Héctor Bellerín’s future seems to be away from Arsenal if various reports coming out of Spain and Italy are to be believed.
Inter Milan are in the market for a new right-back after cashing in big from Achraf Hakimi’s sale to Paris Saint-Germain.
The Gunners defender is one of the options considered by the Serie A winners, and on Wednesday, Gazzetta dello Sport reported Mikel Arteta’s side are open to the idea of allowing the 26-year-old on loan with an obligation to buy.
Calciomercato have made similar claims and also provided more information on this case.
It’s claimed the Spaniard and PSV Eindhoven’s Denzel Dumfries are the two main options for the Nerazzurri.
Regarding the Premier League full-back, the report states he’s not included in Arteta’s plans next season.
Therefore, ‘there is willingness’ from the Emirates club to let the player leave this summer, and Bellerín’s desire, as per the website, is to make a switch to the San Siro.
Arsenal are ready to sanction the right-back’s transfer on a loan deal with a mandatory purchase option of €20m.
Inter, down their end, are ‘pushing’ for a loan deal with an option to buy and ‘perhaps a slightly lower amount’ to make the deal permanent.
However, that difference could quickly be sorted out, as Calciomercato state ‘the feeling is that the clubs can soon agree’ for Bellerín to join Inter.
We’ll see about that.
