Arsenal News Transfer: According to the speculation of a transfer analyst named Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin does not want to remain with the club for the next season. The 27-year-old player is interested in signing with Real Betis, the club for which he played on loan during the previous campaign.
The Spaniard now has access to a few other opportunities. But the course of his career is still up in the air at this point.
After spending his childhood playing for Barcelona, Bellerin joined the development program at Arsenal in 2011. He has since made 31 appearances for the Under 23 team. It was in 2013 that he made his senior team debut. He went on to play a total of 239 times for the first team across all competitions. During the course of the games, he was responsible for nine goals and 29 assists.
Héctor Bellerín has no plans to continue at Arsenal next season. He hopes for Real Betis return but the deal is more than complicated because of financial reasons, it will take time. 🇪🇸 #AFC
Bellerín has received also other approaches and will decide his future soon.

However, in the summer of 2021, he moved to Real Betis on loan for the next season. Thus, he helped the club finish in fifth place in La Liga. During an outstanding season for the Spanish team, he made a total of 32 appearances across all competitions and contributed five assists.
Arsenal News Transfer: Arsenal lack depth at the right-back spot
He is now scheduled to go back to the Emirates. But according to Romano, he has no intention of staying with the north London club. Arsenal may be let down by the news since they currently lack depth at the right-back position.
Takehiro Tomiyasu, who was signed over the previous summer but struggled with injuries, only made 23 total appearances across all competitions. His backup Cedric Soares did not make a good impression in any of the 26 events in which he participated. Therefore, the Gunners might have retained Bellerin and concentrated their efforts on making improvements in other areas.
However, the Spaniard was expected to sign with Real Betis once again this summer. However, since Los Verdiblancos is now experiencing financial difficulties, the process of signing Bellerin might take some time for them.
