By all accounts it appears that the Arsenal and Spain international star Hector Bellerin is pretty happy with the Gunners and is not pushing for a move away from the club, despite the many Arsenal transfer rumours suggesting that his excellent form over the last two seasons has drawn the attention of his boyhood club FC Barcelona.
The right back was born in Barcelona and spent eight years in the youth system with the current La Liga champions and that, along with the recent record the Catalan club has of taking our players and the news that their long serving Brazilian international Dani Alves is leaving, it is hardly surprising that Arsenal fans were worried that Bellerin might end up leaving us.
He still might, of course, but it looks very much like it will not be happening this summer at least, especially now that The Telegraph is reporting that Barcelona have turned their transfer sights on the Chelsea and Spain defender Cesar Azpilicueta instead.
The 26-year old normally plays on the left for Chelsea but his primary position was always on the right and that could help Barca to get him, as could the fact that it is Bellerin that has apparently become Spain’s first choice with the Real Madrid star Carvajal being injured.
Barca’s left back Jordi Alba is the regular starter for Spain and so Azpilicueta looks like he will be watching Euro 2016 from the bench. Hopefully this will make him push for the transfer to Barcelona that would ensure that Arsenal will definitely hold on to our brilliant young Spaniard.
