Paris Saint-Germain are confident of signing Hector Bellerin from Arsenal in this transfer window, according to The Telegraph.
The right-back joined the Gunners’ first team in 2014 and has made a total of 205 appearances for the club in the five years since.
A bid of around £25 million is believed to be on the table, and both the player and Arsenal are open to the move. Bellerin is one of the three players the Ligue 1 champions are keen to bring in, which, despite some reports suggesting otherwise, does not include Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi.
PSG boss Thomas Tuchel was forced to make use of Thilo Kehrer on the right defensive flank after the departure of Thomas Meunier to Borussia Dortmund, even though his preferred role is in the middle of the back line. The arrival of the 25-year-old Arsenal man would obviously solve that particular problem.
Bellerin’s potential move would likely mean Arsenal closing the door on the departure of Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who would then remain at the Emirates to fight for his place in the team with Cedric Soares.
