Goonersden brings you news from top football news sites from the likes of ESPN, SkySport, Daily Mail, Daily Star and Metro… We also Analyse football, player, transfer and predict Arsenal starting line-up.
Hector Bellerin is keen on a return to the Camp Nou, according to reports.
The defender spent the early part of his formative years at the Spanish club before joining us at the age of 16. He has developed into a quality player under the tutelage of the coaches at Arsenal and is now attracting interest from a number of top clubs including Barcelona.
The Spanish giants tried to resign the defender in the summer transfer window but were knocked back as we had no intention to sell.
We have been made to believe that Luis Enrique’s men are keen on the defender and won’t give up until they lure him back to the Camp Nou but Mundo Deportivo are now claiming it is Bellerin who is desperate for a return back to Barcelona and his transfer fee that is believed to be in the region of £40m is putting off the Spanish club.
The report is a bit ridiculous as it was only last week that a different report claimed the defender has set his sight on a move to Manchester City in order to work with Pep Guardiola again.
This doesn’t make sense and stinks of poor journalism as there is no way a player will be interested in joining two different clubs at the same time. Again, it was just this summer that the defender publicly revealed he is happy in North London and wants to stay here for a long time.
Goal recently revealed that the player is set to be rewarded with a new deal and we can’t wait for that to happen as it will put an end to all these speculations about his future.
