According to reports from The Athletic, Arsenal are keen to sign RB Leipzig defender Tyler Adams in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners will be looking to offload several high-earning first-team players to make space for new arrivals.

Arsenal are looking to bolster their full-back options this summer and have earmarked the United States international as a potential option.

The 22-year-old made 27 appearances last season in the Bundesliga, where he bagged one goal and one assist for the club.

He is a versatile young player who is capable of play both as a right-back and as a central midfielder. He is a good fit for Arteta’s ‘inverted’ system on that flank.

Leipzig are reluctant to lose Adams following the sales of centre-backs Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahima Konate to Bayern Munich and Liverpool.

Arsenal are likely to offload Hector Bellerin this summer, and they will need a replacement.

The Spaniard is set to end his seven-year stay at Arsenal, and a return to Spain is on the cards.

La Liga giants Sevilla are interested, while Europa League winners Villarreal are also keen to secure his signature.

If Bellerin leaves the club, Adams would be a fantastic replacement.
