Real Betis president Angel Haro has confirmed that Hector Bellerin will return to Arsenal before the 2022/23 season.
The full-back is currently on loan at the Spanish club, having played 32 games this season.
He broke down in tears after his last home game against Granada at the Benito Villamarin stadium last weekend.
Speaking on Wednesday, Harrow refused to rule out signing the Spaniard on a permanent deal next season.
“Hector is a great player and a very good person. He was a loan we got from Arsenal, now he’s back at Arsenal, we’ll see from then on.
“It is true that he was immersed in everything about Betis because, in addition, his parents are Betis fans. Hopefully we will meet again.”
Bellerin revealed, in an interview in January, that he was enjoying his time at his childhood club, which his entire family supports.
“All my family supported Bettis,” he said, and everyone followed them home, and my father and I were staunch supporters. There’s energy on the pitch that’s hard to describe, it’s just amazing
“It’s great to be able to share the great atmosphere with the fans. The fans here have a lot of respect for the players, they love football and the club,”
He will leave the Spanish club after helping him win the King’s Cup, reach the knockout stages of the European League, and finish well in the La Liga standings.
