With a big transfer window just around the corner, Arsenal might consider selling Hector Bellerin in a bid to raise funds for transfers.

According to a report, PSG might be ready to step up their interest in Arsenal star Hector Bellerin.

The Spaniard has been linked with a move away from Arsenal for some time now. The likes of PSG and Barcelona were both said to be keen in January, and it appears that interest hasn’t slid away just yet.

The Daily Star claims that while Barca may have cooled their interest, PSG remain just as keen as they always were. Infact, the French giants could well launch a summer bid to land the Spanish right-back.

Still only 26, Bellerin, has been a mainstay for the Gunners over the course of a number of seasons. But with Mikel Arteta planning another summer rebuild job, Bellerin could fetch some much-needed cash into the Arsenal coffers.

PSG are one of the teams who can afford to land the full-back with considerable ease. His apparent £110k-a-week wage packet would prove no issue either for the big-spending French outfit.

If Arsenal can get around £25-30m for Bellerin, then it looks like they might be tempted to sell the right-back.

Any cash raised from the sale of someone like Bellerin could be very handy.

With that in mind, Arteta may well cash in if a bid does come their way.
