Barcelona to return for Bellerin?

Bellerin wanted back at Barca

Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin is considered as the ideal replacement for Dani Alves at Barcelona this summer. The 20-year-old joined the Gunners from the famous La Masia academy back in 2011.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Catalan giants are lining up a bid for a new right-back with Brazil international Dani Alves being linked with a potential move to the Chinese Super League.

The report adds that Bellerin, who spent eight years in the club's academy, is regarded as the primary target for the European champions.

Bellerin has had a great spell in the Gunners first-team, and currently owns the right-back role ahead of Calum Chambers.

Arsenal are said to be reluctant to offload their star asset, but a concrete bid from Barcelona could tempt Bellerin to push a move through.
