According to French outlet RMC, PSG have been ‘offered’ Hector Bellerin as they target a right-back during this transfer window.
It’s not clear who exactly has done this offering, whether it’s an agent or Arsenal themselves, but the French champions would certainly have the financial power to make a deal like this happen if they were so interested.
It would be a strange move in the light of reports that Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who played most of his Arsenal football at right-back or right wing-back, is set to join Wolves in a deal believed to be worth around £20m.
Bellerin’s departure would leave us light in that position, with only Cedric Soares available as a senior option for Mikel Arteta.
The former Southampton man’s permanent switch was officially announced today by the club, but over the course of the season Arsenal would need more than him in both presence and quality. So it seems Niles might not leave if bellerin make the switch to psg.
Perhaps there are plans to bring in another player in that position, with suggestions arsenal are keeping tabs on Norwich’s Max Aarons.
Bellerin has made 204 Arsenal appearances since making his debut in 2013, making 25 assists and scoring 8 goals.
We’re a bit cautious about this one as there’s so much else we need to take care of during this transfer window, but you can’t rule anything out
