Spanish giants continue to be keen on signing Arsenal man

Atletico de Madrid has been linked with a move for Arsenal full-back, Hector Bellerin this summer.

Bellerin has been at the Emirates since 2011 when he joined the Gunners from Barcelona as a 16-year-old.

He has matured into one of the finest right-backs in Europe, but the time may have come for him to try a new club.

The full-back remains an important member of Mikel Arteta’s squad. However, he isn’t untouchable.

The Gunners are rebuilding their squad and he is one player they will cash in on if a good enough offer arrives.

Marca says he could head back to Spain where Atleti is serious about signing him.

The La Liga champions expect one of Kieran Trippier or Sime Vrsaljko to leave them this summer and they see Bellerin as the perfect replacement.

Trippier has been linked with a return to England where Arsenal and Manchester United want him.

The Gunners have been linked with a move for the likes of Tariq Lamptey and Zeki Çelik as well.

If he leaves, they will still have Calum Chambers and Cedric Soares as options for that position. However, they will likely sign a new right-back to add quality to that area of their squad.

    Excuse me but did I actually read the hilarious line “he has matured into one of the finest right backs inEurope!” Incredible nonsense!

    I’d call him among the very worst full backs in the entire Prem and certainly the worst regular long term Arsenal full back, left or right, in many decades past!
    I simply refuse to believe that a top club like Athletico could ever be so stupid as to beinterested in Bellerin, the non defending so called “defender”!

      Rubbish Hector Bellerin, has been one of our best players, and is just getting back to top form, since that injury.

      Hope he stays

      Oh Jon you beat me to it with the line in “-“. I literally laughed my socks off and now sitting here in bare feet.

        I disagree completely that he’s one of the worst FB in the PL. He was one of our best players and is attractive to other teams

  2. Declan says:

    He’s not one of the worst and in fact I like hi, but to call him one of the finest right backs in Europe is laughable. We would certainly be asking double the £25 million we want if he was.

    I’d agree with JF and Declan
    A huge plus is that he has to my knowledge behaved in a professional manner No complaints
