Bellerin edging closer to Arsenal exit

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin is reportedly close to leaving the club with interest from Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan.

The right-back has spent his entire career with the Gunners, and he is likely to move on during the ongoing transfer window.

According to The Star, Bellerin's representative will fly to London this week to speed up the defender's move away from the Gunners.

Bellerin dropped down the selection order last season. Calum Chambers was preferred ahead of him during the final months.

The club are open to sanctioning his sale, but are reluctant to accept a loan deal. They are eyeing a straight cash move worth €25m.

Atletico have a long-term interest in Bellerin, and they may make a move if Kieran Trippier makes the switch to Manchester United.

Inter have identified the Spaniard as a replacement for Achraf Hakimi, but they are only looking for a loan move with an option to buy.

Arsenal are likely to make a decision in the next few days.
