Arsenal fans react to Hector Bellerin comments on his future

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react to comments from Hector Bellerin in which he seemed to suggest that he wants to stay with Real Betis beyond his loan spell.

Bellerin left the Gunners in the summer. It came after the 26-year-old had endured a difficult time for Mikel Arteta’s side.

He has since started four of the five La Liga games Betis have played since his arrival.

Of course, next summer is a long way away. But Bellerin appears to be very much open to the idea of staying in Spain beyond the end of his loan spell.

“I don’t know, but I’ve always said it: if I didn’t want to be here next year, I wouldn’t have come from the beginning,” he told El Desmarque.

It would make sense for all parties if Bellerin was sold next summer, as things stand.

Takehiro Tomiyasu has made a brilliant start to life at the Emirates. And Arteta also boasts a number of other options for the right-back position.

Bellerin meanwhile, appeared to need a fresh challenge in the summer. And, from the outside, it is hard to imagine that Arsenal or Bellerin would have had a problem had a club offered a permanent move.

So his comments will probably come as little surprise to some of the Arsenal fans.

Most supporters appear to feel that the time is right to let him go permanently. They are hopeful that Tomiyasu is going to prove to be a fantastic signing in the years to come.

With that in mind, here is what some of the Arsenal fans were saying about Bellerin’s comments…
