Arsenal adamant 22-year-old won’t be sold at any price – report
Arsenal won't consider the sale of Spain international Hector Bellerin to Barcelona in the summer, according to reports in the English media
Arsenal have told Barcelona that Hector Bellerin is not for sale at any price, according to reports in the English media.
The Independent is reporting that Arsenal have warned the La Liga giants that Bellerin won’t be sold in the summer transfer window.
Barcelona have been heavily linked with a move to re-sign the Spain international less than six seasons after Bellerin moved to Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger has helped to develop the 22-year-old into one of Europe’s most-promising right-backs over the past 24 months at the north London club.
Indeed, Bellerin was named in the PFA Premier League team of the year in 2015-16 but struggled to maintain his high level of performance towards the end of last season.
The Gunners have made one signing in the 2017 summer transfer window after Wenger completed a deal to sign Bosnian defender Sead Kolasinac on a free transfer from Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04.
Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season behind Liverpool in the race to secure a top-four spot.
