Arsenal vice-captain Hector Bellerin is being reported to be the subject of an Italian Serie A side. The German has been one of the major main stays in the Gunners squad but with plans on ground to carry out a complete sweep-over of the defense, it might be time for the full-back to call it quits.
In response, the Gunners are lining up MerihDemiral as a direct replacement should Bellerin go. Although, it’d be much harder for him to exit unceremoniously as he is now bound had Wenger, his mentor still be at the club, it remains understandable if old guards feel they no longer fit into whatever direction Arsenal is currently going.
Leonardo Bonnucci and Mathijs De Ligt has made life hard for MerihDemiral and a transfer from Juventus to Arsenal may be the only thing that can save him from not dying on the bench while warming it.
Arsenal is not all that rosy itself, but a move to North London will automatically have him starting matches. As the Euros 2020 continue to draw close, having active play time at club level becomes as important as anything else.
Bellerin leaving Arsenal would be one of the last thing Wenger imagined and although, he is no longer at the club, the site of seeing soldiers who embodied everything he wanted the club to be exit will remain painful to watch. For all his punditry sessions and current FIFA appointment, Arsenal will forever be in his heart.
Hector’s exit will still give other young players a chance though. In a caretaker manager like Ljungberg, the young academy lads are rest assured of having opportunities thrown at them. Even Calum Chambers who made waves a while back can use this as an opportunity to come back.
