If you believe the Arsenal transfer rumours that were coming out of Spain a couple of days ago concerning our fleet footed right back Hector Bellerin, the club and Arsene Wenger have just eight more days to hold out under the transfer pressure from his former and boyhood club FA Barcelona.
The news from the Catalan papers and reported by Metro was that the new Barca boss Ernesto Valverde wanted to have this summer signing wrapped up before the start of their pre-season training schedule and will turn his attention to other possible players if we do not agree to sell.
So far Wenger and the board have remained steadfast and this has surprised the Spaniards apparently, because the Gunners have not always been so firm in the past, but there are still eight days to go and Barca may well come back with a massive bid.
We also have the possibility, in another report by Metro today, that the 22-year old who is currently on international duty and has helped the Spain under 21 team into the Euro finals, could try to force the hand of his manager, as did Cesc Fabregas when he wanted to head back to the Nou Camp.
Bellerin does not strike me as that sort and has often spoke about owing Wenger but will Arsenal still have him on the books when the new season begins I wonder?
