According to Kevin Campbell, Inter Milan must “stump up the money” if they want to sign Hector Bellerin from Arsenal this summer.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Arsenal and Everton striker claimed Arsenal “hold all of the cards” in negotiations for the 26-year-old defender.
Inter CEO Marotta to Sky Sport: “Hector Bellerin is a player we’re following… but I can’t say more. Alex Telles? I can’t exclude this possibility but we’re making our plans and we’ll see. We’re now planning to keep our best players after selling Hakimi”. 🔵 #Inter #AFC #MUFC

Bellerin’s contract with the Emirates expires in two years. When asked about Bellerin’s future by Football Insider’s Dylan Childs, Campbell said:
“Arsenal can play hard ball because they know Inter have got the Hakimi money. They need a wing-back.
“Inter Milan are league champions and the system they play would suit Bellerin so I’m sure he’s interested.
“But the price has to be right. Arsenal hold all of the cards here and if Inter want Bellerin, then stump up the money.
“There will be some wiggle room because all clubs are trying to balance their books after the Covid situation but the price has to be right.”
