hector-bellerin-arsenalArsenal may be forced to fend off interest from Barcelona for Hector Bellerin, according to reports.

Recent reports have suggested the Spanish right-back is in talks over a two-year contract extension.

Meanwhile, Barcelona are thought to be considering Chelsea’s Cesar Azpilicueta as a potential target.

The Catalan giants are in the market for a new full-back after Juventus sealed a deal for Dani Alves yesterday.

Barca sporting director Robert Fernandez had suggested earlier this month that no formal approach had been made for Bellerin.

He said: “I haven’t raised [Bellerin] at this point.

“He’s a fantastic player who we know because he grew up here but at this time I’m not raising anything in this regard.

“Aleix Vidal was signed [last summer] thinking Alves could go. We trust in him.

“He was having a fantastic season at Sevilla and we have the emergence of Sergi Roberto. Douglas? I want him to play.”

The Gunners finished runners-up to Barclays Premier League champions to Leicester last term.

Arsene Wenger has already signed Granit Xhaka for £30million this summer.
