have gotten in touch withArsenal
and his entourage after talks between his agent and Arsenal.
have been planning to sign Bellerin as they have been looking for a right-sided player with the correct profile to replace Achraf Hakimi, who moved to Paris Saint-Germain.
The 26-year-old had already agreed terms with Inter and handed in a transfer request at Arsenal, however, the Gunners have been reluctant to accept Inter’s proposed terms of a loan move with an option to buy.
