Report: PSG Negotiating €30M Transfer For Arsenal Defender

If there’s a right-back out there that’s available, Paris Saint-Germain will more than likely be mentioned as a potential suitor.

It’s no secret that the Ligue 1 champions are desperate to upgrade their right-back position with Thomas Meunier expected to leave at the end of the season when his contract expires.

Currently, Thilo Kehrer and Colin Dagba are the two options to play the position but neither gives supporters a lot of confidence heading into a pivotal 2020-21 season.

We’ve seen the names of Ridle Baku (FSV Mainz), Adam Marusic (Lazio), and Ricardo Pereira (Leicester City FC) linked with a move to the French capital but a new report mentions a speedy Arsenal FC defender as another possible transfer target.

According to Todofichajes, PSG is negotiating with Arsenal over the transfer of Hector Bellerin with a figure of €30 million quoted as the number to get the deal over the finish line.

It seems like Bellerin has been at Arsenal forever but he’s only 25 and has the talent to be one of the top right-backs in the game if not for serious injuries that have plagued his career.

For me, €30 million is a very ambitious price. I can understand Arsenal trying to get as much as possible for Bellerin as they’ll have to go another season without UEFA Champions League football but PSG shouldn’t subsidize their failures.

PSG can find less injury-prone players in the transfer market this summer who can be signed for much less. Even if this transfer rumor is true, I think Les Parisiens should pass.

    30million euros ambitious? Are you serious? I could name many average players who have gone for more. You won’t be getting him unless we get silly money anyway. We don’t need to sell and hes on a long term contract

      Bellerin is a player who has had serious injuries in his career and remember, the coronavirus will change the transfer market. For example, PSG just signed Icardi for around €50 million.

    I don’t think that “subsidise their failures” is fair. More likely, Arsenal just don’t want to sell a key squad member under the current circumstances. Quoting a high price for him is the best way of guaranteeing a good outcome – PSG snort in derision and walk away = win for Arsenal, PSG pay over the odds for a talented but injury prone player who may have long term fitness concerns = win for Arsenal.

      Missing out on Champions League football has had an impact on Arsenal finances and the coronavirus only makes it worse. I could see them selling Bellerin and maybe signing a player like PSG’s Meunier on a free transfer.
