Arsenal defender has agreement to leave this summer

Hector Bellerin to leave Arsenal this summer?

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin reportedly has an agreement with manager Mikel Arteta to leave the club during the summer transfer window.



The Spaniard graduated through the youth ranks at the club after joining from the La Masia academy and he has appeared 232 times for them.

According to ESPN, Bellerin wanted to leave the north London side last summer but he was convinced by Arteta to stay for another 12 months.

The right-back is said to be keen on pursuing a fresh challenge later this year and reports claim that the Gunners will sanction his wish.

Both Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona were linked with him last summer but it is unclear whether either side will make a renewed approach.

The Gunners are lining up possible replacements for Bellerin. Norwich City's Max Aarons and Brighton & Hove Albion's Tariq Lamptey are on their list.

Bellerin has made 28 appearances for the Gunners in all competitions this term. He is likely to start against Leicester City in the Premier League on Sunday.
