According to reports, Arsenal have again stirred up their interest in Brighton and Hove Albion’s right-back, Tariq Lamptey.

Lamptey, a product of Chelsea’s famous Cobham academy, parted ways with the Blues over failure to thrust himself in their first team.

He then joined the Seagulls for £3million in 2020 and has thenceforth been starring for the Albion.

The 21-year-old had previously been linked with a switch to the Emirates Stadium in the winter transfer window as a potential replacement for Hector Bellerin.

That said, Arsenal have set their sights again on the England youth international as Bellerin has now been loaned out to Real Betis while Ainsley Maitland-Niles is poised to join Jose Mourinho’s side, Roma.

Meanwhile, this is not the first time Arsenal will be poised to raid Brighton & Hove Albion as they have first signed Ben White from them in the summer.

And what a good news for Arsenal as Duncan Castles, a transfer expert revealed that Brighton are glad to sell the player if the club is ready to meet the asking price!

Castles also added that Lamptey is available at the right price.

Castles said as quoted by Metro: “What you have here is Arsenal, who had an interest in Lamptey when he burst onto the scene before that difficult injury that you referred to.”

“They are looking again to sign him and exploring the parameters of the deal. I think Lamptey is an exceptionally attacking full-back…”
