Arsenal fans wonder what will happen to Bellerin following Lichtsteiner arrival

When a new player is welcomed into a football club, it would be natural for first-team members to feel slightly nervous about their own positions.

Hector Bellerin was a favourite within the Arsenal fanbase when he penned a long-term contract in 2016, but last season, the right-back struggled to impress.

In total, the Spaniard, who is valued at £36m by Transfermarkt, started 45 games in all competitions, including 34 in the Premier League.

During that time, Bellerin scored three goals and created five assists, but his defensive qualities were lacking numerous times across the campaign.

Stephan Lichtsteiner arrived at the Emirates on Tuesday, officially becoming Unai Emery’s first signing since taking over from Arsene Wenger.

The Switzerland international predominantly plays as a right-back, but can also push up and play on the right side of midfield.

Lichtsteiner is an experienced figure at the age of 34 having played for the likes of Lille, Lazio and Juventus.

Most Arsenal fans think that the new signing will provide decent competition for Bellerin, and others think that the Spaniard is at risk of being pushed out.
