Bellerin agents in Arsenal talks over contract release

Hector Bellerin is pushing Arsenal to release him from his contract.

The Sun says the 27 year-old spent last season on-loan at Real Betis and has 12 months remaining on his £110,000-a-week deal.

He is keen to return to Real Betis after winning the Copa del Rey with his boyhood club last season.

And former club Barcelona are also monitoring his situation after failing to secure a deal with Chelsea for right-back Cesar Azpilicueta.

But both Spanish clubs are struggling to balance their books and insist they cannot afford to pay a fee for Bellerin.

So now his representatives are in talks with Arsenal in a bid to break the deadlock.

And they are hoping that the prospect of wiping £5.7million off their annual wage bill will be enough to convince the club to let him go.
