‘Show some ambition’ – Arsenal fans on Twitter discuss multi-million pound transfer rumour

Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have been responding to transfer rumours surrounding their young, Spanish right-back, Hector Bellerin. A story in the Daily Mail has detailed how Barcelona and Manchester City could both come calling for the defender in the summer with the £50 million price tag not deterring the European giants.

Bellerin has failed to kick on this season, like a number of Arsenal players, as the club has slumped to new lows during the current campaign. Arsene Wenger’s side sits 33 points away from 1st placed Manchester City and 12 points off of the top 4. Although a saving grace for Wenger could be the Europa League, as winning Europe’s second-tier tournament means guaranteed entry to the Champions League the following year.

Hector Bellerin, who turns 23 next week, has missed Arsenal’s last two games against Watford and AC Milan, games in which the Gunners kept back-to-back clean sheets for the first time since before Christmas. Given the apparent tightening up of Arsenal’s backline in the last two fixtures, Wenger will be asking questions over whether Bellerin warrants a place back in his starting line-up. However, with the apparent interest of City and Barca, and the fast-approaching World Cup in summer, Bellerin will want to get back and playing as soon as possible.

Taking all of that into account, here’s our resident Gunners’ verdict on Bellerin:
