The Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin and his Spanish under 21 teammates got off to a cracking start at the European championships at the weekend, putting five past Macedonia without reply on Saturday and setting a marker with a stylish, classy and effective performance all over the pitch.
The stand out player was not Bellerin, though, but the Real Madrid forward Marco Asensio who opened the scoring with an impressively overhead finish and then completed his hat-trick in the second half. We can only hope that Arsene Wenger has sent our full back off to Poland with the instructions to have a word with the exciting young prospect.
According to a report in the Daily Star the 21-year old is ready to ask for a transfer away from the Santiago if Zinedine Zidane brings in any players likely to stand in the way of more first team playing time. They are apparently going to sell James Rodriguez and Alvaro Morata this summer but probably not to open the door for Asensio but to finance a move for new players.
Arsenal are reported to be one of a number of clubs keeping an eye on the situation and after the way Wenger gave Bellerin a chance to shine at a young age with Arsenal I think he could be the perfect person to convince the striker that the Gunners could be the club to join. Keep an eye on this one Gooners.
