- Hector Bellerin could be heading out of Premier League club Arsenal at the end of the season
- The defender is reportedly on the radar of Spanish club Barcelona and French side PSG
- Ex-Liverpool forward John Barnes has blasted the player, saying he is not good enough
With Barcelona and PSG chasing the defender, Arsenal star Hector Bellerin has reportedly reached an agreement to leave the Emirates Stadium outfit.
Reports have it that the 25-year-old was convinced to stay another year by manager Mikel Arteta after the player said he wanted to leave.
It was gathered that he had requested to leave the club last summer despite that he enjoys very cordial relationship with the team manager.

“If [Belleri]) said he doesn’t want to stay at Arsenal, then they should let him go. Bellerin is part of the reason as to why Arsenal is a club in transition and not currently playing well.
"If your team isn’t performing well, you want players who want to help the team perform better not ones who talk about leaving mid-season when the team is going through a rough patch."
Meanwhile, Thiago Silva will not be available for Thomas Tuchel when Chelsea host Manchester United at Old Trafford this weekend.
The Brazilian legend joined the Blues on a free transfer last summer and has scored twice in 17 Premier League appearances so far this campaign.
He picked up a muscle injury during their 1-0 triumph over Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month and has continued to recover away from the rest of the team.
