Barcelona are still interested in signing Hector Bellerin, according to reports in Spain.
The defender has been one of our standout performers in the last few seasons and a lot of clubs are reportedly interested in signing him as a result.
Two clubs constantly linked with the defender are Manchester City and Barcelona. While it is all over the news that the former will not relent their efforts on signing the defender, it was thought that the later had cooled their interest due to the emergence of Sergi Roberto. However, that is not the case as Spanish Publication Marca via The Daily Star are claiming Bellerin is one of the five defenders on Barcelona’s wish list.
The report claims Luis Enrique is in search of a new right back to replace Alex Vidal and Bellerin features high on his wish list.
Bellerin has become a key player at the Emirates featuring in all but one of our league games last season. Wenger is expected to resist all approaches for the 21 year old and an improved deal for the defender is believed to be in the offing.
Reports claim talks to extend the player’s contract will commence after the current international break and that is expected to put an end to Bacelona’s as well as City’s interests.
The last thing we fans want to see is to lose our best players to other clubs and we expect Wenger to reject all offers for the defender next summer whether he signs a new contract or not.
