Hector Bellerín remains determined to leave Arsenal this summer, and he’s growing frustrated at the club failing to secure a move for him.
David Ornstein reports for The Athletic that Hector Bellerín still wants to move on this summer, and he’s growing “extremely frustrated” at the fact the club don’t seem close to finalising a departure for him.
The player has already made his desire clear to Mikel Arteta and Edu, and he’s ready to take a pay cut if necessary. He’s hoping to make a push to make it back into the Spain squad this season ahead of the 2022 World Cup.
From Arsenal’s point of view, they just haven’t received the offers they want. They want a sale or a loan with an obligation to buy, but clubs like Inter Milan were only interested in a loan with an option.
Inter have seemingly since moved on to Denzel Dumfries, but there are still a couple of options on the table. Emerson Royal of Barcelona and Kieran Trippier of Atletico Madrid are both possible swap deals, but not advanced.
You can understand why Bellerín is frustrated, but there also isn’t a huge amount Arsenal can do. If Bellerín is a serious potential target for the likes of Barcelona and Atletico Madrid, then he’s an asset the club can’t let go for nothing.
If no one makes a serious offer then Arsenal don’t have the option to accept one, and that’s not their fault. It’s a difficult situation where no one is really in the wrong, and multiple parties are currently set to miss out.
