Spanish club wants Arsenal to lower asking price for loanee

Real Betis is interested in converting Hector Bellerin’s loan deal into a permanent transfer.

The full-back has been on-loan at the Seville club in this campaign after he was declared surplus to requirements at Arsenal.

The Gunners have since signed Takehiro Tomiyasu and Cedric Soares is also doing a great job as a deputy to the Japanese star.

Arsenal has moved on from the Bellerin era and they will be happy to cash in on him for the right price.

The Gunners want to demand what makes sense to them, but their current valuation could scupper any transfer for him.

Todofichajes claims Betis wants to keep him permanently after his impressive loan spell. They have informed the Gunners of their intention.

However, Arsenal wants 18m euros for him, even though his current deal has just one more season to run on it.

The Spaniards want them to reduce that fee before both clubs can discuss any transfer business.

Just Arsenal Opinion

With just a year left on his current deal, Arsenal’s demand doesn’t make so much sense, especially because we don’t need him to return.

Although the report doesn’t mention how much Betis wants to pay, we should be keen to do business with them unless we have another suitor in mind.

  1. 18m hahahaha.
    I think they are trying to cover the shame of having to give him out for free this time by mentioning that amount as a cover up.

  2. They should wait until we just give Bellerin away. Guendouzi 8 million, Mavro 2 million, Auba and Chambers for free, ripped up Kola’s contract.

    Now rumored to want 18 million for Bellerin, yeah good luck with that.

    1. To be honest, I do not blame Arteta for the diabolic ways of giving out our players, i.e, paying them to play for other clubs. I blame the diabolic board who approve these things and agree to pay. I would rather pay a player to sit on my bench cos he might be needed for even a few minutes at some point, than pay him to play for another club, especially doing this and making the team so thin. We slashed the wage bill (paying players to leave isn’t actually slashing the wage bill) to prepare for signing quality players for the Champions League, only to have it backfire and we end up in the Europa League (if at all we get there). We won’t beat Spurs, Chelsea or West Ham. I predict 7th or 8th

  3. Other clubs now know that with little persuasion Arsenal will buckle and before you know it, they will cancel his contract and even pay him off and what next. Arteta is not the messiah. We will see how far he has dragged us back. We need a better coach than what we have.

  4. I will never understand how so dreadful a defender could have possibly been a regular for so long.

    I never understood what so many saw in Bellerin, as to me he was completely hopeless at trying to “defend” .

    Yes I know he, at one time, had speed but so does Usain Bolt but you would not use him as our RB.
    Only God and Wenger know what anyone saw in Bellerin as a player, fine human being though he was and is!
