Hector Bellerin ‘prepared to consider Arsenal exit’ as PSG target right-back

Hector Bellerin is reportedly weighing up his future at Arsenal as Paris Saint-Germain prepare to rekindle their interest in the right-back.

Bellerin, 25, joined the Gunners as a 16-year-old and has amassed 231 appearances for the north London club.

He came close to leaving the Emirates last summer but Arsenal rejected PSG’s €35million (£30m) bid as they held out for a fee closer to €50million (£43m).

Bellerin has continued to play a major role this season and has featured in all but three of Arsenal’s Premier League fixtures.

As vice-captain he has worn the armband on numerous occasions in the absence of skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

But Bellerin is keen on a fresh challenge and is ready to consider leaving Arsenal this summer, according to CBS Sports .

The report adds PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is an admirer of the player, who has two-and-a-half years remaining on his deal.

Bellerin’s academy side Barcelona, as well as at least two clubs in Serie A, are also believed to be monitoring the situation.

Should Arsenal let Bellerin leave this summer? Have your say in the comments.

The Spain international previously hinted he is keen to compete for silverware rather than spend the remaining years of his prime at a club in a transition phase.

Mikel Arteta played a key part in convincing his compatriot and former teammate to stay after they shared FA Cup glory last summer.

But results have not been up to scratch this season and Arsenal’s hopes of qualifying for European football appear to be slim.

The Gunners sit 10th in the Premier League table, 11 points adrift of the top four, having lost three of their last four matches.

Though they have not made a decision on Bellerin’s future, Arsenal have been linked with Norwich right-back Max Aarons and Brighton wing-back Tariq Lamptey this season.
