Several Arsenal players are in the transfer market as the club tries to raise some money for the Atletico Madrid deal.
Sokratis Papasthathopoulos, Matteo Guendouzi, Calum Chambers, Shkrodan Mustafi and Hector Bellerin are all available as long as the club receives the right fee for them.
For Hector Bellerin, there’s concrete interest in the Spanish right-back with German side Bayer Leverkusen and French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) interested in him.
The aforementioned report stated that the Gunners want at least £27m for the former Barcelona player.
Hector Bellerin has struggled for form since returning from a lengthy knee injury suffered against Chelsea at the start of last year. A new challenge could be the right step for him.
