Barcelona will lodge a summer bid to sign former graduate Hector Bellerin in the summer. The Spain international has evolved into a regular at Arsenal over the years, lifting the FA Cup in two of the last three seasons.

Bellerin, 22, has been constantly associated with a return to Camp Nou where he spent early years in the La Masia academy.

According to The Star, the Catalan giants are prepared to spend big on the right-back this summer after Ernesto Valverde gave the green light to pursue the move.

Bellerin still has six more years left on his present Emirates deal, but Barcelona are confident that a fee of around £44m could be sufficient to persuade the Gunners into a sale.

The highly-rated full-back has recently insisted that he would like to stay for the long-term under the current manager, but there could yet be a twist in the tale with Barca prepared to offer Arda Turan in exchange.

Turan has personally agreed terms over a Emirates switch, and it is left for both parties to come to a conclusion in terms of the transfer price.
