Barcelona plan summer raid for Arsenal star

Barca confident of Bellerin signing

Barcelona are set to step up their pursuit of Arsenal's Hector Bellerin during the summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old had been linked with a potential move to Camp Nou earlier last summer before he snubbed their advances to ink a fresh six-and-a-half-year deal with the north London giants.

Since then, Bellerin has not had the best of time in the right-back position, but nevertheless, Barca have been impressed by his attack-minded style of play.

According to Sport, the Catalan outfit are confident of prising away their former graduate in the summer with talks planned with the Gunners' direction of operations Dick Law next month.

Bellerin is currently valued at around £35m, and Barcelona feel they could lure him back to Spain given the uncertainty of the future of his beloved manager Arsene Wenger.

The youngster, who joined the Gunners from La Masia in 2011, has gone on to establish himself as an international with Spain since his breakthrough during the 2014-15 season.
