'It is our information': Arsenal player is now in talks with three clubs about leaving the Emirates - journalist
Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin is currently in discussions with ‘at least’ three clubs to leave the Emirates Stadium, Ian McGarry has told the Transfer Window podcast.
On the move?
Bellerin has been heavily linked with a move away from Arsenal and it seems that the Gunners are happy to let him talk to interested parties.
Mikel Arteta’s side seemingly feel that selling Bellerin could be a smart move, as his sale could enable them to bring in additions of their own.
And McGarry says that three prospective buyers are currently talking to the right-back.
“It is our information that Bellerin and his representatives are in talks with at least three different clubs, with regards to a transfer this summer,” he said.
“We’ve also been told by very senior sources at Arsenal that Bellerin is one of the payers they believe they can cash in on in terms of their financial difficulties and their ability to purchase new players.”
Time to go?
Bellerin has been with Arsenal for over a decade now, but it does feel that the time is right for the Spaniard to move on – for both player and club.
The 26-year-old struggled last term, with his performances often coming under criticism.
Despite being played regularly by Arteta, Bellerin did not offer Arsenal enough in the final third, and his place ultimately came under threat from the likes of Calum Chambers towards the end of the season.
It is widely expected that Arsenal will sign a right-back if Bellerin leaves, with Arteta clearly keen to restructure his squad after what was a hugely disappointing campaign last time around.
