REPORTS: Transfer Blow For Arsenal As Target Says He Is Happy At His Club

The summer transfer window is fast approaching and it seems Arsenal will be looking for a right back as the future of Hector Bellerin is still in doubt. One of Arsenal's right back target has given a transfer blow to the gunners after what he said in his last interview.

Hector Bellerin was reportedly close to leaving Arsenal last summer as he wanted a new adventure in his career. Coming to realization of this, PSG and Barcelona were said to be interested in his signature last summer but a possible move didn't materialise as Mikel Arteta convinced him to stay.

Since his last serious injury, he hasn't been the player he was and this season, he has put in series of mixed performances for the club. His lack of defensive prowess has resulted in many fans urging the club to cash in on him and bring in someone who is better in his defensive duties. Recently, the Spanish right back has lost his place to Callum Chambers as Arteta has favoured the England man over Bellerin. His exemption from the starting Lineup has further add more credibility to the rumours of him leaving.

A few players have been linked with Arsenal with Inter Milan Achraf Hakimi as one of them. Top sport outlet have confirmed that Mikel Arteta admires the profile of the player and will try to sign him this summer should they cash in on Bellerin. But the player has recently given Arsenal a transfer after he said he is happy at Inter Milan.

Snapping Achraf Hakim won't be an easy task considering the fact that he just joined less than one year but this is football, anything can happen. Achraf Hakim had a successful loan spell at Borussia Dortmund before he moved finally to Inter. Though he is not an all round number two as he best fit in a 3-4-3 formation. Arsenal signing may suggest they want to use the 3-4-3 formation or change formation base in the opponent.

Would you prefer Achraf Hakim over Bellerin?
