In today's Arsenal transfer roundup, we have the latest as a Serie A club joins the race for a Gunners defender, fan-favourite Hector Bellerin is linked with a move away from the Emirates Stadium, and more.
Roma enter the race for Arsenal defender
AS Roma have entered the race to sign Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac, according to reports. The 27-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates Stadium, with new signing Kieran Tierney preferred ahead of him.
Kolasinac's former club, Schalke, had also expressed their interest in signing the Bosnia and Herzegovina international on a season-long loan deal.
According to latest reports, Roma are interested in the Kolasinac as manager Paulo Fonseca is looking for additions in the full-back department.
Kolasinac had previously been linked with a move to Roma in the winter transfer window, and it appears the Serie A giants have rekindled their interest in the defender.
Arsenal offer Hector Bellerin to European giants
Arsenal have offered right-back Hector Bellerin to European giants Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports. The Ligue 1 champions are reportedly in the market for a new right-back, and Arsenal are hoping they can sell one of their high-value assets for a huge fee.
The Gunners are planning a squad overhaul under head coach Mikel Arteta and are willing to part with a number of key first-team players in order to fund the reinforcements. Bellerin is one of the players who would command a high transfer fee, and the north London giants are looking to capitalise on it.
However, according to the report, PSG are wary of Bellerin's injury record and are pondering whether to make a move for the Spaniard. Juventus are also said to be monitoring the defender's situation.
