to remain in north London last year, and while he has enjoyed a mostly positive campaign, there have been continual rumblings that he could return to the Nou Camp at the end of the season.

Lamptey’s injury, then, is a major spanner in the works.

The Athletic reports that the 20-year-old will miss the remainder of the season, but should return to training before the summer.

That could be enough to put the Gunners off from investing heavily in the young defender as a Bellerin replacement.

Max Aarons

Any discussion of potential right-backs that Arsenal could target starts with Max Aarons.

The Norwich City youngster impressed in his lone season in the Premier League with the Canaries last year, and while he was linked with a move away, he remained with Daniel Farke’s side in the Championship this season.

Norwich are currently flying high at the top of the table and Aarons has been a huge part of their success.

The 21-year-old has made 35 league appearances for Norwich this season, scoring one goal.

According to WhoScored, he has created 1.4 chances per game, completed 1.3 dribbles per game and wins 1.6 fouls per game.

Leo Dubois

Given that Arsenal may have to look for cheaper options in the summer window given their financial pressures, Lyon’s Leo Dubois may be a potential option.

A little older at 26, Dubois has enjoyed a terrific season for the French side, who are chasing down a Ligue 1 title.

Rasmus Kristensen

RB Salzburg have proven to be exceptional developers of talent. Erling Haaland is the most famous example, of course, but there are plenty of others, including Dayot Upamecano, Dominik Szoboszlai, and Sadio Mane.

And Rasmus Kristensen could be the nest Salzburg graduate.

A 23-year-old Danish right-back who has 19 Bundesliga appearances as Salzburg waltz their way to the Austrian title, Arsenal could do worse than turn to Salzburg and sign the next prospect.
