Inter Milan have made Arsenal’s Héctor Bellerín their main right-back target after allowing Achraf Hakimi to complete a big money move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Two days ago, reports from Italy stated the Serie A winners are set to make ‘new contact’ with the Gunners, and the defender’s agent is ‘still pushing’ to get the deal over the line.
FcInterNews now claim the 26-year-old’s representative is scheduled to travel to London on Thursday and will be in the English capital until the end of this week.
It’s said the agent is set to meet the north London club’s leaders and the Spaniard’s future will be discussed, and based on these discussions, the Nerazzurri will be able to decide whether to move forward or abandon the option to sign the fullback.
Inter have some sort of an agreement with the player and they need to agree a deal with Mikel Arteta’s side to conclude the operation. ‘Specific news’ is expected on this case in the coming days.
Calciomercato.it are also reporting Bellerín’s agent will make a trip to London tomorrow and add the right-back, who has given his approval to join Inter, is ‘waiting’ for Arsenal’s ‘final go-ahead’ to seal an exit from the Emirates.
The agent will push for a loan deal with a right of redemption, which can be converted into an obligation if certain set conditions are fulfilled.
Inter, however, must also pay attention to Atlético Madrid as the La Liga champions can move for Bellerín if they cash in from Kieran Tripper’s sale this summer.
