A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Mucho Deporte mentioned that Real Betis are working on a deal to sign Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin permanently this summer. It has been claimed that the Spanish side want to acquire the services of the talented defender from the Gunners in this off-season.

Bellerin’s Impressive Form In Spanish Football

Bellerin had a decent loan spell at Betis in the previous campaign as he put in a few impressive displays for them down the right flank. The Badalona-born talent participated in 32 matches for the Spanish outfit last season, picking up five assists in the process across multiple competitions.

The 27-year-old proved his worth by averaging 2.3 tackles, 1.0 interceptions, 2.4 clearances, 1.1 key passes and 1.0 dribbles per 90 minutes in La Liga. He even took care of the ball when distributing possession from the right-wing, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 77.8% in the Spanish top tier (stats via whoscored).

Real Betis Working On A Deal To Sign Bellerin From Arsenal: Good Move For Everyone Involved?

Bellerin is a solid tackler of the ball and can secure the ball back for his side on the defensive end of the field. He usually clears the danger when the opposition are on the front foot and can make a few clever runs with the ball down the right flank. Bellerin is primarily a right-back but can even fill in as a right-winger if needed.

The Spanish talent can even engineer some decent openings for his teammates in the opposition half. However, he is currently surplus to requirements at the Emirates Stadium as he is not guaranteed a regular starting spot in Mikel Arteta‘s first XI.

At 27, Bellerin is playing at his prime and could be a key asset for Real Betis where he had a solid loan spell last season. Hence, Arsenal should think about cutting him loose as it will be a good move for both the player and the North London club.

Bellerin can benefit for getting regular game time in the top tier of Spanish football while the Gunners can finally get his name off their wagebill during this summer transfer window.
