Inter could face difficulties signing Hector Bellerin from Arsenal for next season, with the Gunners unwilling to allow the player to leave on loan unless there is an obligation to buy as part of the deal.

This according to Italian news outlet, who report that the Nerazzurri are still only willing to take the player on loan with a purchase option.

Bellerin is thought to be Inter’s top target to replace the departed Achraf Hakimi, with the Moroccan having left for Paris Saint-Germain.

The player wants to make the switch, and is even willing to take a salary reduction in order to do so, with the terms he has agreed with the Nerazzurri seeing him potentially earn €3.5 million net per season.

However, at the moment Arsenal are not interested in Inter’s offer, and the Nerazzurri could have to consider other alternatives in their search to replace Hakimi.
