Chelsea FC are keen on a move to sign Hector Bellerin from Arsenal this summer, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet Sport, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Blues are ready to rival the likes of Manchester United and FC Barcelona for the talented Arsenal full-back’s signature.

The same report says that Bellerin is “expected” to leave Arsenal this summer, despite having committed to a new long-term contract at the club back in the autumn of 2016.

According to the same story, Arsenal are planning to cash in on a number of players this summer to give their new manager funds to spend in the transfer window.

Now, the same article says that Chelsea FC have joined the race for the 23-year-old this summer as they look to poach one of their London rivals’ top players.

Chelsea FC are likely to be very busy in the summer transfer window as they look to build on a disappointing campaign this term.

The Blues are currently in fifth place in the Premier League table and will miss out on a place in next season’s Champions League unless they are able to break back into the top four before the campaign is over.
