Fabrizio Romano confirms Arsenal to replace Bellerin this summer

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Hector Bellerin will be leaving Arsenal this summer with another right-back coming in in his place.

The right-back has lost his role in the first team in recent weeks, with Calum Chambers emerging as a solid option in the role, while Cedric Soares has also played at right-back this season.

The Spanish full-back’s future has been speculated in recent months, with Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain amongst the names linked. ESPN (via Fichajes) recently claimed that only the Italian side remained keen on a deal, while Fabrizio Romano has today claimed that the defender will be leaving this summer.

He also added that supposed target Tariq Lamptey is not our first-choice to replace him, while Achraf Hakimi appears to be committed to staying with Inter Milan beyond the summer.

The Moroccan defender told Repubblica(via FR): “I’m planning my future with Inter. I hope to stay for a long time, I’m happy here”.

Romano also added that Arsenal has not opened any official channels to strike a deal for Hakimi.

The Gunners are also expected to sign a new left-back this summer, with Sead Kolasinac unlikely to command a first-team role next term when his loan with Schalke ends.



  1. No offence Patrick but Mr Romano is an idiot ,just look at his previous comments regarding Arsenal transfers and how some Arsenal fans jump on them as gospel .
    We only have to look at last summers transfer Stories to prove my point

  2. 25M, at least, for our transfer kitty. HB has served us well, but his value to Barcelona is much greater than his value to the Club. Take a bow, HB!

  3. Arsenal are going to get some fund to spend this summer and further revamp the squad under Edu.
    Willock,Maitland Niles,Nelson,Guendouz,Torreira,Mavropanos,Ballard,Ben Sheaf all are going to be sold(My wish anyways)
    David Luiz-no contract renewal -Bring back Saliba
    Sell Bellerin and buy his replacement.
    Buy two to 3 players(LB,2Central Midfielders and 1 creative Midfielder should we fail to secure Odegaard) then we are good to challenge next season.

  4. Both Chambers and Soares are better than Bellerin at RB now, so clearly it’s best for Arsenal to sell him and use the cash towards buying players that we need (2nd choice LB, top quality central midfielder, possibly a striker) and and also sell the players on loan that aren’t good enough to make Arsenal a Champion’s League team again (Willock/etc/etc)
