According to a report in Fichajes, Arsenal have finally made a decision regarding the future of their right-back Hector Bellerin.
Bellerin has fallen down the pecking order under Mikel Arteta and as per the rumours, a transfer fee of €10 million should be enough to trigger a sale this summer.
In a recent interview, ex-PL player Allan Hutton claimed that Bellerin has no future at the club and there’s no chance he can revive his career at the Emirates Stadium.
He told Football Insider: “I think his time might be up if I’m totally honest. Before his serious injuries he was lightning quick, he was a regular and he looked like he’d probably be there forever. It’s not quite worked out that way the last couple of seasons.
“I think it was the right decision for him to go out on loan and play. Back home in his own country, he probably felt good being back there and things like that, so it was a good move.
“Now [Takehiro] Tomiyasu has come in and I think when he’s fit he’s been exceptional. I don’t see Bellerin pushing him out.”

Will Arsenal be able to find a buyer for Hector Bellerin in time?
Hector Bellerin spent the previous season out on loan at Real Betis and since the end of the season, the Spanish side have been eager to sign him up permanently. Last campaign, he played in 22 La Liga games for the club and had a rating of 7.13 out of 10.
However, Betis have not been too eager to pay a huge sum for the right-back and now it remains to be seen if they are willing to pay €10m or not.
Atletico Madrid have also shown an interest in Hector Bellerin and this price will suit them very nicely. Apart from these two Spanish clubs, a few Italian clubs have also been linked with the 27-year-old.
Mikel Arteta has no use of the right-back and since his current deal expires in 2023, €10m is a very justifiable price tag. Also, the Gunners are only interested in making the maximum profit out of Bellerin’s sale so whichever club is willing to meet their financial demands will be the ones to get their hands on Hector Bellerin.
