Arsenal want Kieran Trippier?

Arsenal are interested in signing Atletico Madrid defender Kieran Trippier and could offer Hector Bellerin in a swap deal.

Bellerin was largely out-of-favour during the second half of last season, and he is expected to be sold this summer.

The Gunners are yet to receive any suitable offers for the Spaniard, and Goal claims that they could use him in a swap deal.

Trippier has been linked with a return to the Premier League, and the Gunners are reportedly keen on the former Spurs man.

It is added that they will propose a swap agreement for the England international with Bellerin heading the other direction.

The right-back has also been linked with Manchester United, who are looking for quality competition to Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The Red Devils were interested in Trippier in January, but cooled their interest after he was banned by FIFA for breaching betting rules.

Trippier has been with Atletico for the past two seasons. He has 12 months left on his contract, and Atletico are keen to extend his stay.
