Mauricio Pochettino’s PSG remain as interested as ever in signing Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin, according to the Daily Star.
Bellerin has been linked with a move away from Arsenal for some time now. The likes of PSG and Barcelona were both said to be keen in January, and it appears that interest hasn’t slid away just yet.
The Daily Star claim that while Barca may have cooled their own interest, PSG remain just as keen as they always were, and could well launch a summer bid to land the Spanish right-back.
Bellerin, who is still just 26, has been a mainstay for the Gunners over the course of a number of seasons. But with Mikel Arteta planning another summer rebuild job, Bellerin could fetch some much needed cash into the Arsenal coffers.
PSG are one of the teams who can afford to land the full-back with considerable ease. His apparent £110k-a-week wage packet would prove no issue either for the big spending French outfit.
TBR View: Arsenal could cope without Bellerin, especially if they get big money
If Arsenal can get around £25-30m for Bellerin, then it looks like being a bit of a no brainer in all honesty. Of course, he is a good right back and can contribute when on form.
But on the other hand, he is just a right back and Arsenal need strength in depth in other areas of the field. Any money raised from the sale of someone like Bellerin could be very handy.
Arteta, then, may well cash in if a bid does come their way.
