With mere hours left until the summer transfer window closes, Arsenal are set to complete 3 outgoings today with Reiss Nelson, Maitland-Niles, and Hector Bellerin are close to completing a move away from the Emirates. While the club is planning on many outgoings, the news of incomings have left the fans disappointed, the fans expected the club to sign a new striker, a right-back, and a central midfielder before the deadline but the club has failed to do so, so far.
Maitland-Niles publicly plead the club to either let him play or let him leave, this happened after Arsenal reportedly rejected Everton’s loan offer for Ainsley. The player is reportedly very disappointed with the club and that he had a meeting with the gaffer Mikel Arteta and Edu to summon this situation and find a solution to this before the deadline. Maitland-Nile’s Instagram story stated ‘All I wanna do is go where I’m wanted and where I’m gonna play’ he even tagged the club, making it embarrassing for a club with status as Arsenal do.
Is Hector Bellerin leaving on a loan or a permanent move?
Next up is fellow right-back, Hector Bellerin who is set to leave on a loan for Spanish club Real Betis. The deal is expected to be a simple loan, but there have been murmurs of a loan with an option to buy as well. Spanish giants Barcelona were interested in signing Hector as well but offered only 10m in response to Arsenal’s asking price of 20m, this allowed Betis to swoop in and hijack the negotiations.
Bellerin could join Betis on loan. Not done yet, but 'very close' according to one source close to the player. Barca was an option until yesterday. Bellerin will lose money if the deal gets done, but wants a move. Betis looking to move a player on today to make space. pic.twitter.com/jvW0wXKS18

Hale end’s product Reiss Nelson has completed his move to Feyenoord on a season-long loan, the winger extended another year with Arsenal as his previous contract was due to end this year. Nelson seems to have an unlikely future, allowing him to complete a move to the Dutch side. With less than few hours to go before the transfer window slams shut, it will be interesting to see how Arsenal do their business.
