Pundit makes it clear Arsenal man has no future at the Emirates

Hector Bellerin did well on loan at Real Betis last season, and he even won a trophy with the La Liga side.

Most of us expected them to find the funds to make his transfer permanent, but that hasn’t been the case, and he is now a part of the Arsenal group in preseason training.

The right-back was surplus to requirements at the Emirates last season, and it is likely still the same case.

With Cedric Soares and Takehiro Tomiyasu ahead of him on the pecking order, a permanent transfer is likely on the cards.

Former Aston Villa and Tottenham man, Alan Hutton, admits the Spaniard’s time at the Emirates is over already.

He tells Football Insider:

“I think his time might be up if I’m totally honest.

“Before his serious injuries he was lightening quick, he was a regular and he looked like he’d probably be there forever. It’s not quite worked out that way the last couple of seasons.

“I think it was the right decision for him to go out on loan and play. Back home in his own country, he probably felt good being back there and things like that, so it was a good move.

“Now [Takehiro] Tomiyasu has come in and I think when he’s fit he’s been exceptional. I don’t see Bellerin pushing him out.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

As long as we don’t consider Bellerin good enough to earn a new deal, his career with us is almost as good as over.

The full-back has served us for over a decade, and it is time to allow him to explore other parts of his career.

Hopefully, he will find a suitor that will take him on from this season.

  1. Cedric and Bellerin are not sturdy enough as FB in a typical Arteta team. Even if they start at FB on the team-sheet, they tactically play as WB on the pitch. They are too light weight for the Arteta FB role.

    Tavares has the physicality of the typical Arteta FB role but doesn’t always play to instructions.

    Meaning we’re left with only the trio of Tierney, Tomiyasu and White to play FB for the season. We are short in the department.

    I guess this is why we wanted Lizandro Martinez.

    Moving forward, I think 17 years old Ruelle Walters looks a good fit. Typical Arteta FB must be 100% comfortable at CB, and Ruelle Walters has shown that. IMO.

    So let’s hope that White, Tavares and Ruelle Walters can provide the needed cover for Tomiyasu and Tierney at FB for the season. COYG.

    Our 25man squad for 2022/23 season:
    GK: Ramsdale, Turner, Okonkwo
    CB: Saliba, Mangalese, Holding, White
    FB: Tierney, Tavares, Tomiyasu, Walters
    DM: Partey, Xhaka, Lokonga, Elneny
    AM: Odegaard, Emile, Fabio
    WF: Saka, Martinelli, Reiss, Maquinhos
    CF: Jesus, Eddie, Flo
