Inter could receive good news in their pursuit of Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin, with the Spaniard’s current club increasingly open to allowing him to depart on loan with a purchase option.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Gunners have softened somewhat on their initial refusal to agree to the Nerazzurri’s preferred formula for the 26-year-old.
Bellerin is among the Nerazzurri’s top targets to replace Achraf Hakimi following the Moroccan’s departure for Paris Saint-Germain, and the player wants a move having agreed terms with the club and handed in his transfer request at Arsenal.
However, talks for the Spaniard have been stalled, with Inter only willing to consider a move for him on loan with an option to buy on a permanent basis, owing to their financial situation.
The Gunners do not like this arrangement, and are thought to have made clear their stance that they would only part ways with Bellerin on a permanent deal or on loan with a mandatory obligation to buy.
However, the London club are feeling the pressure with the player and his agent working hard to convince them to accept Inter’s offer, and they could relent and re-initiate talks soon.
