Hector Bellerin has not played a lot in the last two years due to the knee injury that he sustained in the game against Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium in 2019. The Spanish right back has in the last few weeks been linked with a move to a number of top European clubs but new reports claim that he has made a decision on his future.
Hector Bellerin broke into the Arsenal team a few years ago and he has since then been the club’s first choice right back but he however started receiving a lot of criticism in Arsene Wenger’s final season but seemed to win back the fans in the first months of Unai Emery before he got injured. Bellerin has not played a lot this season due to that injury he sustained back in 2019 but that hasn’t stopped clubs from trying to sign him from Arsenal.
A report by ESPN claims that Hector Bellerin will be staying at Arsenal because he is very invested into Mikel Arteta’s vision for the North London club and this will be a big relief to the gooners that want the Spanish right back to stay at the Emirates Stadium. The report claims that they were fears that Bellerin would decide to just leave the gunners in the summer due to the club not progressing but the gooners are however lucky that Arteta’s charm has worked on him since it is said that he believes that the 38 year old boss might be the right person to take them forward.
Bellerin has three years left on his current contract at Arsenal and so it makes sense that they would be able to convince the 25 year old to stay since they have a lot of areas that need addressing in the summer and adding on needing a new starting right back would be a poor decision. ESPN added that Juventus and Inter Milan will have to keep waiting for some time before getting a chance to get Bellerin as he looks to be staying at the Emirates Stadium.
