Report: 26-year-old thinks he can get selected for the World Cup now he's been allowed to leave Arsenal
Hector Bellerin is hoping to go to the 2022 World Cup after leaving Arsenal, the Athletic report.
World Cup dreams
Bellerin opted to join Real Betis on loan from Arsenal, with the move actually one the player and his representatives sought out after analysing data.
It was felt that Bellerin was a perfect fit for Betis’ style of play, with the Arsenal man wanting to regain his top form.
The 26-year-old is now hoping to turn his career around and find his way back to top form.
Bellerin lost his way at Arsenal, and his performances over recent times have come in for great criticism.
Back to form?
However, the rapid defender is now hoping that he can earn his way back into international contention.
Bellerin wants to go to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
The Arsenal man has not played for Spain for well over a year, and has only four caps overall, but he has made it his aim to break back into the national side.
Even if Bellerin does impress in La Liga, it seems his time at Arsenal is coming to an end.
The Gunners have already signed a new right-back in the form of Takehiro Tomiyasu, and it would be a surprise if Bellerin ever played for the North London club again.
