La Gazzetta dello Sport reports Arsenal are considering loaning Hector Bellerin to Inter as the Spaniard emerges as the Nerazzurri’s No.1 target to replace Achraf Hakimi.
The Morocco international is set to join PSG in a €70m deal and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Bellerin is Simone Inzaghi’s favourite pick to replace the 22-year-old.
The new Inter coach believes Bellerin can adapt to a 3-5-2 system, although the Spaniard has always played in a four-man defence.
The defending Serie A title holders have opened talks with Arsenal to sign the 26-year-old who will see his contract expire in 2023.
According to the report, Inter want to sign Bellerin on loan with an option to buy in the region of €20m.
The Gunners are considering selling the player on a temporary deal, and talks between the two parties are ongoing.
Inter’s pre-season will begin on July 8 at the Suning Training centre. One month later, on August 8, they will meet Atletico Madrid in a friendly in Israel.
