Earlier in the window, it was said that he wanted out of his £110,000 weekly deal without paying any penalties.
According to reports, Barcelona is interested in signing Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin, but has asked him to wait until the transfer window closes before making a decision.
The 27-year-old had reportedly expressed interest in leaving the Gunners, who were paying him £110,000 per week, earlier in the window, when other clubs were reportedly interested in signing him.
The Spaniard may be tempted by a move to Barcelona due to his time spent at the club’s legendary La Masia youth academy between 2003 and 2011.
According to Sport, a Spanish sports publication, Barcelona has asked Bellerin to hold off on signing with another club until the transfer window closes because he is their best choice at right back and Sergino Dest is likely to leave the Nou Camp after losing Xavi’s favor.
According to Gerard Romero, if Bellerin were to move to Barcelona, the transfer would be free of charge and he would earn a net income of €5 million a year. As the transfer deadline approaches, the likelihood of a move for Arsenal defender Bellerin to the La Liga club has increased, as Romero previously predicted.
Inquiries about Bellerin have reportedly been made by Barcelona in recent days, according to Marca. Bellerin would be a more cost-effective choice than other rumored targets Juan Foyth and Thomas Meunier.
Takehiro Tomiyasu, Cedric Soares, and even Ben White, who has recently played right back, have reportedly moved ahead of Bellerin in the pecking order under Arteta, prompting Bellerin to express interest in returning to Spain.
Los Verdiblancos want to make their loan to Real Betis permanent this transfer window, but they’ll have to beat out opposition from Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona.
