Bellerin asks Arsenal to be sold

Carlo Garganese

Hector Bellerin has issued a transfer request to Arsenal, asking the club to sell him to Inter.

Bellerin will be allowed to leave the Gunners this summer if the club receives a transfer offer in the region of around €25 million.

Inter have made the Spaniard their number one target to replace Achraf Hakimi as their right wing-back, according to Sky Sport Italia.

Will Bellerin leave Arsenal?

Hakimi completed a €70m transfer to PSG last week and new Inter coach Simone Inzaghi is looking for a player capable of occupying the right flank in his 3-5-1-1 formation.

Bellerin has asked Arsenal that he be allowed to join Inter but so far the two clubs have not come to an agreement.

Arsenal would like either a straight sale or to relinquish the player on loan with an obligation to buy after certain targets are met.

However, Inter are currently demanding that the pacy player moves on loan with an option to buy.

When did Bellerin join Arsenal?

Bellerin was considered one of the most promising young full-backs in Europe a few years ago but he has seen his stock fall in recent seasons.

Now 26 and with his contract expiring in 2023, both the player and Arsenal are hoping to go their separate ways this summer.

Bellerin joined Arsenal from Barcelona as a 16-year-old back in 2011.

He made his senior team debut in 2013 and has gone on to make 183 appearances for the club, scoring eight goals.

Capped four times by Spain, he has won three FA Cups during his time in north London.
