Arsenal identify two Hector Bellerin replacements amid Paris Saint-Germain links

Arsenal have reportedly identified two targets as potential Hector Bellerin replacements with Paris Saint-Germain said to have reignited their interest in the Spaniard.

PSG pushed to sign the Gunners’ full-back last summer but he was persuaded by Mikel Arteta and Edu to stay at the Emirates Stadium.

The Ligue 1 champions instead signed Alessandro Florenzi on loan, a deal that is expected to be made permanent in the summer, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side are looking for competition on the right side of defence.

As a result, CBS Sports states PSG are ready to reignite their interest ahead of the summer transfer window and Bellerin is considering a new challenge.

Should Bellerin leave, Arsenal will certainly need a replacement as it would leave Cedric Soares as the only recognised right-sided full-back in the squad.

It seems Arteta and Edu have plans in place though, as the report also identifies two candidates that the Gunners are considering signing.

Norwich City’s highly-rated Max Aarons is one name, with the 21-year-old also attracting the interest of Bayern Munich, Tottenham and Manchester United – which has led to a reported price-tag of £35m being placed upon his head.
