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.

It’s always tense when Arsenal go up against bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur, and that’s even true when it’s a pre-season friendly with nothing on the line. Still, there are things far more important than football, and we saw that over the weekend with the introduction of Bukayo Saka to the pitch.

Tottenham fans around the stadium gave a fantastic round of applause to the young Englishman after he took to the pitch, really cementing the legacy he’s built for himself in the wake of Euro 2020. As we all know he missed the crucial penalty in the final shootout against Italy to hand the Azzurri the trophy, leading to some horrific racial abuse on social media.

Is St Totteringham’s Day set to return? 0

Posted on May 21, 2021 by Harry Kettle

It’s been a fairly dreadful season for Arsenal in the Premier League and, to an extent, in the Europa League as well, because they didn’t accomplish their end goal of actually winning the whole thing. Still, somehow, four wins on the bounce have left Arsenal in a decent position as we head into the final game of the Premier League campaign.

The Gunners know that while they may be situated in ninth place right now, there’s a chance they could rise as high as seventh place with a win over Brighton on Sunday. Sure, they could also drop to 10th if they lose and Leeds win, but it’s always nice to be optimistic.

It’s been a long time coming, but Arsenal have the chance to really put themselves back in the top six mix as they prepare to lock horns with rivals Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon in the North London derby. These two sides absolutely hate each other and we all know that to be true, and today, the stakes are as high as they’ve been in a long time.

This isn’t going to be the same as a usual derby day and we completely understand that, but even with that in mind, we tend to believe it’s just as special.

The NLD is upon us and we’d say it’s going to be pretty important for the future of this club. That might sound a little bit overdramatic, but it’s true. Arsenal and Tottenham are still fairly close to one another both in terms of quality and in the Premier League table, making this upcoming clash all the more intriguing.
