Hector Bellerin has requested that Arsenal terminate his £110,00-a-week contract at the club as he enters the final 12 months of his deal.

Bellerin has requested that his current deal is cancelled to allow him to make the move away from the Gunners on a free transfer.

The 27-year-old full back has found himself frozen out at the Emirates Stadium under Mikel Arteta, and spent last season on loan with LaLiga outfit Real Betis.

He made 32 appearances in all competitions as Los Verdiblancos won the Copa del Rey for just the third time in their history.

  Arsenal new boys shine | 'Saliba looks real deal' William Saliba, Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko show why Arsenal could be a much improved team this season.Arsenal's summer seems to have been an exercise in increasing pressure. A late-season slip that allowed their rivals to secure Champions League football ahead of them was followed by a documentary recording in detail how those events played out.

Reports suggest that Bellerin is interested in making the move back to Betis on a permanent deal, though the transfer hinges on whether he is allowed to leave without a fee.

Betis are currently undergoing significant financial problems which has hampered their ability to operate in the transfer window so far, with the club only able to register their new signings once Marc Bartra had joined Trabzonspor.

However, Betis are not the only La Liga club interested in potentially securing Bellerin's services. Barcelona are believed to also be interested in signing the 27-year-old, after failing to secure a deal for Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta earlier in the summer.

Bellerin began his footballing career at the Catalan club, but similar to Betis, a move to the Camp Nou would be contingent on Barca's ongoing financial difficulties being resolved before the end of the transfer window.
