Hector Bellerin injured

Atletico Madrid to offer Vitolo in deal for Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin – Telegraph

Atletico try to tempt Arsenal into selling Bellerin

Atletico Madrid are reportedly prepared to include Spanish winger Vitolo in any deal to sign Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin.

Atletico have been linked with several moves during the current transfer window.

Joao Felix is reportedly close to a move which could cost a total of £107 million.

The Spanish club have also already signed Marcos Llorente.

Now, they’re being linked with a move for Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin.

Vitolo to the Emirates?

According to the Telegraph, Atletico Madrid are interested in signing the right-back, and are willing to include Vitolo in any deal.

Vitolo played under Unai Emery during the pair’s time at Sevilla, where they won three Europa League trophies.

According to the report, ‘despite the fact he is still recovering from a knee injury, Bellerin has emerged as one of Atletico’s summer targets, with manager Diego Simeone keen to bolster his defence with a new right-back.’

The Arsenal full-back has been out with an injury since January and it’s been suggested that he won’t be ready for the start of next season.

However, that hasn’t stopped Atletico from looking to sign him.

The Telegraph’s report continues by explaining that ‘the Gunners are unlikely to have dropped their £50million valuation of Bellerin this summer and may well not want to sell him at all, but Atletico are prepared to test the water by offering Emery the chance to link up with Vitolo again.’

Vitolo scored 28 goals and assisted 44 during his time at Sevilla, and was particularly impressive under Emery.
