Report: £110,000-a-week Arsenal ace has agreed four-year deal with Europa League rivals

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin is reportedly closing in on a permanent departure from the Emirates Stadium.

Over the past few days, reports from Spain have been claiming the Gunners ace is nearing a switch to Real Betis.

ABC Sevilla recently reported that Bellerin’s camp is in talks with Arsenal over the termination of his contract.

Meanwhile, Sport suggested that the Gunners were considering terminating Bellerin’s contract anyway.

Now, Mucho Deporte has provided further details on Bellerin’s seemingly imminent departure from Arsenal.

Apparently, the 27-year-old has already agreed a four-year deal with Betis, who hold the option of a fifth year.

Bellerin – currently on £110,000-a-week – will reportedly take a paycut of more than half to join the Seville-based outfit.

In addition, the Spaniard has apparently rejected other offers in order to link up with Betis.

The Europa League club is now waiting to sell some players and solve some financial issues before completing the deal, added the report.

A deal that suits all parties – TBR View

Bellerin has been on the Gunners’ books for over a decade now.

He came to North London from Barcelona as a teenager and made a name for himself after he burst onto the scene under Arsene Wenger.

After 10 years at the Emirates, Bellerin decided he wanted a change last summer.

He joined Real Betis on a season-long loan deal, and had a fantastic campaign there.

Though Mikel Arteta rates Bellerin highly, Arsenal have very much moved on from having him in the team.

And so, this looks like a deal that will suit all parties.

Bellerin returns to the club where he had success last term, and Arsenal get £110,000-a-week off their wage bill.
