Arsenal have a job to do keep Hector Bellerin

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin is supposedly considering his options this summer, with supposed interest coming from Juventus and Inter Milan at present.

The Spanish international joined our club from Barcelona as a 16 year-old, and spent his early years working within our academy before making his mark in the first-team.

Bellerin was promoted into the first-team thanks to injuries to all of Calum Chambers, Mathieu Debuchy and Nacho Monreal, but his performances assured that he would not relinquish his role upon their returns.

In only his second season as a first-team regular, Bellerin earned a place in the PFA Team of the Year, and teams such as Barcelona have previously been linked with his signature.

Latest reports seem to claim that his future could well be in Italy however, with Juventus and Inter Milan both keen on his signature.

The report does insist that Hector Bellerin has belief in Arsenal following the arrival of Mikel Arteta as coach, but with our club not expected to have much of a transfer budget to work with in the coming window, building a team that can challenge up the table may well be some time away.

The two Italian giants will of course be able to offer Champions League football to the 25 year-old, with our club having failed to qualify since 2017.

Bellerin’s sale could well help our club to invest in players more suited to Mikel Arteta’s philosophy, although the loss of Bellerin would also mean another right-back would be needed, as well as strengthening other areas of the team.

Should Arsenal cash-in on Bellerin this summer? Could we better invest the income from his sale to better our team?

    Bellerin has not developed as I’d hoped..His positional sense leaves a lot to be desired and while he cannot be faulted for effort , he has never mastered the basics of good defending.The pace which was always his main asset before his injury seems to have waned and without this he has become pretty ordinary as his technical ability on the ball was never that good. I would not stand in his way if he wants to leave as there are a number of good young right backs out there.

      Agree 100% Grandad, and politely put too.

      Cedric on a free wouldn’t be too bad a replacement while we groom a young RB.

  2. Robert Acedius says:

    Sell the little f*rt. He’s useless as a defender. There must be better RWB:s. Sell the f*rt!

    1. Admin Pat says:

      Is that the reason you want to sell him? He’s a f*rt??? Not a very lucid point to make Robert…

  3. SueP says:

    He’s definitely gone off the boil and I agree very much with Grandad’s assessment; a defender who can’t defend isn’t much use really

  4. Tony says:

    In Y’all opinion SELL.
    AFC hasn’t sold the main obstacles of a player around sucking pap! It’s Bellerin y’all cramping to be sold.

    Bellerin doesn’t need to be sold, he only needs a competitor. “You can’t serve two masters at the same time” Selling Clothes outfits and also playing football.

    Soares is a good option when fit.

      No idea what the second and third sentences even mean! Why some English speakers cannot and choose not to write in plain English puzzles me. I really don’t understand a single word of both those sentences.

      1. SueP says:

        I have to agree Jon
        Didn’t understand a word

  5. jon fox says:

    I agree with every word that Grandad wrote. Bellerin initially flattered to deceive when he first came. But apart from speed, which has lessened anyway, he brings nothing of any use to a defence.

    I will be glad tosee him gone and a proper defender, with some reliable fitness, more power and above all an ability to play in his right position, plus mark tightly and head the ball, brought in instead. Nothing against the person but the player is just not of the quality, nor fitness and strength we badly need.

  6. Reggie says:

    Bellerin is absolutely dire, overrated, weak, poor tackler and isn’t upto standard. The guy is useless, let him go to whoever is daft enough to take him.

  7. JOB D'SUN-UG.arua says:

    Hmmm!! guyz lets b realistic Hector had been affected by injuries! & pliz sometimes lets not consider field performance only hence 2 me he’s our next captain!! How many fastest RWB do we hv in EPL right now? H.B is our the next legend.
