Hector Bellerin news

Arsenal face battle to keep hold of Bellerin

Manchester City and Bayern Munich have joined Barcelona in the race to secure the signature of highly-rated Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin. The 21-year-old has been in good form for the Gunners over the past year, and this has attracted interest from top European clubs.

Bellerin has owned the right-back role at the Emirates this term displacing the likes of Calum Chambers and out on loan Mathieu Debuchy.

The Catalan giants have been recently linked with a potential swoop for their former graduate, but according to The Sun, the likes of City and Bayern are likely to offer stiff competition in the player's pursuit.

However, it is yet to be known whether the Gunners would consider the player's sale, given their good financial position in recent seasons.

Bellerin joined the Gunners alongside Jon Toral from the 'La Masia' academy in 2011.
