Bellerin and Cedric Soares (on loan from Southampton) are currently the specialist right-backs at the manager’s disposal but the likes of Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Calum Chambers (out injured for the long-term) have also featured in the defensive position.
Soares arrived from the Saints carrying a knee injury and his prospects of a permanent contract may depend on his performances when the season resumes after the suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Bellerin, meanwhile, has been in-and-out of the starting XI this year and prior to the coronavirus shutdown, a torn groin issue is understood to have hampered his crossing into the box.
Still, he has more than three years remaining on his existing deal with the north London side and the board would surely give him another season to prove that he can revive the form from a few years ago.
