A massive clearout is expected at the English Premier League club Arsenal as manager Mikel Arteta plans to cash in to invest in new players but he has decided to snub the prospect of earning £30 million to be able to keep Hector Bellerin.

The Spanish right full-back is one of the players that has been rumoured to be on the exit list of the club with the Arsenal board considering to part ways with him to be able to earn some funds.

French Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain are one of the suitors for Hector Bellerin and they are ready to help the Gunners with a fee of £30 million for the signature of the defender.

The latest report claims Mikel Arteta will not give in to the temptation of losing Hector Bellerin because of his quality and has made up his mind to keep him, knowing that the player is also open to staying at the club.

It is understood that the decision of the Spanish boss to keep Hector Bellerin was made after seeing his performance in the Community Shield game against Premier League champions Liverpool.

Mikel Arteta wants to compete for titles next season but top on his agenda is to be in the top four and that will only happen with the best players possible.
