Arsenal blow as Inter makes transfer decision that could see Bellerin remain in London

Arsenal has been handed a small transfer blow in their bid to get rid of Hector Bellerin this summer.

The Gunners remain keen on reshaping their squad and selling Bellerin is one way for them to raise funds for their other transfer targets.

The Spaniard struggled with game time towards the end of last season and that could be a sign that he isn’t wanted by the Gunners anymore.

He has been linked with a move to clubs like Barcelona and PSG in the last few transfer windows.

He emerged as a target for Inter Milan in this transfer window as the Italians look to replace Achraf Hakimi, who is on his way out of the club.

Bellerin is one of the few fullbacks who can replace the Moroccan, but a new report from Gazzetta dello Sport via Sempre Milan claims Inter’s new manager, Simone Inzaghi, has another target in mind.

The report says he is looking to raid his former club, Lazio, to bring Manuel Lazzari to the San Siro.

This would serve as an early transfer blow to Arsenal’s plans of raising money for their own transfer targets.

Hakimi is reportedly moving to PSG which means two of Bellerin’s suitors are already out of the running for his signature.

    Not a big deal. I’m sure there are other clubs interested in Bellerin. He has loads of PL experience

    1. John Ibrahim says:

      not every club can pay whatever any club wants

    2. Depressed says:

      He is not looking to stay in the PL and he just got beat out by Calum Chambers. He lost his pace after the injury and is now just a short guy who is average going forward and a liability defensively.

    i’m sure we can get rid of him for 6 or 7 m somewhere 😮

    1. John Ibrahim says:

      do you think every clubs can spend millions easily?

      6 or 7m is just the club fee

      there is the millions dollar wage and the agent fee

    I would be interested to find out exactly which clubs would be prepared to pay any amount of money for a right back who is currently earning approximately £5m per year…Yet has struggled for game time at a Club which has finished just above half way in their National League…isnt currently close to his National side…and frankly doesn’t have any of those attributes necessary to play in his position…pace,defensive nous,crossing ability…

      😔😔😔

    2. Depressed says:

      I agree. Selling Bellerin for a decent fee will be tough. Don’t be surprised if he is back next year because the only offers are lowball offers.

      1. Ozziegunner says:

        👍 👍 👍 And the high wages paid at Arsenal don’t help facilitating a transfer.

  4. ThirdManJW says:

    He’ll be going, don’t worry.

    1. Grandad says:

      I wish I shared your optimism TM.I suspect Bellerin will still be with us next season as could be the case with Xhaka.I hope I am proved wrong on both accounts.

      1. Ozziegunner says:

        Grandad, apparently AC Roma is prepared to offer Diawara as part payment. Diawara was on Arsenal’s radar with Sven Mislantat as a DM back in 2018. If Diawara can remain injury free (a big “if” I know) and resurrect his career at Arsenal, that would be a big win for the Club.

        1. Ozziegunner says:

          This was in regard to Granit Xhaka.

  5. Unge says:

    Is Arsenal trying to “Get rid” of him,or its him trying to leave?I am sure its the latter

  6. Apangu iddi amin says:

    We wish them good luck if they go but if they remain here we give them a new contract with reduced pay cut to keep them for more than a year as we look for market.

  7. Ozziegunner says:

    Right back Daniel Oyegoke (18yo) has refused a contract offer from Arsenal, reportedly due to his not seeing a path to the first team. He has moved to newly promoted Brentford. It will be interesting to see if he is good enough to make their first team.
