Inter have reportedly entered talks with Arsenal over full-back Hector Bellerin, who has been targeted as Achraf Hakimi’s replacement at the Giuseppe Meazza.

Sky Sport Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio reports the Nerazzurri are already looking for the Morocco international’s replacement ahead of 2021-22.

Hakimi is set to join Paris Saint-Germain, as the two clubs have reportedly reached an agreement for the transfer of the 22-year-old.

Inter are thus looking for his replacement on the transfer market and Di Marzio claims Arsenal have set a €20m price-tag on Bellerin.

Inter will reportedly offer a loan deal with an option to buy next summer and have already entered talks with the Gunners.

Chelsea defender Davide Zappacosta remains an alternative, should Inter struggle to reach an agreement with Arsenal over Bellerin.

The 26-year-old Spanish right-back has a deal until June 2023 in London and arrived from Barcelona’s youth team in July 2011.

Bellerin has since played 239 games for the Londoners, contributing nine goals and 29 assists in the process.
