The lowdown on Bellerin
Reports claiming that Real Betis are locked in talks with Arsenal to sign Hector Bellerin are false.
That is according to the club’s general manager, Federico Martinez Feria, who says no discussions about the Gunners defender have been held.
“It is notorious that in the summer preview there is a lot of news,” Feria said, as quoted by Muchodeporte. “In general, if you analyse at the end, the percentage of success is small.
“Bellerin’s case is that he is an excellent player. Arsenal, I understand, have his interests too, probably to place him [at the right club].
“We are not making, I say emphatically, an effort to bring the player [to Betis]. However, he is, why not, among the positions to cover and is a player of a perfect size for us.”
