Héctor Bellerín retains a desire to leave Arsenal for Inter Milan this summer and various reports coming out of Italy have stated the Gunners defender is one of the main targets for the Serie A winners.
The Nerazzurri are in the market for a new right-back after having cashed in big from Achraf Hakimi’s sale to Paris Saint-Germain.
TuttoMercatoWeb now state the 26-year-old has ‘already said yes’ to Simone Inzaghi’s side and joining the Italian club will help him ‘fulfil an authentic dream’, which is to live and play in Milan.
In order to seal a switch to the San Siro, Mikel Arteta’s man is ‘ready to lower his wages’, and he would sign a five-year contract worth €3.5m net per season.
Inter are also keen on having the player, and have proposed a loan deal with the right of redemption.
Arsenal aren’t pleased and have not given a green light for the fullback to seal an exit from the Emirates so far.
The north London club value Bellerín at €20m and want an obligation to redeem, but this option doesn’t sit well with Inzaghi’s side since they cannot ‘afford investments of this type due to their precarious financial situation’.
After weeks of talks with the player, Inter’s situation with Arsenal is now becoming a ‘real tug-of-war’.
