Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin is being targeted by Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and two Italian clubs ahead of the summer, according to reports.
The Spaniard was on PSG’s radar before the start of the season, and at the time it was believed that the 25-year-old was open to leaving the Emirates. If the Ligue One side do revive their interest in the player, fans on Twitter wouldn’t be against the defender leaving:
Options for right backs aren’t the best. But it definitely won’t be hard finding someone better than Bellerin.

He’s not good enough never will be time to to move on

I’d happily sell him! He’s lost a yard of pace through injuries, his crossing isn’t good enough and he leaves us exposed a lot when he doesn’t get back into position.
We need the RB equivalent of Tierney – fast, as good defensively as offensively. Lamptey would be great 🤞

I love Bellerin and I’m not convinced he’s a finished player but if he’s considering leaving, it’s still good and an opportunity for us to go all out for H. Achraf.. Also a back up left back(wouldn’t cost much), A CMF ( Auoar, Soumare, Bissouma) are all options.

If we can get 20 mil for him, that would be daylight robbery, hopefuly we can invest and upgrade on RB so we are finally dangerous from both sides of the pitch

literally not good enough needs to go to ligue un with a team like psg or monaco he needs to leave arsenal to pursuit a new challenge my ideal right back replacement for Bellerin is Lamptey from brighton he would be a good right back in the future for arsenal.

I lost faith in him a long time ago. Since the ACL injury he’s not been able to replicate the form he showed before.

One of the reasons for our downwards spiral

Bellerin is bad at football simple

Bellerin does get some undeserved stick from supporters at times. On paper, his numbers this season have been pretty decent, having scored one goal and provided four assists in 27 appearances.
However, the fullback has not always performed well defensively and he was pretty poor at the weekend against Manchester City.
With the likes of Tariq Lamptey and Max Aarons being put forward as possible options, it seems as though the Gunners could be targeting an exciting, young replacement for Bellerin, but we shall see how things play out in the summer.
