Arsenal have reportedly made another U-turn over the future of Hector Bellerin at the club, with manager, Mikel Arteta and the management making a final decision on the right-back, as per Sky Sport Italia.

Bellerin was heavily linked with a move away from the Emirates, with it being reported that Arsenal were keen to sell him considering that he was not in Arteta's plans after his poor 2020/21 season - which saw the Spaniard being relegated to fourth choice in the squad behind Bukayo Saka, Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares.

The Spaniard who had two-years left on his current contract with the Gunners was being linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan, with the club management keen to sell the star in order to get a sizeable transfer fee for him.

It was recently reported that Arsenal's technical director, Edu had met with Bellerin's representatives to inform them of the management's U-turn as they were willing to keep hold of him - but they have now reversed their decision again as Sky Sport Italia claim that they are now okay with sending the player out on loan.

Inter Milan's financial problems mean that they do not have the necessary funds to buy the Spaniard outright, with the Gunners now willing to send him out on loan to Italy, only if the deal contains an obligation to buy.

It is expected that this would become an obligation to buy if Bellerin hits certain conditions during the upcoming season and this deal would suit Inter considering that they need a new right-back after selling Achraf Hakimi to PSG for £52million earlier in the transfer window.

Bellerin who is understood to be keen to move to the San Siro has made 239 appearances for the Gunners so far, helping them win three FA Cup trophies.
