Hector Bellerin’s agent has met with Villarreal as part of a tour of several Spanish clubs interested in him, according to a report.
TheAFCBell report that Hector Bellerin’s agent recently arrived at Villarreal’s training headquarters to meet with club officials. He’s reportedly on an expanded tour of Spain to the offices of several clubs to express an interest in Bellerin.
This isn’t the first we’ve heard of Villarreal’s interest in Bellerin, with Matteo Moretto also recently reporting that Unai Emery’s side are on the right-back’s case. He added that Sevilla are also interested, and the player is prioritising a move to Italy or Spain.
CBS Sports previously reported that Arsenal have indicated to interested parties that they want £20m for Bellerin this summer.
Atletico Madrid are another club after the right-back, viewing him as a potential replacement for Kieran Trippier.
CBS confirm that Atletico will only move for Bellerin if they sell Trippier first. But Manchester United hold a significant interest in the right-back, so that’s a strong possibility.
Bellerin made 35 appearances for Arsenal this season, but it’s been clear for a couple of months that he’s on the way out this summer. It’s just a matter of finding the right buyer now.
