Barcelona are set to retain their interest in Arsenal's Hector Bellerin when the transfer window reopens in the summer.



The 21-year-old joined the Gunners from the La Masia academy in the summer of 2011 and has since developed into a top-class right-back.

Bellerin inked a fresh six-year contract at the Emirates earlier in the season, but his future still remains uncertain with Arsene Wenger due to leave the club this summer.

The Spaniard had been promised that Wenger would extend terms beyond the current campaign, but this looks improbable with the Frenchman being the subject of immense criticism from the fans.

According to The Express, the Catalan giants will have scouts watching Bellerin during the Gunners' Champions League clash against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.

The Gunners hold an improbable task of recovering from a 5-1 deficit, but the performance of Bellerin will be the key focus for the Spanish champions.

Barcelona have failed to recruit a specialist right-back to their ranks since Dani Alves departed for Juventus on a free transfer last summer.
