Arsenal want Hector Bellerin to sign a contract extension, with Inter Milan waiting to swoop if talks go south, according to reports.
The Mirror claim Arsenal are keen for Bellerin to sign an extension on his current contract, which already lasts until the summer of 2023. The player isn’t rushing to make a decision, however, wanting to see how the side progresses under Mikel Arteta.
Inter Milan are weighing up a bid as a result, as Antonio Conte is a fan. The Mirror expect Inter would need to pay around £27m to pry Bellerin away.
This follows a recent report from ESPN claiming Bellerin will stay put with Arsenal this summer. They report that the player is fully invested in Arteta’s vision, even if he does want to see some improvement from the team.
ESPN also mentioned interest from Inter Milan, as well as Juventus. For now, however, it doesn’t seem likely Bellerin will move to Italy in the upcoming window.
Bellerin made 16 appearances for Arsenal before the Premier League shutdown, after returning from an ACL injury. He was still slowly rediscovering his form at that point, but he’s looking sharp now ahead of the restart.
