Report: Arsenal open to letting 26-year-old ace leaving this window on one specific condition

Arsenal are reportedly open to allowing Hector Bellerin to leave on loan this summer to Inter Milan. But only if the Serie A champions can guarantee payment for the defender.

According to CalcioMercato, Inter are interested in signing Bellerin on loan with an option to buy.

However, Arsenal are open to loaning the 26-year-old to Italy if the Serie A side agrees to an obligation to buy clause in the deal.

Arsenal are open to Bellerin loan deal

The Gunners are keen to sell Bellerin this summer. The defender lost his first-team spot last season to the likes of Cedric Soares and Calum Chambers.

As per reports, Arsenal are hoping to move on the Catalan for a fee of around £17m.

With Bellerin’s deal with Arsenal expiring in two years, Inter have some bargaining power in negotiations to sign the Spanish international this summer.

Indeed, the Milan giants are also in the money. The Serie A champions recently sold Achraf Hakimi to PSG for a reported £60m according to Sky Sports News.

Insider View:

Bellerin’s time with Arsenal is at an end. Yet the Gunners need to ensure that they earn some kind of money from the 26-year-old this summer.

Indeed, with Inter recently making a hefty sum for Hakimi, they now have the funds to bring in a replacement this summer. And Arsenal have to stand their ground over the fee they want for Bellerin.

Whilst the defender was unimpressive last season for Arsenal, a new environment and club could be what’s needed to see Bellerin regain his form. And Inter will have to cough up the money if they want to sign the fullback.
