Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has reportedly made a decision on his future at the Emirates Stadium, according to ESPN.
The 25-year-old is a fan favourite at Arsenal and well respected in the Gunners dressing room, a prime candidate to become permanent captain in future.
To date, Bellerin has made 195 competitive senior appearances for Arsenal, claiming eight goals and 25 assists over the past seven years.
Although his Arsenal contract takes him to the end of the 2022-23 season, he is often linked with a move elsewhere, and this year has been no different.
FcInterNews reported back in April that Bellerin was on the radar of Inter Milan.
ESPN notes how it’s often feared that the Spaniard could push to leave should he become disillusioned with the club’s progress.
However, the outlet also claims that sources have told them “Bellerin is fully invested in coach Mikel Arteta’s vision for the future”.
Bellerin has been a major asset on and off the pitch for Arsenal, but given the club’s continued struggles in the Premier League and failure to make the Champions League in recent years, it’s little surprise to see him linked with a departure time and time again.
Based on this latest report by ESPN, however, Arsenal fans needn’t worry – with Arteta now in charge, things are looking up for the Gunners on the pitch, and even though it could be a tough summer on the transfer front, it doesn’t look like Bellerin will be going anywhere for the time being.
