Arsenal are looking increasingly likely to part ways with Hector Bellerin this summer, according to respected journalist, Fabrizio Romano.
Bellerin has been linked with a move away from The Emirates for a number of months now. Both in the summer and in January, Bellerin was said to be wanted on the continent, with the likes of Barcelona and PSG both having shown interest.
But the Spaniard remained in North London and has been an important cog for Mikel Arteta this term. However, Romano, speaking via this Twitter account yesterday, believes Bellerin now has a ‘huge chance’ of leaving Arsenal.
There are ‘huge chances’ for Hector Bellerin to leave Arsenal in the summer. Leonardo wanted him at PSG one year ago but there was no agreement between the two clubs. Now it’d be an open race – #AFC won’t make any discount. 🔴🇪🇸 #transfers

Bellerin is said to earn around the £110k-a-week mark with Arsenal, according to Spotrac. He still has a couple of years to run on that contract, meaning the Gunners could command a decent fee for their man.
The 26-year-old has made over 230 appearances for Arsenal since his debut as a teenager. Barring a short eight game spell with Watford, Bellerin has played his entire career with the Gunners thus far.

Without sounding too harsh, Bellerin is only a right back in a world where we seem to have a plethora of them, especially in England.
For that reason, Arsenal might see Bellerin as someone who can indeed leave the club with minimal impact on the first XI. Yes, he’s a talented player, but if they can bring a good fee in, then it’s a deal worth considering.
