Arteta agreement could see one of his favourite players depart

Hector Bellerin could be set for a summer departure from Arsenal and they might not stop him.

The Spaniard has been at the club since 2011 when he joined them from Barcelona.

He is currently one of the oldest members of the team and has been linked with a move away.

Barca wants to have him back and PSG also has a strong interest in his signature.

ESPN claims he wanted to leave the club in the summer, but Mikel Arteta persuaded him to stay and promised that he would get his move this summer if he gives the Gunners one more season.

The right-back is on the cusp of fulfilling his part of the agreement and that will leave Arsenal with no choice but to allow him to leave them in the summer.

Arsenal has brought in Cedric Soares as a cover for him and the Portuguese full-back might be installed as the first choice soon.

The Gunners are rebuilding their team under Arteta and they will only want players that deep down wants to remain at the club.

If Bellerin asks to leave them in the summer, it might be best to let him leave. 

If they can make as much as the £30 million that PSG denied bidding for him, they would have made a good sale.

    I would say thanks Bellerin for your service, and for never slagging the club.

    Good luck in your next league. We need a complete RB like Tierney on the left.

    Sale prices will be significantly lower, but if we can sell Hector, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Torreria, free up Luiz salary, & sell Chambers too we can have 2 or 3 good additions.

    Buying costs will be lower, so a RB and DM are very possible. Attack wise we are ok with Auba, Saka, Martinelli. Pepe & Willian going nowhere, and Laca sale is ok too.

    B2B maybe with Bissouma, but we can improve the squad with 3 good players without breaking the piggy bank. It’s down to identifying correctly and getting them in.

      👍 Durand, spot on particularly in selling and buying in the same player market

  2. Durand says:

    Forgot to add Willock should come back more experienced and ready to contribute. Azeez can play some as well.

    AMN can either fill a spot or sell and get a backup player. Saliba & Mavro returning, so numbers wise the squad is fine.

    IF we can move several in the Summer 3 solid transfers in is realistic & possible.

      Thank you Grandad, i appreciate it. I’m trying to have a positive discussion about the club and future without it devolving into anyone getting thrown out.

      We have to be realistic, and it would be a good step forward and an improvement if the mentioned sales were possible in this environment.

      If we want to improve, only a few players should be considered “unsellable.”
      Saka, Tierney, Partey, ESR, Martinelli, Azeez, and I would argue Gabriel, Saliba, and Leno.

      There will be disagreement I’m sure, but I’m basing my choices on talented players who can serve the club at a high level for 7 years or more in some cases.

      All other players I would sell if a good price was offered.

    The dilemma with this organization has been their inability to prepare properly for when the inevitable happens…such was the case, when Dein , Vieira, RVP, Wenger etc…left…it took a ridiculous amount of time, if ever, to find suitable replacements for numerous individuals who were clearly paramount to our success when they were at the club…of course, Bellerin has never occupied the same rarified air as the aforementioned individuals, but we can’t afford to lower the bar or we will constantly be second-guessing this decision, for the wrong reasons…he should be sold on only if we have already found a plausible replacement with a bigger upside and a lower initial wage…this shouldn’t be difficult but I’ve said that many times before and this club almost always fails to do the right thing

      Gilberto Silva, the last great DM to play for Arsenal?

  5. RSH says:

    Should’ve been sold ages ago. Instead his value has slumped tremendously and we’ll be lucky to get 25mill off of him. Next on the list should be Lacazette before his value PLUMMETS after the summer transfer window. Wake up Aresnal!
