Paris Saint-Germain reportedly look to have moved on from trying to sign Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin.
The Spain international was apparently targeted by PSG, according to Fabrizio Romano, only for Arsenal to reject their bid.
Now, Romano has tweeted that the Ligue 1 giants seem to have turned to a loan deal for Roma right-back Alessandro Florenzi instead, with a view to the deal eventually becoming permanent…
Alessandro Florenzi is set to join Paris Saint-Germain. Agreement reached with AS Roma on loan with buy option. Arsenal have turned down last PSG bid to sign Bellerin on loan – Florenzi is coming to PSG. Here-we-go ??? @DiMarzio @SkySport #transfers #PSG

Arsenal fans will hope this can be the end of the Bellerin transfer saga, with the 25-year-old a key part of Mikel Arteta’s side and a real crowd favourite at the Emirates Stadium.
Bellerin has been at Arsenal since he was a youngster and remains one of the finest attacking full-backs in Europe on his day, even if he hasn’t always had the best of luck with injuries.
PSG lost Thomas Meunier this summer so could do with a new signing in that area of the pitch, with Florenzi looking a decent option for the Champions League runners-up.
