Wantaway Arsenal star Hector Bellerin set to complete transfer to boyhood club Real Betis
ARSENAL star Hector Bellerin is reportedly set to complete a transfer deadline day move to Real Betis.
The defender, 26, has been heavily linked with an exit throughout the summer.
And after failing to feature in any of Arsenal's opening three games, it appeared the writing was on the wall.
Inter Milan were believed to be very keen on signing the right-back as a replacement for Achraf Hakimi, who joined Paris Saint-Germain, but the Serie A side instead brought in Denzel Dumfries.
Instead, Real Betis are set to land Bellerin, according to football.london reporter Chris Wheatley.
Betis are Bellerin's boyhood club and the connection to the LaLiga outfit runs in his family.
Bellerin has said previously: "My first shirt was Betis because my father was a fan of the Verdiblanco team. It was difficult for me to support another club."
The Spaniard could also find it difficult to leave the Emirates after spending ten years in North London.

Bellerin arrived at Arsenal from Barcelona at 16 and has seen a lot of change at the club, from Arsene Wenger to Mikel Arteta.
He has won the FA Cup on three occasions with Arsenal and also finished as a runner-up in the League Cup and Europa League in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
The right-back has won three trophies with Arsenal and made 239 appearances for the club.
Willian is also set to leave, which could open up an opportunity for some last-minute signings at Arsenal.
