French heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain are poised to revive their interest in Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin this summer. That is according to a report by CBS Sports, who claim the Spaniard is keen to test himself outside of the Premier League.
Bellerin is keen to leave Arsenal and test himself elsewhere, meaning PSG are ready to reignite their interest in the 25-year-old. The French club are not alone in eyeing up a potential move for the right-back, as Barcelona and at least two Serie A clubs also monitoring the situation.
The Parisians are not alone in their admiration for Bellerin, who has also turned heads in Barcelona as well as at least two clubs in Serie A. For their part Arsenal have not indicated to the player what their plans are for him as he approaches the final two years of the contract he signed in late 2016.
PSG attempted to sign the Spaniard before the start of this season and saw an offer worth up to $35million rejected by Arsenal, who were holding out for a figure closer to $50million. At the time Bellerin, who turns 26 in March, indicated that he was keen to move on rather than spend what could be the remaining years of his prime at a club that are undergoing a lengthy rebuild under Mikel Arteta rather than competing for silverware.
The Spaniard’s intervention last summer convinced Bellerin to remain at the Emirates Stadium for this season but Arsenal have run into the same difficulties this year and face an almighty struggle to qualify for Europe through the Premier League, Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Manchester City leaving them 10th in the table, 11 points off the top four with 13 games to play.
