Some Arsenal fans would like to see Hector Bellerin replaced with Achraf Hakimi after reports from Mundo Deportivo have stated that the north London club are interested in signing the Real Madrid man in the upcoming summer transfer window.
According to the article, London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are also interested in a potential move, alongside PSG, Juventus and Bayern Munich.
Hakimi is valued at 54 million euros (roughly £47 million) as per Transfermarkt, and is currently on loan at Borussia Dortmund. The 21-year old has scored seven goals and provided 10 assists in 37 appearances in all competitions this season, but only seven of them have been at right-back.
Some AFC supporters have urged the Gunners to replace Bellerin with Hakimi after hearing the reports. Comparing the two men in their respective domestic leagues this campaign, the Moroccan international averages more shots, key passes and dribbles per match, according to Whoscored, although that is likely due to the fact he has played a more advanced position than normal.
These Gooners have called for the transfer to go through, leaving Bellerin to potentially exit the club:
yes and kick @HectorBellerin out, he has no pace anymore and too weak in any duel

No, he will not. He’s not a serious footballer, he’s more interested in fashion, and how can you take a footballer that has decided to have a vegan diet serious? Hope the Hakimi links were true, or Arteta needs to convince AMN to play RB. Bellerin is not good enough. https://t.co/UrzXqtssw1
