Hector Bellerin wants Arsenal exit

Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin is pushing to leave the club this summer and has  grown frustrated at the clubs reluctance to sanction a move.

The Spanish international still has two years left on his contract with the Gunners but is reportedly pushing to leave the club after a decade in North London.

The Athletic report that Bellerin has made his wishes known to both Mikel Arteta and Edu and is even prepared to take a pay-cut to help facilitate a move.

Bellerin was of interest to Italian champions Inter who proposed taking the Spaniard on loan for the season, however they have now signed Denzel Dumfries.

The Athletic also suggest that other clubs have been interested in the 26-year-old however no one has matched Arsenal’s valuation of the player.

A tentative option was believed to be a swap deal with Barcelona that would see their 22-year-old Brazil international full-back Emerson Royal join the Gunners, however nothing is advanced at this stage. The same is thought to apply to any deal with Atletico Madrid for Kieran Trippier.

The report suggests that Bellerin is frustrated at his lack of playing time and wants to be in contention for the Spain squad at World Cup 2022.
