Could Arsenal be ready to sell Hector Bellerin? 0

Posted on March 13, 2018 by David Nugent

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal could be willing to sell highly-rated full-back Hector Bellerin for a fee of £50million.

The Spanish international is highly regarded throughout Europe and was previously linked with a move to Manchester City and return to Barcelona, where he came through the world famous La Masia academy.

Struggled to find his best form

Arguably, Bellerin has struggled to find his best form in recent seasons. He has even spent time out of the team both this season and at the end of the last campaign.

According to Metro, former Manchester City manager and current Hebei China Fortune boss Manuel Pellegrini is on the shortlist to replace Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger when he finally leaves the club.

The Gunners continue to fall down the ranks this season both domestically and in Europe, having lost four consecutive games since 2002. Many fans are wondering just how low things can go throughout the remainder of the campaign, as the calls for Wenger to walk away or be sacked grow stronger and stronger.

The search begins

Hard to find positives for Arsenal at the moment 1

On Thursday night, Arsenal suffered a second 3-0 defeat against Manchester City in less than a week. In all truth, it was not a surprising outcome, as Pep Guardiola’s side are by far the best team in the country.

Arsenal were simply not good enough to compete with the champions-elect. We knew that before kick-off. In fact, many people probably knew that before the start of the season.

Europa League the last salvation

However, the defeat means that the Gunners remain ten points behind fourth-place Tottenham. It is hard to see any positives at the minute for the Gunners. The team’s last salvation this season is the Europa League, a cup much maligned by many connected with Arsenal.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is the talk of the town at the moment with Frenchman being heavily linked with imminent departure following yet another disappointing result.

Back-to-back defeats at the hands of Manchester City – first in the Carabao Cup final last weekend and in the Premier League on Thursday night – have put the Arsenal boss under increasing pressure.

The fans are once again turning against the Premier League’s longest serving manager who could be set for an immediate end to his 22-year tenure at the north London club.

On Thursday night, Arsenal suffered a 3-0 home defeat against league leaders Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal offered the first attacking threat, as Ederson smothered at the feet of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on seven minutes. A minute later, Aaron Ramsey fired a powerful effort towards goal that hit Vincent Kompany, only for Ederson to produce a good save.

Soon afterwards Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero fired into the side-netting from a tight angle. On 13 minutes, Henrikh Mkhitaryan shot straight at Ederson after good work from Ramsey and Danny Welbeck.

On Thursday night, Arsenal host Manchester City at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League. The two met last Sunday in the Carabao Cup final, which City won comfortably 3-0.

Arsenal are struggling to keep pace with the top-four, with fourth-place Tottenham now ten points ahead of the Gunners in the race for Champions League spots.

The Gunners head into this game on the back of three defeats in their last four games in all outings. Arsene Wenger’s side have been unconvincing in the Premier League too, winning just two of their last seven games in the English top-flight.

Arsenal’s 3-0 defeat against Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday was not completely unexpected. The Citizens are runaway league leaders in the Premier League and a cut above most teams in England, if not Europe.

People can talk about a foul for the first goal or an offside for the second goal, but in truth, City were just too good for Arsenal and the Citizens were not even at full pelt. The sheer gap between the two teams was frightening for Arsenal and the fans.

Arsenal suffered a 3-0 defeat against Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday, as Pep Guardiola won his first silverware in England. Goals from Sergio Aguero, Vincent Kompany and David Silva were enough to seal a comfortable victory for the Citizens.

Arsenal had the first goal threat of the game, as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found himself with a gaping goal, only for Kyle Walker to tackle the striker before Claudio Bravo saved the rebound from the striker who was just a few yards out.

On Sunday afternoon, Manchester City and Arsenal clash at Wembley in the final of the Carabao Cup.

Manchester City no longer have the quadruple to aim for this season after exiting the FA Cup. However, the Citizens can still complete the treble of Premier League, Champions League and League Cup.

Pep Guardiola’s side has dispatched West Brom, Leicester, Wolves and Bristol City in the previous rounds. Arsenal should represent slightly more of a challenge for the Citizens, as Guardiola looks to win his first trophy at the Manchester club. If they succeed in winning the trophy it will be their third triumph in the competition in the past five seasons.

Arsenal face a massive test on Sunday as they travel to Wembley to play against Premier League behemoth Manchester City in the EFL Cup final. Both sides will feel they can win the contest, but Pep Guardiola’s men will be favourites, and rightly so.

The Gunners have been poor this season in comparison to their next opponents as they sit 27 points short of City with just 11 games of the season left. In Europe, City have been outstanding in the Champions League, while Arsenal have had to settle for the Europa League.
