Arsenal continue to rebuff Inter’s efforts to sign Hector Bellerin on loan, with the English club insistent on the inclusion of an obligation to buy in the deal.

This according to Italian broadcaster SportMediaset, who report that the Nerazzurri are hoping to sign the player on a loan deal which only includes the option for purchase on a permanent basis.

Inter are currently still pressing for the 26-year-old, who is seen by the club as the ideal replacement for the departed Achraf Hakimi after the Moroccan’s move to Paris Saint-Germain.

It remains to be seen whether the stances of either clubs could change, with the Nerazzurri hoping that the player’s desire to leave Arsenal and sign will play a major factor in the eventual outcome of negotiations.

However, for now the Gunners are refusing to budge and the Nerazzurri can only continue in their efforts to convince the London-based club.
