For the Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern, it’s been quite a productive summer so far under Arsene Wenger.
With Sead Kolasinac already signed and Alexandre Lacazette seemingly on the way to the Emirates, our north London locals are dancing in delirious delight and entirely hopeful of a title challenge at long, long last.
Still, reports emanating out of Spain of late have concerned the Gooners propping up our bar. According to SPORT, Spanish international defender Hector Bellerin is ready to ask for a move away from the club this summer, in order to seal a dream return to Barcelona.
The 22-year-old started his career at the Camp Nou, before moving over to Arsenal and becoming a first-team regular, though has been strongly touted as a potential target for the Blaugrana and a long-term replacement for Dani Alves.
In a saga that could eerily resemble Cesc Fabregas’ own protracted return to the Catalan juggernauts in the summer of 2011, this report claims Bellerin is ready to ask Arsene Wenger to be allowed to return to his boyhood charges this summer.
Though holding off any interest from Barcelona would be rather difficult, our local Arsenal fans are desperately hoping they can keep one of the most talented full-backs in Europe.
