Arsenal blow as Inter Milan nears adding Bellerin alternative to their squad

Arsenal faces being stuck with Hector Bellerin after Fabrizio Romano revealed that Inter Milan is now close to completing the signing of Denzel Dumfries from PSV.

The Italians had been Bellerin’s main suitors in this transfer window as Arsenal opened the door for him to leave.

The Spaniard is facing increasing competition for a place in the team at the Emirates after seeing Mikel Arteta play Calum Chambers ahead of him towards the end of last season.

With under two years left on his current deal, Arsenal has been looking to offload him in this transfer window.

Inter entered talks with the Gunners over signing him, but they couldn’t reach an agreement.

The Italians wanted to take Bellerin on loan initially with the option of signing him permanently.

Arsenal wanted them to agree to a permanent transfer, but they refused and it seems they have now abandoned his chase.

Transfer insider, Romano reports that the Italians are now closing in on making Netherlands international, Dumfries their latest acquisition.

He tweeted: “Denzel Dumfries is set to join Inter from PSV Eindhoven, verbal agreement reached between clubs and here-we-go! Blue circleFlag of Netherlands #Inter

“Personal terms agreed too. Inter are planning for medical in the next few days in order to complete the move. Everton are out of the race. #EFC”

  1. Roma have agreed a 34M fee for Abraham but wouldn’t pay the fee set for Arsenal Inter wanted a loan with option to buy Bellerin but now are going to sign Dumfries I wouldn’t be surprised if it is a straight buy.. how telling!

        1. We have 2 debatable 3 RBS
          Cedric signed by Arteta for the hell of it and Bellerin who as been our mainstay RB for years
          Chambers is up for debate if he is a RB or just a waste of a squad place .

          1. Well Arsene Wenger did sign Chambers from Southampton as a right back and initially used him there, so I guess he can do a decent job at right-back just as he can do a decent job at centre-half and in midfield. Is he Tierney class? No, of course not but it’s a position we can postpone solving whilst we focus on more crucial areas.

            In a years time we might find that the academy has developed a candidate for that position alternatively we might sign a right back from somewhere else, someone not available this summer?

        2. you must be having a laugh SM…are you really suggesting that I’m a FIFA-infected poster??? that said, I’m a huge fan of this vid for the purposes of mad chirping and making some coin on the side, especially once I embraced 3 at the back with RBs and LBs replacing the LCB & RCB

  2. I don’t rate Bellerin but the only good ting is it helps our homegrown quota. We could look for a GK abroad without having to pay the inflated EPL prices.
