Cazorla : Arsenal must keep hold of Hector Bellerin

Bellerin must stay at all costs - Cazorla

Spain international Santi Cazorla feels Arsenal must keep hold of Hector Bellerin amid the constant speculation over his future. Barcelona and Manchester City are monitoring the player's progress.

Bellerin, 21, has owned the right-back role at the Emirates in recent seasons, and this has urged the Gunners to hold talks over a contract extension.

While being questioned on Bellerin's situation, Cazorla insisted that the player has a huge role to play in the Gunners' success, and it would be a mistake to let him go to one of Barcelona or Manchester City.

Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez has recently hinted that they would welcome back the Spaniard having previously seen his development in the La Masia academy.

Meanwhile, City boss Pep Guardiola has always admired the Spain international, and believes the right-back could be ideal for his plans next season.

Bellerin has turned out 82 times for Arsenal in his young career.
