Hector Bellerin could join Inter from Arsenal this summer, but the outcome of negotiations between the clubs on his transfer could be determined by the nature of a loan deal for his services.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the Gunners are still hoping to send the 26-year-old away on loan with a €20 million obligation to buy, whilst the Nerazzurri still prefer that the loan include only an option to buy.
The Nerazzurri are accelerating their search for a player to replace Achraf Hakimi on the right after the Moroccan’s departure for Paris Saint-Germain was confirmed last week, and Bellerin is a top target.
The player is open to a move and would like to leave his current club for Inter, but the move will only happen should Inter and Arsenal be able to come to an agreement on the terms of a loan deal.
It is reported that the loan could include an obligation to buy that is triggered by certain conditions being met, but it remains to be seen whether the two clubs will be able to reach an agreement on what these conditions would be.
