'Laughing stock', 'Why are we so bad?' : Some Arsenal fans bemused as club demand £20m for 'key figure'

Some Arsenal fans were reacting after a report emerged on the club’s asking price for Hector Bellerin.

According to CBS Sports, the Gunners have told interested parties they want £20m for the right-back.

Atletico Madrid are one of the interested parties with Kieran Trippier reportedly on the move to Manchester United.

Diego Simeone’s side have made the Spain international a ‘leading target’.

Real Betis are linked with a move after approaching Arsenal over a transfer.


Bellerin has grown disillusioned with the north London giants and is seeking a transfer away.

The 25-year-old played just 35 times across all competitions last season. He lost his right-back spot to Cedric Soares and then Calum Chambers towards the end of the campaign.

He was labelled a ‘top player‘ by Mikel Arteta.
