Arsenal in surprise link with out of favour Everton defender Kenny

Jonjoe Kenny

 

Arsenal have emerged as a potential landing spot for Everton defender Jonjoe Kenny this summer, according to reports.

Bellerin to move on?

The right-back spot 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 for 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.

Out of favour Toffee eyed?

The latest name pushed as a possible reinforcement to Mikel Arteta’s squad, though, marks something of a surprise.

As per a report from the Daily Mail, amid a deep dive into Arsenal’s plans for the transfer market, those in a position of power in North London are taking into consideration a move for Jonjoe Kenny.

Everton full-back Kenny spent the 2nd-half of this past season out on loan with Celtic, but largely struggled to impress, en route to just nine league appearances.

As such, with the 24-year-old having lined out for Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton on only eight occasions before his eventual winter departure, links to Arsenal have resulted in more than a few raised eyebrows.

The Mail add that Kenny is ‘being discussed’ by the Gunners brass, albeit with the aforementioned Celik also name-dropped as a target.

 

Is something special happening at Arsenal this transfer window or is it just talk?
