Inter Have New Plan B If Arsenal Do Not Budge on Bellerin Loan Deal

Hector Bellerin has agreed to personal terms with Inter and is eager to join. However, the negotiation between the two clubs started on the wrong foot. Arsenal have shut the door on the possibility of letting him leave on an initial loan. The Nerazzurri are hoping the will of the player will make the Gunners reconsider their position, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

The Spanish fullback has come to terms with Inter on a five-year contract and would make €3.5M net per year plus bonuses. They approached Arsenal offering a loan with option to buy, but they were harshly rebuffed. The London-based club wants at least €20M to sell him permanently.

Given the difficulties, Inter are weighing other options to replace Achraf Hakimi. Denzel Dumfries is going to leave PSV after shining in the Euro and has a €20M+ evaluation. His agent offered him to the Nerazzurri, but the formula might not be the right one in this case as well. Everton have made a serious move to sign the Dutch international, the Italian newspaper informs.

A more attainable name could be Nahuel Molina, who broke out at Udinese in the second half of last season. He is coming off the Copa America victory with Argentina. He has a considerable price tag too, but the relationship between the clubs is smoother. The Zebrette have already cashed in on Juan Musso and Rodrigo De Paul this summer and could be more open to a loan. The 23-year-old fullback has bagged 2 goals and provided 5 assists in his first Serie A campaign.
