Atletico Madrid have joined Real Betis in their interest for Arsenal fullback Hector Bellerin.

Goal says the right-back, 27, who is willing to take a significant salary cut in order to leave Arsenal and return to Real Betis this summer has just one year left on his contract.

And it is believed that Betis could struggle to turn Bellerin’s temporary stay into a permanent switch due to financial reasons.

But Arsenal are refusing to release him to allow him to join Betis on a free transfer as they hold out for a fee.

And this has seen Atletico look to pip Manuel Pellegrini’s side to his signature, with Bellerin on Diego Simeone’s radar.

Atletico were keen to sign the ex-Watford loanee last year but failed to secure his services, and they appear to have retained their interest.
