Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin is reportedly attracting interest from Serie A champions Inter Milan. Inter are in the market for a new right-back this summer.

According to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, PSG and Inter have agreed terms and the move ‘will be announced soon’. Arsenal said to value Bellerin at around £17m.

However, the Gunners are likely to prefer a sale as they bid to raise funds for their own summer spending spree. Inter are also said to be considering a move for Chelsea’s Davide Zappacosta. Bellerin, meanwhile, has also been linked with the likes of Atletico Madrid, Real Betis and Villarreal.

Former Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna believes the time may be right for him to leave the Emirates.

Speaking to Goal, Sagna said: “Hector has been there for years. He started playing not long after I left, so he has been in the team for like six years.

“And a bit like I felt, he probably feels that he wants to challenge himself because he has been there for a long time. It’s nothing to do with the club, nothing to do with winning cups or whatever.

“At some point if you want to progress, in my mind you need to go somewhere and challenge yourself and start from zero again. This is how I felt. Arsenal was my club and is still my beloved club, but after seven years I had the feeling that because I was part of the house, even when I didn’t deserve to play, I would have played.

“It’s quite tricky as a player. Hector’s still young, he still has five good years to play at the top level and he can do it. So, if he left now, I wouldn’t be surprised.”
