Inter Milan identifies another alternative to Bellerin in potential blow to Arsenal

Inter Milan wants to sign Hector Bellerin from Arsenal this summer, but if they cannot land the Spaniard, they will sign someone else.

Bellerin has been their long-term target and they remain keen to close out his signing this summer.

Arsenal is also happy to sell him after 10 years of service to them as he appears to no longer be as effective as he was when he first broke into the first team.

The Gunners, however, wants an outright sale, but Inter is looking to sign him on loan with an option to make the transfer permanent.

This has been a sticking point in the transfer so far with the Gunners not willing to shift their position, considering he has entered the last two years of his deal with them.

Inter is now looking at alternative targets who can play in that position for them.

Tuttosport via Sempre Inter reports that the Italian champions have identified Manuel Lazzari as another option who can do a good job for them.

The move would reunite him with Simone Inzaghi who was his manager at Lazio last season and has moved to the Milan club.

Missing out on selling Bellerin this summer could have consequences for Arsenal, who will now have to deal with selling him for a cheaper fee next summer.

    Based on performances Chambers beats him easily; I’d argue Soares edges him out.

    Chambers and Soares try to defend at least; Bellerin is a passenger on defense.

    Shocking how poor a defender he is even after all the years at the club. Tierney is a reminder of what a fullback should be.

      Roberto Carlos can’t defend? And he is one of the top left back of his time, so what’s this noise about defending!! Can belleti of Barcelona defend? Jordi alba?

        i would suggest Simon that they are rather better attacking than Bellerin. A lot can be forgiven (and would be forgiven of Bellerin) if he was a world-beating wing back going forward. He is good but not amazing – Tierney for example is a better attacking wing back and a better defender. Although I don’t rate Tierney’s defending that highly either, at least he tries to do the job, whereas Bellerin stands and watches.

      Yet another Italian club psyching the player up and then wanting him for free.
      Agree btw D. A defender who can’t defend – what are the odds on that? Ahhh… Mustafi…

        No Speedy – it’s way more fun this way! (:-))

      Sensationalism, emotive language and drama Speedy – seems to be how media works now. Didn’t you know we have an EPL dispensation allowing us to have a squad of 1,000? A budget of £1 billion? And 500 scouts and lawyers to make all these deals simultaneously?
      I sometimes think we Arsenal fans are in our own Truman Show, and Ed Harris is up there thinking what riduculous drivel to make us believe next.

        guy are you trying to be funny about the fact that that we are linked to 111 players( untold). Cause thats tautology. I think arsenal generate more clicks than any other clubs.
