Arsenal wants €23 million for player that wants to leave

Reports have linked Hector Bellerin with a move away from Arsenal this summer after a decade at the Emirates.

The Spaniard remains one of the leading characters in the Arsenal dressing room, but he is no longer guaranteed a starting spot on the first team.

Mikel Arteta fielded Calum Chambers ahead of him in the closing games of the season.

Several teams want the Spaniard and Arsenal feel this is probably the best time for them to cash in on him.

Arteta has been tasked with rebuilding the club and he knows some players that he inherited at the London side don’t fit into his plans for the next few years.

Bellerin is dispensable and Todofichajes says they have set an asking price for his signature.

The report claims that the Gunners are prepared to cash in on him and have dropped their valuation. They wanted 35m euros for his signature last summer, but they will now accept 23m euros.

The Gunners need funds to sign their own transfer targets and it remains unclear if they will replace him or invest the money from his sale in other positions.

Apart from Chambers, Cedric Soares can also play in that position for the club.

    Right now arsenal are one of the most foolish teams on Europe when it comes to transfers. We always keep players one year later than we should sell…

    The reason clubs like Lille are doing so well is because they know when to cash in on players. He should have been off last year but no, we are too scared to let go, now we have revealed his weakness to the whole world and nobody s coming for him. We should be shrewd with our timing too.

    If Pepe had stayed a year later in Lille his value would have dropped so badly and that would be poor business. Look at the amount our players are going for in the current market? I pity Mikel cos he is too scared to make changes that will make him succeed.

    Now we are in the summer and better teams are buying players to even become better, yet we pretend to have a plan but in all honesty do we see a laid down plan in the running of the club? No. These people are running the club down intentionally. Sometimes I think they are spurs working for us…

      Facts.. torreira, guendouzi etc. all lost their market worth and will now probably be sold for peanuts

        It’s Terrible how we do business as a club. Guendouzi that was apparently valued at 60 mil by transfermarket now he’s going to go for 13 mil. What kinda business is this? Which of our players can we really sell beyond 20 mil apart from the youngsters?

          Careful mate!.
          They may think its a good idea to sell Saka and Smith Rowe now!!!
          You know these Spuds running our team!!!

      Lille had Luis Campo doing their scouting and recruitment as he did for Monaco previously. He bought players low and sold high, won the title with both clubs and moved on.
      Bringing Luis Campo to Arsenal would be a very smart move; however we all know what happened to Sven Mislantat!

      1. Gogo says:

        Ofcos OG, any ambition football person cannot thrive in this club because there is too much deception from the top so it will negatively affect their carrier. Campos might come and discover that he will not be supported in the quest to make the squad better. What will happen next, he leaves.

        All they are trying to do is deceive the fans by making us believe that they are trying to make the club better while in fact they are doing to he opposite.

        LETS GET THE SPURS OWNERS OUT OF OUR CLUB BY AFFECTING THEIR POCKETS ASAP.

    Belerin should have gone last season but for MA asking him to stay. However, I feel whatever we get from his sale we must take it, because that is the best we can do right now. Both Cedric and Chambers can play as RB and hopefully AMN drops his obsession with midfield and can be used as a back up LB for Arsenal to invest the money obtained from Belerin sale in CM and CAM. These 2 are the most important positions right now and we must sign really good players in those positions for any hope of top 6 let alone top 4.

    Yet another Arsenal player that has dropped in value the more he played. Get rid for what we can get now, which wont be much.

    Certain fans among us – yes me actually, plus others – have been saying right from his start that Bellerin was useless and had NO idea at all how to defend. All he had , not has, but HAD, was special speed.

    Now , without that he has become a huge liability. He always was one anyway but worse now than years ago. He should have been sold at least six seasons ago, as I have been saying on JA ever since.

    GET WHATEVER WE CAN FOR THIS NEAR ENOUGH USELESS NON DEFENDER, POSING AS A DEFENDER, AND DO IT NOW!
