According to BeSoccer, Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin is ready to give up one year’s wages to leave the Emirates this summer.

The Spaniard has been on the Gunners’ books for over a decade now. He came to North London from Barcelona as a teenager and made a brilliant 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 he had a fantastic campaign there.

Now, he’s desperate to return to the Benito Villamarín Stadium.

Bellerin was summoned back for pre-season by Mikel Arteta this summer. The Spaniard has featured in a few of the Gunners’ friendly games and has even worn the captain’s armband on occasion.

However, it is clear that Bellerin has no future at Arsenal, which is why he’s desperate to return to Betis, where he had such an incredible time last season.

Arsenal have made their demands known to Betis, but the Spanish outfit are struggling to meet the Gunners’ valuation. If Edu doesn’t budge, a move could collapse, which is why Bellerin has offered to do something that very few players have done before.

The report claims that the full-back has offered to give up every penny he’s owed in the remainder of his contract, which expires in 2023. He hopes that will convince Arsenal to let him go this summer.

TBR View:

Bellerin, branded as an ‘exceptional player’ by Arteta, has just under a year left on his contract at Arsenal.

He earns £5.72 million a year at the Emirates, and if the report is to be believed, he’s prepared to give that up just to leave the club.

Arsenal have every right to hold out for what they feel is Bellerin’s actual value, but at some point, the Gunners will have to soften their demands too, especially if no club tables what they’re expecting.

Whether Edu will agree to do that in the coming weeks, however, remains to be seen.
