Arsenal Transfer News: According to Tutto Mercato Web, both Juventus and Inter Milan have entered the bidding for Hector Bellerin. The Spaniard played for Real Betis on loan from Arsenal during the last campaign. He is expected to depart the Gunners in the summer.
Bellerin made his professional debut with the Arsenal first team during the 2014–15 season. Before that, he was a member of the development programs of both Arsenal and Barcelona.
However, after reaching his career-high between the years 2015 and 2018, during which he was a first-team regular, he was demoted. Injuries also played a part in his decline.
Arsenal Transfer News: Bellerin on his way out
The fullback was eventually loaned out to Betis for a period of one year beginning in the summer of 2021. While there, he participated in 32 matches across all competitions and was directly involved in five goals. The 27-year-old is now scheduled to make a return to Arsenal. But it seems that he will be making a more permanent transfer.
According to the aforementioned article, following a successful season playing under Manuel Pellegrini at Real Betis, where Bellerin won the Copa del Rey, Real Betis continues to be Bellerin’s first option. However, the La Liga club may not have the financial means to bring him on permanently in the foreseeable future.
There are several other clubs, one from Serie A and one from La Liga, who have shown interest in signing the player. In addition to Juventus and Inter Milan, both Fiorentina and AS Roma have shown an interest in acquiring the services of the right-back.
The teams who are interested have even reached out to the player’s representatives to inquire about the potential of a transfer over the summer.
Where will Hector Bellerin finally move to?
There is just one year left on Bellerin’s contract with Arsenal. He has already played 239 games for the club in all competitions.
He makes more than €4 million per year with the Gunners at the moment. Bellerin would like to collect a salary that is comparable to that at his next club.
According to reports, Arsenal is seeking an asking price of €18 million for Bellerin. He has helped the north London side win three FA Cup titles. As for Arsenal, the club is looking to compete with Takehiro Tomiyasu at right back. They have been linked with a move for Udinese’s Nahuel Molina as a potential transfer.
