Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerín is willing to take a wage cut if it means that he can still earn a move away from the club in the current window.
The 26-year-old is the longest current serving player at the Emirates, but has fallen out of favour under Mikel Arteta recently, with injuries having robbed him of his former trademark pace.
He was an unused substitute against Brentford on Friday night with Calum Chambers preferred ahead of him. And when Chambers was with drawn with ten minutes to go, it was new signing Nuno Taves, nominally a left-back, who was chosen to replace him.
Now Bellerín has made it clear to Arteta and Technical Director Edu that he sees hs future way for the club, and the measures he is personally prepared to take to make such a move possible.
Earlier in the summer he was linked with a move to Inter Milan but talks ended when the Serie A club were unable to match Arsenal’s demands.
