The former Real Madrid and Deportivo La Coruna fullback had been linked with a free transfer to AC Milan last summer, but his switch to the San Siro collapsed, allowing West Ham to seal the two times Champions League winner.
According to reports in Spain, Arbeloa could leave West Ham on a six-month loan deal with the Premier League club that are reportedly willing to pay for the player’s wages to facilitate his exit from the club after a disappointing spell in England. Espanyol are interested in taking the player back to LaLiga.
Arbeloa’s West Ham contract expires in June 2017, therefore the player will be free to join any other club for free at the end of the season.
