Benched Arsenal star, Hector Bellerin ready to quit the Emirates Stadium in the
summer, The Spanish full-back wants a new challenge after ten years at the Emirates
and fancies moving to another country.
And Arsenal boss Arteta will not stand in the way of Bellerin, 26, as he plans to revamp
his underperforming squad.
Paris Saint-Germain and AC Milan are both monitoring the situation and could make a
move at the right price.
Arsenal hopes to raise as much as £35million for a player who still has two years to
run on his contract — but may be forced to slash their asking price.
Bellerin is the Gunners’ longest-serving current player after joining from Barcelona’s

He has made almost 250 appearances for the club during that time, but recently
found himself playing back-up to Calum Chambers.

They also like 22-year-old Brazilian star Emerson Royal, who plays for Real Betis but is
jointly owned by Barcelona.
Betis and Barca split the £12m transfer fee when Emerson was sold by Atletico Mineiro

for a healthy profit.
Arteta has been promised funds for signings but must also cut his squad with the
likelihood of missing out on Europe.
French midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, 22, who has been out on loan at Hertha Berlin,
is also set for the exit door.
