Arsenal fans have been left concerned after comments from Hector Bellerin’s agent over a potential move away from the club in the near future.
The Spaniard’s representative admitted that the full-back ‘likes Italy’ and that there is interest from an Italian side that he could not mention (Sky Sports in Italy via Metro).
Bellerin had been out of action since January when he suffered a knee injury in the win over Chelsea, before returning to top-flight action in the 2-0 defeat away to Leicester City as he played the full 90 minutes.
The £36m-rated man (as per Transfermarkt) has been at the club since moving to north London at the age of 16 in 2012. He’s made his way up the ranks and gone on to make 186 appearances for the Premier League giants, winning two FA Cups and two Community Shields in the process (via Transfermarkt).
After building up a warm connection with the Spanish full-back, fans were worried over a move away from the club for the 24-year-old as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the north London faithful:
“Give me an all star team and I’ll replace it with 16 pieces of wood and cabellos”

That’s what you get when you boo your own players. Bellerin got abuse himself previously too. You want to play for fans who are loyal to you and won’t get on your back.

Do Arsenal need to sack Emery to finish in the top 4?
Arsenal fans, how sad will it be to see Bellerin leave the club? Let us know!
