The Arsenal fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are persistently getting at our staff for news over the future of the star men at The Emirates, desperately hoping they’ll be staying put this summer.
Unfortunately for our punters, there is bad news at the bar today with reports from Mundo Deportivo claiming that right-back Hector Bellerin is ‘going crazy’ over a potential move back to Barcelona.
The Spanish international joined the Gunners from the Catalan giants in 2011 and has developed into one of the best young players in his position in Europe.
However, as is the case with many of their young players who leave to grow their game, Barca want him back. The Arsenal fans here in the Tavern are dreading the prospect of seeing another top talent return to the Nou Camp, as Cesc Fabregas did at the end of his time in north London.
There is a shred of hope for them as the report also claims that if the Spanish side don’t finalise a deal for the 22-year-old within ten days they’ll be moving on to new targets.
Gunners fans, we want to hear from you! Do you think Wenger will be able to hold on to Bellerin? Let us know in the comments…
