PSG want Hector Bellerin transfer despite ‘overrated’ Arsenal price tag
Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly keen on Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin, but think his price tag makes him “overrated”.

And PSG feel that makes him “overrated”, due to his lack of international experience and defensive capabilities.
The French champions feel Bellerin has some defensive fragilities which could make him a liability against some of Europe’s bigger teams.
They also have some reservations about his three caps for Spain, feeling an established 25-year-old should have more at this stage of his career.
PSG were forced to play usual centre-back Thilo Kehrer at right-back on their run to the Champions League final last month, having sold Thomas Meunier to Borussia Dortmund in June.

“The players had only a handful of training sessions together in the build-up, but we saw a well coached side cause Jurgen Klopp’s team problems.
