Arsenal still insists on selling Bellerin and it’s a problem to his main suitor

Arsenal could be stuck with Hector Bellerin if they maintain their current stance on selling him.

The full-back has a strong interest from Inter Milan who wants him to replace the departed Achraf Hakimi.

Bellerin has been a long-term target of the Italian club and they seem to be keen to finally add him to their squad this summer.

Corriere dello Sport as reported by Sempreinter claims that both clubs have reached a deadlock in talks to sign him as the Gunners continue to demand a guaranteed payment.

Inter wants a loan deal with an option of a permanent transfer at the end of its tenure.

However, with just two years left on his current deal, Arsenal doesn’t think that offer makes financial sense to them and the Gunners are insisting he joins them on a permanent transfer or a loan with an obligation to buy.

The report says Inter also want Davide Zappacosta from Chelsea on a similar agreement, but the Blues are similarly unwilling to accept their offer.

Both players are their primary targets to replace Hakimi, but they might fail to sign either.

Not being able to sell Bellerin this summer might force Arsenal to lose money from his eventual transfer as he might leave for a smaller fee next summer or for free in 2023.

  1. Inter have a pocket burning with 60m from PSG. So I don’t see why they are playing hard ball.
    For me, Arsenal should call their bluff. They will come back. Bellerin is their best bet.
    These Italian clubs think they can take us for a ride – like Inter, like Roma!
    Beat them at their own game. Arsenal are not under any pressure to sell the two players after all.

  2. We will not be stuck with Bellerin, if he doesn’t go permanently, he will leave on a loan fee rather like Guendozi. His time at Arsenal is done, he is already 3rd choice right back, just like Kolasinac on the left.

    He made it clear to Arteta last year he wanted to leave, but Arteta wanted him to stay until Chambers was back. Chambers is obviously a better defender and even going forward delivers more. Soares concerns me, his lack of pace could be a factor that he will probably become 3rd choice right back and 3rd choice left back. I do not think we need two 3rd choices for each side. We need a 5th centre back once White is on board and Clarke or Rekik could easily fit the bill, most likely Rekik whilst being a regular for the u23s and Clarke goes on loan.

    Aaron’s, Lamptey, Dumfries or Dest would be a great rival for chambers at right back. Though, AMN should be persuaded to try and give it a go and save £20m, then keep Torreira who is a far better CM.

  3. Bell is worth at least 22 – 25m. He’s still quite good for overseas tactics.
    Cant understand these Italian teams famous for loaning players n buy tactics nowadays.
    Torreira n Xhaka to me is at least 25m.
    Its kinda of a unprofessional that Italian teams dun support their own Italian players. Arsenal not asking of inflated prices like others just reasonable prices.

  4. Just wondering who will own Ozil’s yellow umbrella this season? Will it be Laca, Granit or Hector? My personal choice would be Hector…based on his modelling side gig.
    Do we really want to make the same mistake again: keeping hold of influential senior players who are not good enough to make the team?
    So sorry, I forgot to include Willian.

  5. Arsenal & Chelsea understand the ruse by some Italian clubs. The “option” to buy will never happen as they only want to fill a position temporarily.

    They benefit and no commitment while Arsenal / Chelsea see a player devalued and only 1 year on contract.

    Tell them “buy” is mandatory, and either agree and negotiate fee or stop calling.
