Arsenal loanee doing his best to leave the Emirates

Hector Bellerin has spent much of his senior career on the books of Arsenal, having joined the Gunners from Barcelona as a 16-year-old.

He was the first-choice right-back for many years before losing that preference under Mikel Arteta.

That forced him to move to Real Betis on loan in the summer for the rest of this season.

The right-back is having a great campaign in Spain and he is now likely to join the La Liga side permanently.

With a year left on his current deal, he shouldn’t cost them a lot of money.

However, now that he has done well, Arsenal might want a good fee to sell him.

Estadio Deportivo claims the defender wants to stay where he is now and he is working hard to ensure Arsenal asks for very little money in his transfer so that it can get through.

Just Arsenal Opinion

We have moved on from any player who is not a part of the current team at the Emirates.

If this group secures a top-four finish, then there would be no need to bring back some players who are currently on loan.

With that in mind, we should make it easy for Betis to make the transfer of Bellerin permanent.

    1. Declan , it is because Haaland had a release clause in his contract, that’s the reason Dortmund managed to sign him because any club willing to sign him had to agree to his demands of release clauses,but I have to admit it is well below his market value for sure.another thing,we can’t blame Pépé for his tag price.there was an article in the Athletic,in which they explained that Arsenal officials,staff…were at a barbecue at Kroenke’s ranch,some officials had heard rumours that Napoli were going to put a very large bid for him so the decision was taken in minutes .

        1. Truth being told,I really don’t know.do you?have you read anything about where all this money went?the only thing I know is that it was to be paid in 4 or 5 installments.what about our Raoul??

  1. So the article states that if we finish in the top four, there’s no need to bring on loan players back.
    Players like Balogun – who we just gave a new contract too.
    Saliba – who cost a reported £26,000,000 and still hasn’t pulled the shirt on in anger.

    1. Some players there would be no need. Bellerin probably falls into that category, but Balogun probably gets another season on loan.

      Saliba can come in next year and compete with White and Gabriel straight away. I’d like to see him start, not really convinced Ben White should walk into lineup.

      Honestly, be a bit harsh to sit Holding who has been great last couple matches. We’ll see what Arteta does tho, a couple players tend to be exceptions when it comes to getting back into the lineup.

  2. If Betis aren’t willing to meet our asking price for Bellerin, we should just take him back. Period. The last time I checked we were still operating as a business; not a charity. Do we really think other clubs will make it easy for us to acquire their players? Get real.

    1. Taking him back and paying him for not playing?he has 1 year left on his contract and could run it out and become “another” free agent.according to Charles Watts,both club are already in discussions and the expected fee is 5 to 8M,not sure if it is Euros or pounds.

        1. That’s how quick things can turn.as I said before,clubs would have looked how we dealt with the players we didn’t want,buying contracts and the likes,also marginalising those players,we can’t expect to get much money from our players sales, that’s for sure.

  3. Ah yes, Bellerin! I remember him, ,just about .

    Wish I didn’t though. The so called defender who could never defend at all, thats his title!
