Hector Bellerin is willing to give up salary for the final year of his contract Arsenal so he can push through a permanent move to Real Betis.
The 27-year-old was loaned to the Spanish side last season after falling out of favor at the Emirates and opting for a fresh start.
At Seville, he made 23 La Liga appearances and was part of the Betis side that won the Copa del Rey.
The defender is set to return to the Gunners this summer but according to Estadio Deportivo he would rather stay in Spain.
The report went on to say Arsenal want a £8m-plus fee for Bellerin but the Spaniard would tear up his £100,000-a-week contract to secure a move.
In recent years, the north London club have struck similar deals, most notably with Mesut Özil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Calum Chambers.
Getting Bellerin’s salary off the club’s books could please Mikel Arteta as his squad is already well-stocked at right-back in the form of Cedric Soares and Takehiro Tomiyasu.
However, Arteta has warned he will have to manage the club’s resources this summer despite being linked with the likes of Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus and Leicester’s Youri Tielemans.
He said: “We will have certain resources, not unlimited resources, some resources.
“And with our resources we have to play and do what we have to do in the best possible way.
“We don’t know what the rest of the resources will be, which I think will be a challenge as it’s not a top 3 or top 4 league now.
“Now there are eight or ten top teams involved in it. So we have to find a way to repeat what we did last summer.”
