INTER MILAN chief Beppe Marotta has confirmed the Italians ARE watching Hector Bellerin.
The Arsenal right-back, 26, has been tipped to leave the Emirates this summer after ten years of service.
Reports claim Inter are leading the race for Bellerin after selling Achraf Hakimi to Paris Saint-Germain.
And Marotta has now confirmed the Serie A champions have Bellerin in their sights.
He told Sky Sports Italy: “Bellerin is a player we are following, but I can’t say any more.”
Marotta also revealed Inter are interested in re-signing Manchester United left-back Alex Telles.
He added: “Telles? I can’t exclude this possibility but we’re making plans and we’ll see.”
Should Arsenal decide to cash in on Bellerin, it’s reckoned they would demand £15million for their longest-serving player and vice-captain.
And Ian McGarry says Arsenal are ready to cash in as they look to strengthen other areas of their squad.
He told the Transfer Window Podcast: “It’s our information that Bellerin and his representatives are in talks with at least three different clubs with regards to a transfer this summer.

“We’ve also been told by very senior sources at Arsenal that Bellerin is one of the players they believe they can actually cash in on in terms of their financial difficulties and their ability to purchase new players.”
As for Telles, reports claim Man United have no intention of letting him go one year after his move from Porto.
That’s despite added interest from their former boss Jose Mourinho, who wants to loan Telles to Roma as a replacement for the injured Leonardo Spinazzola.
