Paris Saint Germain will make an official bid for Hector Bellerin in the coming days, according to Fabrizio Romano in an interview with AFTV.
The French club’s sporting director, Leonardo, is in talks with Arsenal and the Bellerin’s agent. PSG’s head coach, Thomas Tuchel, greatly appreciates the Spanish full back as does Leonardo. They believe he is fully equipped to flourish for them and think he is looking for a new challenge after spending his entire senior career at Arsenal.
Bellerin is believed to be the top right back target for the French champions at the moment. They are likely to make a move for him in the next few days.
Head coach Mikel Arteta wants the Spaniard to stay but if a suitable bid is made by PSG, the Gunners will be tempted to cash in on the player as it will help them pursue their primary transfer targets.
Arsenal would still have two options at right back if Bellerin were to leave. Ainsley Maitland Niles looks set to stay at the club and would presumably become Arsenal’s first choice right back with Cedric Soares as his backup.
The 25 year old joined Arsenal from Barcelona in 2011. He has made 205 appearances for the North London side and is currently the vice captain of the team. He is known to be a big presence in the dressing room and played an important role in getting the Arsenal squad to agree to the wage cut earlier in the year due to the pandemic.
