Arsenal have set their asking price for Hector Bellerin, with Inter Milan remaining the frontrunners to sign him this summer.
Football.London report that Hector Bellerin is keen on leaving Arsenal this summer, but Arsenal want to receive at least €20m for his sale. Whether they’ll actually receive that much is debatable, with most European teams struggling for funds right now.
Bellerin’s agent is speaking with a number of teams in Italy and Spain, and Inter Milan remain the favourites for his signature. He may have to push through a move to the club though, as they aren’t currently offering Arsenal’s asking price.
In fact, recent reports suggested that no club had yet made any offer at all for Bellerin. There are certainly clubs in the market for a right-back this summer, but they haven’t made offers for him yet.
Inter Milan CEO Giuseppe Marotta recently confirmed that Bellerin is a player they’re following, but he wouldn’t say any more on the subject.
From the player’s side, Matteo Moretto recently reported that Bellerin had spoken with Arsenal and asked to leave the club. He wants to go to Inter as a priority.
Bellerin was in the squad for the friendly against Millwall on Saturday, but he didn’t get any minutes on the pitch. It certainly doesn’t look like there’s much chance he’s in the lineup to face Brentford on the opening day of the league season.
