Report: Arsenal star tells club he wants to leave; title-winning side is his priority
Hector Bellerin has reportedly told Arsenal he wants to leave this summer, with Inter Milan his priority.
According to Gianluca Di Marzio, the 26-year-old fullback has alerted the Gunners that he is eager to move on in the transfer window.
Serie A champions Inter are keen on Bellerin, and as per the report, the Milan-based club are the Catalan defender’s priority this summer.
The former FC Barcelona academy graduate has been hotly linked with a move away from Arsenal in recent weeks. Bellerin lost his starting XI spot for the Gunners last season under Mikel Arteta.
And with Inter selling Achraf Hakimi to PSG, the Italian side are in need of a new right-back. Moreover, Bellerin appears to be the most likely candidate to replace the Moroccan defender.
As per the report, though, a deal to bring Bellerin to Inter could be difficult. The Milanese side are eager to sign the defender on loan with an option to buy. Whereas Arsenal want to offload the fullback for good this summer.
There have been suggestions that Arsenal would be open to selling Bellerin this summer on loan.
However, the Gunners would only facilitate such a move if a club is guaranteed to sign Bellerin at the end of the initial loan deal.
