Arsenal have set an asking price for Hector Bellerin, amid interest from Atletico Madrid and Real Betis, according to a report.

CBS Sports report that Arsenal have indicated to interested parties that they want £20m for Hector Bellerin this summer.

Atletico Madrid are after the right-back, viewing him as a potential replacement for Kieran Trippier. Real Betis are also interested, but they won’t be able to meet the £20m asking price and can only afford a loan or free transfer – if that.

As previously covered, CBS confirm that Atletico will only move for Bellerin if they sell Trippier first. Manchester United hold a significant interest in the right-back, so that’s a strong possibility.

If Trippier ends up getting his desired move back to England and Atletico offer up the £20m Arsenal are asking for, the Gunners would presumably look to immediately reinvest that money in a replacement.

Calum Chambers finished the season with a good run of games in the position, but there was no real standout performer in the campaign. Any of them could easily end up moving on this summer, so Arsenal will be keeping an eye on the market.
