Bellerin eyes permanent Betis switch 0

Hector Bellerin has revealed that he would be open to joining Real Betis on a permanent deal once his loan from Arsenal expires.

The Spaniard joined at the age of 16, which is now a decade ago. Having passed through the Under-18 and Under-23 sides, he earned a place in the first team squad in 2014 and has made a total of 239 appearances since, with nine goals and 29 assists from the right defensive flank, while playing under three different managers.

Deadline Day business: Bellerin leaves, Tomiyasu arrives 0

The two transfers that were announced as imminent were completed late on Tuesday, the final day of the summer transfer window. Hector Bellerin has left the club to join Real Betis on loan, and Tahekiro Tomiyasu has arrived on a permanent deal from Bologna. Also, goalkeeper Alex Runarsson has joined Belgian side OH Leuven on loan.

The decade Bellerin spent at the Emirates has been marked by 239 first-team appearances, three FA Cup trophies and two Community Shields. There can be no doubt that the Spaniard gave all he had, even though his efforts were severely hampered by injuries. There is also a strange feeling that his time as an Arsenal player coincides with a period of the club gradually losing ground on their Premier League rivals, though that can hardly be put on his account.

Arsenal have reached an agreement with Real Betis over a loan move for Hector Bellerin, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic.

The 26-year-old right-back has been keen to leave the club for a while now. He was first linked with Paris Saint-Germain, then Inter Milan as PSG signed Achraf Hakimi, but it seems he’ll be spending the rest of the 2021-22 in his homeland instead. The deal between the two clubs does not include an option for the La Liga side to make the switch permanent.

Hector Bellerin has been linked with departure from Arsenal for a while now. Paris Saint-Germain had reportedly expressed an interest in his services before moving on to and eventually signing Achraf Hakimi from Inter Milan. Then it was Inter who wanted him as a replacement for Hakimi, but though talks were held, no deal was agreed.

The most Inter were willing to offer was a season-long loan with an option to buy, which would, under certain conditions, eventually become an obligation, but the Gunners weren’t willing to accept anything other than a permanent deal or a loan with an immediate obligation to buy. The talks fell through, and Inter, like PSG, moved on to an alternative target and have now completed the signing of Denzel Dumfries from PSV Eindhoven.

It seems Hector Bellerin is set to remain at Arsenal beyond this summer following heavy speculation about his future.

The Spaniard was initially targeted by Paris Saint-Germain, who were looking for a right-back capable of causing the opposition a lot of problems out wide, but the Ligue 1 giants eventually turned their attention to Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi to provide that kind of contribution, and they soon completed the deal for the former Real Madrid man.

It’s been a busy transfer window for Arsenal as the stories about a squad overhaul persist into August, the very month when the Premier League restarts. The club have completed three signings so far, left-back Nuno Tavares, midfielder Albert Sambi Lokonga and centre-back Ben White, and by all accounts, they’re working on getting a couple more in before they take on newly promoted Brentford in the opening round.

But in order to secure the funds necessary to go through with their plans, they will have to get a few outgoing deals done as well. According to the Express, they’re looking at seven players to help them in that aspect.

Arsenal have completed and confirmed the signing of Nuno Tavares from Benfica on a long-term contract.

Having risen through the ranks of Benfica’s academy, the 21-year-old spent a season with the ‘B’ side at the Portuguese club before earning his place in the first-team squad in 2019. Overall, the young left-back played 41 matches in all competitions for Benfica under his belt, 25 of which came in 2020-21.

The deal which has seen his move to the Emirates sealed, according to Fabrizio Romano, is set to cost Arsenal an initial amount of €8 million, with add-ons devised to take the total amount a bit higher than that.

The transfer market is looking very lively for practically every club in the world at the moment. Arsenal are no exception of course, particularly given their needs in that aspect and the squad investments so eagerly anticipated since the Kroenkes promised to back manager Mikel Arteta this summer.

The latest rumours on that front involve Hector Bellerin and Emile Smith Rowe, as well as Benfica left-back Nuno Tavares.

Will Bellerin leave? 0

At the age of just 26, Hector Bellerin has already spent a decade in North London between the youth team and his professional debut in 2013. For quite a few years he was seen as one of the first names on the teamsheet for the Gunners but in recent times, he’s been falling down the pecking order with poor decision making and pace that isn’t quite up to scratch.

Bellerin can always pull a rabbit out of the hat when we least expect it because he’s got that kind of performance in his back pocket just waiting to use it – but consistency is key. He needs to be able to bring the heat every single week and we haven’t seen that for a long, long time.
