Inter are in talks with Arsenal for the loan signing of Hector Bellerin as a replacement for Achraf Hakimi, but should they not be able to agree a deal for the Spaniard they will turn to Roma’s Alessandro Florenzi or Chelsea’s Davide Zappacosta.

This according to Italian news outlet FCInter1908, who report that the Nerazzurri want to sign Bellerin on loan with an option to buy, but the Gunners are holding out for a deal which would include an obligation to buy.

With Hakimi officially sold to Paris Saint-Germain, replacing the Moroccan has become a priority at the Giuseppe Meazza, and Bellerin’s name has come up as their first choice.

However they could struggle to come to an agreement with Arsenal, with the London club’s preference thought to be a permanent sale over a loan arrangement – the Gunners are thought to be giving consideration to a deal for a loan with an obligation after some negotiations, but will still not agree to a deal for a loan which only contains a purchase option.

If the Nerazzurri are unable to reach an agreement for Bellerin on their preferred terms, then they will move on to Zappacosta and Florenzi as backup options for the position.
