Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern are pleased to see their side making the right sort of moves in the Transfer Market, as it’s stated one player is set to have his future tied down.
Spanish outlet Sport state Arsenal have begun discussions with Hector Bellerin regarding an extension to his deal, with the young Spanish international attracting heavy interest from boyhood club Barcelona.
The 20-year-old has grown to become Arsenal’s most crucial defender during the past 18 months, ousting experienced Mathieu Debuchy from the squad completely, and he’s rated very highly by the north London giants.
However, having snatched Bellerin from Barcelona’s youth ranks in similar circumstances to what occured a decade ago when Cesc Fabregas moved to Highbury, Arsenal are keen to ensure Bellerin doesn’t follow his compatriots footsteps and return to the Camp Nou.
Barcelona are known to be admirers in the young defender, especially with Dani Alves on his way out, but our landlord believes it would be a few years until any move materialises.
Arsenal fans, how crucial is this deal to your future? Let us know in the comments below!
