Big news as Bellerin swap deal with Spanish giants ‘a genuine prospect’ for Arsenal this summer window
A potential swap deal involving Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin and Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier is reportedly ‘a genuine prospect’ this summer window.
Bellerin has been that has been at Arsenal for many seasons now and is one player that fans have both become frustrated with and happy to see back in the squad on a weekly basis playing the game he loves.
But the 26-year-old Gunners ace is growing increasingly frustrated with life under Mikel Arteta and has been linked with a move away for several months, with the likes of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona just two clubs that are interested in the player
He was an unused substitute for the club’s defeat at newly-promoted Brentford on Friday, and recent reports have claimed that Bellerin now wants to return to Spain and both Atletico and Barcelona are keen.
Arteta is believed to be keen on getting a player in exchange for the full-back, with both Trippier and Barca’s Emerson mentioned as potential options, and Now Football London claims the Bellerin and Trippier swap is ‘a genuine prospect’.
Madrid do not have alot of money to spend on Bellerin and the Gunners will not meet that £35 million asking price for Trippier, meaning that both clubs could agree to that summer swap deal.
Look, if Bellerin wants to depart the club this transfer window, then the Gunners should let him leave. There are many options out there that could do a better job, sop even though Trippier is not as effective in attack as the Spaniard, he is a solid defender
He would add a bit of experience and quality to that back-line, which has been missing over the last few seasons
