Bellerin emerges as key target for Europa League side

Real Betis are claimed to be targeting a move to sign Hector Bellerin from Arsenal this summer, as a replacement for Emerson Royal.

The La Liga side earned a place in next season’s Europa League thanks to a sixth place finish in the division, and are keen to bolster their side ahead of the challenge.

Emerson Royal has been amongst their standout players this season at right-back, but Fichajes states that he will now join Barcelona for a €9 Million fee plus a portion of his future sale, as agreed between the two sides when they initially cooperated to bring him to Spain from Brazil in 2019.

The Gunners defender is now believed to be high on their wishlist as they look to bolster their right-back spot, and reports that Hector Bellerin has played his last match for Arsenal may well have excited their interest.

The Spanish full-back still has two years remaining on his current contract, but he is expected to be allowed to move on for the right offer, but I believe Bellerin may have sought a more ambitious club to move for this summer.

The feeling was always that Barcelona would come calling for him, the club he played for as a youngster, and only a short time ago, the defender was believed to be a priority signing for Joan Laporte on his return to the club according to the Mirror.

Would Bellerin consider a move to Betis?

    Why do i have a feeling we are gonna be stuck with Bellerin and he’s going nowhere?

      Agreed. Or we will be lucky to get 15 million for him.

        I will take the 15 tbh. Bellerin is extremely one dimensional and terrible defensively. get rid

      Betis are a bit of a sleeping giant and it’s some time since they were regarded as the premier side in the beautiful city of Seville.It would be great if we could arrange a swap plus cash deal for the talented Nabil Fekir but wishful thinking on my part I’m afraid.It is time for Bellerin to move on and I am sure most Arsenal fans would go along with this.

        100%
        Interesting take on Fekir. 🤔

    Although this does seem like a more realistic landing spot for someone of Bellerin’s ilk, than the earlier rumours regarding Barca and PSG, it does seem weird that we didn’t try to finagle a swap for their outgoing RB…of course, I’m sure Royal would have rather of moved on to Barca than headed to North London, but the club might have been persuaded into switching courses if they truly had interest in our longtime RB…as for Fekir, always rated him when he was plying his trade in France, along side Laca, but a tad concerned about his injury history…another player who would have made far more sense 5 years ago
