ARSENAL right-back Hector Bellerin is wanted by Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and Juventus with his future at the Emirates unclear, according to reports.
The pacy Spaniard has been an ever-present, when fit, for the Gunners over the last few years.
But he now faces competition for a spot in the starting line-up form Cedric Soares, who was signed on a permanent deal last week.
And The Express report PSG are monitoring the 25-year-old with Juventus and Bayern also poised to swoop.
Southampton loanee Soares put pen to paper on a four-year deal casting doubt on Bellerin‘s first choice status.
The Portuguese defender made his long-awaited Arsenal debut by replacing Bellerin against Norwich on Wednesday.
Soares proved he was worth the wait by bagging a wondergoal just 229 seconds after coming onto the field.

Boss Mikel Arteta was clearly impressed and Soares started Saturday’s 2-0 win against Wolves over Bellerin, who came off the bench for the last 14 minutes.
Bellerin has been restricted to only 11 Premier League starts this season and could face the axe as one of the higher earners at the club.
Arteta has proven he is not afraid to discard big names by dropping midfielders Mesut Ozil and Matteo Guendouzi.
The former Manchester City No2 is keen to put his personal stamp on the squad he inherited from Unai Emery in December.
Bellerin has spent nine years in North London and despite recent injury struggles is still in demand across Europe’s top leagues.
French champions PSG are understood to be eager to bring in a right-back this summer and have made no secret of the fact Bellerin would fit the bill.
Arteta is likely to undertake a summer squad overhaul and may be swayed into cashing in on his compatriot to free up funds.
