Bayer Leverkusen to use Havertz cash on Arsenal fullback Bellerin

Bayer Leverkusen are joining the scramble for Arsenal fullback Hector Bellerin.

The Telegraph says the 25-year-old has been the subject of a £30million bid from Paris Saint-Germain, and Arsenal are understood to recognise that any substantial fee will allow them to reinvest.

Leverkusen will attempt to push for European silverware next season and the Bundesliga outfit may swoop for Bellerin to boost their chances.

The money raised from Kai Havertz's move to Chelsea this week will strengthen Leverkusen's hopes of signing an experienced right back, with Tottenham's Serge Aurier also on their radar.

Bellerin remains Arsenal's first-choice right back but could find himself leaving with the north London club still hoping to be active in the market.
