Arsenal are interested in signing another right-back despite the success of summer signing Takehiro Tomiyasu.



Tomiyasu joined the club from Bologna on deadline day, and he has excelled for them with his aerial presence.

Despite this, the Gunners are being touted to land another right-back that can provide more in the attacking scheme of things.

According to Fichajes, Norwich City's Max Aarons, Leicester City's James Justin and Brighton's Tariq Lamptey are on their radar.

The north London giants currently have Cedric Soares, Calum Chambers and Ainsley Maitland-Niles as back-up options.

However, Maitland-Niles has been touted to leave soon. He may push for an exit when the transfer window reopens in January.

The futures of Chambers and Cedric are also under question. The Gunners may recoup funds from their sales for a new right-back.

There may not be any spending at the turn of the year, and a new purchase could be delayed until the end of the campaign.
