Bellerin wanted by Spanish and Italian sides

Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin is attracting attention from both Spain and Italy and is expected to leave the club this summer. The 26-year-old right back started his career in the Barcelona youth academy before making the step-up to the Arsenal senior squad in 2013

Reports from both Football London and Sky Italia’s Gianluca Di Marzio suggest that the Spaniard could be on his way out of the Emirates with both Villareal and Inter Milan interested in his services.

Bellerin has two years left on his Gunners contract and is keen to leave the club after a decade in north London with Arsenal aiming for at least €20m in transfer fees.

Di Marzio suggests that Inter Milan are close to completing the sale of Achraf Hakimi to Paris Saint-Germain and have reportedly eyed up Bellerin as his replacement.

There have already been contacts between the two clubs and Inter are looking to sign Bellerin on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.

Impending new signing Ben White could fill in at right-back next season given his versatility, which could free Bellerin for a move abroad.
