Report: Betis keen on permanent deal for Bellerin

According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Betis are keen to retain Hector Bellerin when his current loan deal expires in the summer

In search of a new challenge, the 27-year-old moved to the Estadio Benito Villamarín last August and has enjoyed his time in Seville making 28 appearances across all competitions so far this season.

The club are aware that the right-back, who supported Betis as a kid, wants to stay in Spain and that Arsenal are open to a sale with the player’s contract ending in the summer of 2023.

Having been on the books at Arsenal since 2011, nobody would begrudge Hector this move. The key is finding a price that suits all parties. That’s going to be easier said than done but hopefully with the effects of the pandemic easing there should be more liquidity in the market.

It would help if Betis qualify for the Champions League. Like Arsenal, they sit fifth in the table, however, the gap on the three sides above them – Barcelona, Atletico Madrid and local rival Sevilla – is just three points.

I went to see Betis a few weeks ago in the hope of seeing Hector play, he was out injured. Typical Bellerin. The few games I’ve seen of Betis on TV, Hector has been pretty good down the right. Good luck to him if he stays. Amazing stadium and a good team to watch.

Blogs, love that you’re donating the entire month to UNICEF. Would also be great donating to nature-focused NGOs. Lots of people are affected by the climate and it’ll only get worse. Would be good to do something there as well (eventually) if you fancy jt

That’s a good idea, definitely something to think about.

Best for all parties

Can he not just pop back for our last 9 games and then go?

Dr Zebra

And then just go right back..

Good luck to Hector.

A good servant for this club.

He took the initiative in the 2020 FA Cup Final to do something brave in a close game and set up Auba on his way to our winner.

Lord knows we could use him now in the squad. I wish him well.

I always thought he would be captain eventually and, in many ways, he did function that way before he left (I think he represented the Arsenal players in those covid-related captians’ meetings with Jordan Henderson and pretty much everything involving community and social issues). Regardless of where he was born, an Arsenal product as a football player–like Cesc.

Of all the players we have lost/are losing in the past couple of years, I think he is the only one Arteta wanted to keep. For me, nothing but good feelings and good memories.

Hector is a great player and a great guy. Good luck and see you in the Champions League next season!!!!!!

Another great player who never really fully recovered from an injury. I remember one incident when he was caught out of position on a breakaway, but was so quick that he caught up with, passed, and tackled the opponent. Outside of the frenetic pace of the EPL, he’s probably still quick enough. I hope he does well and has a great rest of his career.

This is a great development for Hector and I hope it materialises.
