Bellerin pledges future to Arsenal despite reported interest

Hector Bellerin has responded to all the speculation surrounding his future by pledging his future to Arsenal.

The full-back has emerged as one of the brightest young talents in the Premier League, and is rated as one of the best players in his position in England currently.

Bellerin has since been linked with a host of clubs, including both Manchester clubs, Chelsea, Barcelona and even Bayern Munich, but the Spain Under-21 international has played down such links.

The former Barcelona youth product is said to have been eyed as the long-term replacement for Dani Alves, who has just over a year remaining on his contract.

The young defender however is only interested in his current role in North London with Arsenal. He said: “I left Barca without looking back. I left focused on London and Arsenal and I am really happy there.

“I signed a new deal last year and there’s still a lot in front of me. It’s a club that’s forming a great team, with players like Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil.

“My future is there and I am happy where I am. A lot of things can happen in football, but I am at Arsenal, giving my all for the club.

“I am not thinking of going anywhere else.”

Bellerin brings an attractive attacking threat to our side, and is quickly becoming one of my favourite players in the squad.

It is a shame he appears to be overlooked for the Spain international squad this summer, but hopefully that will favour us for the upcoming season, although the experience could have been a boost to his progression.

No doubt every Arsenal fan out there will join me in being happy that Bellerin is as happy with us as we are him.

Do you think he should be ahead of Juanfran, Cesar Azpilicueta or Dani Carvajal? The rest could be more important in the short-term…

    1. Bad news?!
      I’m not sure about that… bad news maybe for you.

      I know I speak for the great majority of us when I say that it is indeed good news!

      I mean.. if our club at its manager isn’t that keen on improving the squad, we can atleast hope that the improving players (Bellerin) and star players (Ozil) we have will be generous enough to stick with us regardless of the fact they most likely will have to forgo the opportunity to win prestigious titles.

  1. Bellerin is getting better and better. Top player

    As much as I am disappointed with this season and blame Wenger for not signing more players last summer. We must at all costs do whatever we can to keep our core lot of existing players:
    Cech, Ozil, Alexis, Koscielny, Cazorla, Coquelin, Bellerin, Monreal, Gibbs, Gabriel, Chambers, Ramsey, Wilshere, Giroud (as a supersub, not main striker)

    We should also keep Campbell, Welbeck, Iwobi, Eleney as they have all earned my respect this season.

    Keep Mertsacker for one more season but get a top CB and RB

    Following players should leave for different reasons Sanogo, Arteta, Flamini, Debuchy

    Ox, Walcott have been very disappointing and not sure what to make of them. Will they improve? Should they be sold to get better players?

    1. Ramsey,wilshere are injury prone and inconsistent so if you want to move a step forward let one of them go and rely on the second as a sub
      About mert i think he is not getting better anymore and he has already lost his position to the moderate gabriel get a better player
      Walcott have to leave
      Ox needs to get loaned
      Leave campbell as a backup
      Giroud is pushing me to the limits i don’t want him
      I know I’m dreaming but we need three attackers
      2 wingers and a striker

      1. Your points seems logical. But here are a few things I’d change.

        I’d keep keep Ramsey, Wilshere, OX, and Campbell. But I’d surely move on Walcott (at 27/28 he’s got lesser upside potential than the others), and free up a useful 140K in wages.

        I’d reserve Ramsey, Ox and Campbell for the right wing (RW) position. Remember we’ve got Alexis and Welbeck who can also play there. That eliminates the need for bringing in 2 wingers. In attack, we only need to bring in a star player who’s proven to be reliable, dynamic and a consistent goal-scorer. He’d be the replacement for Walcott.

        In central midfield (CM), Flamini, Arteta and Rosicky are surely gone. I’d replace that trio with a potential heir to Santi. Maybe a Gundogan, Andre Gomes, or Xhaka. He’d take up Ramsey place in CM too.
        And until Wilshere overcomes his issues, we will rely on Wilshere as the sub CM player.

        That makes for 2 signings: 1 in attack, 1 in central midfield. And it is not beyond what you’d expect the club to do.

        If we’d love to go for more than that, then we may fix a few holes in Defense.

  2. Bellerine has improved and is now already regarded as the best right back in the premier League but I see that he is not a smart player he always tries to dribble the same way and he doesn’t use his speed to run behing defenders and lastly most of his passes are to the center backs he must have the courage to play it forward
    So if bellerine improved in this issues and used his brain on the field he may be the best right back in the world one day

  3. yeh, pledge? you either build the team in a postive direction or you loose the stars you have, if arsenal do not continue to invest where we need most, ie: CF, then you waste your time. van pu$$y, cesc, sagna, we went thru this too many times, we need to be the squad the studs want to play at, not leave…

  4. bellerin is a fantastic prospect, so is awobi and so is el nenny. Then there’s stars like cech/sanchez and ozil. The rest, the manager and the board are bang on avg.

  5. Well the funny part is that Manchester clubs still believe that they can have crack at Arsenal i mean look at them along with Chelsea who don’t have any self-respect and are now hoping for another player just to add pace. Barca and Bayern are clubs that loves to add quality even if they are not needed and another thing is that Arsenal have a bargaining chip “Arsenal don’t need extra cash” so a player exchange of equivalent or higher quality is what the team needs but Wenger is still a person who does not give the whole news and assurances to the own players so it can happen but not now.
