Hector Bellerin: Arsenal speculation

Hector Bellerin insists he is happy at Arsenal after flat batting reports linking him with a return to Barcelona.

The Gunners right-back has remained consistent throughout a gloomy second half of the season for Arsenal, who have seen their Premier League title chances slip away and found themselves dumped out of the Champions League and FA Cup in the past month.

And Bellerin’s impressive performances have sparked suggestions that he could leave the Emirates Stadium this summer, with Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claiming they will try to buy back the 21-year-old if Dani Alves moves to China.

The report also claims the player is wanted by Manchester United, Manchester City, Bayern Munich and PSG.

However, Bellerin has insisted that he is not thinking about leaving north London.

He told Goal: “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.

“After last season and having started to play with the first team at Arsenal, my objective this year was to play as much as possible. And I have to give my thanks to the manager because he’s given me a lot of minutes, allowing me to complete my objective.

“It’s true that on a club level things aren’t going as we wanted and that’s complicated things, but personally I am really happy with how things are going. I’m completing my objectives and now I have to aspire to more and want more – that’s how things progress.”
