Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin has handed in a transfer request.
The Spaniard is the longest-serving player at the Emirates under Mikel Arteta currently, but found himself out of favour in the second half of last season,
Once regarded as one of the best attacking full-backs in the league, injuries, including one o to his ACL which ruled him out of the game for almost a year, have robbed him of a yard of pace, whilst his form has been indifferent.
The Gunners are open to the idea of selling him, and but are prepared to look at loan deals provided that they contain a subsequent option to buy, similar as they have just concluded with Marseille for Matteo Guendouzi.
Bellerin wants to join Inter Milan, and discussions between the two clubs are already underway. However, negotiations could falter because the cash-strapped Italian club just want a loan, with no obligation included in the deal.
