France Football. Arsenal have made an approach for Napoli defender

After Hector Bellerin’s injury, Arsenal are looking for a replacement and according to France Football, that could be Napoli defender Kévin Malcuit.

Malcuit is Unai Emery’s priority at right-back, a player who cost €11m this summer just gone in a deal that saw the player move from Lille to Napoli.

The defender, whose contract runs until 2022, has started in 12 games and has one assist in his account.

The report says that Arsenal have already made an approach for the 27 year old but they will face difficulties in convincing the Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis.
