Unai Emery makes key decision on Hector Bellerin

Bellerin deemed 'untouchable' under Emery

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has reportedly included Hector Bellerin on a list of players who are deemed 'untouchable' at the north London club.

The Spain international's future has been thrown into uncertainty on a number of occasions over the past 24 months but according to The Mirror, Bellerin is one of the players who is indispensable to the club.

Aside from Bellerin, Granit Xhaka, Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan are also regarded as 'untouchable', as per Emery.

Meanwhile, Emery is also said to be keen on prolonging the stay of midfielder Aaron Ramsey and talks are still ongoing regarding a probable extension beyond next season.

Should the Welshman decline the deal, he could head through the Emirates exit door alongside Jack Wilshere, who has failed to agree on a new contract to date.

Wilshere has just a couple of weeks remaining on his Gunners deal but so far, he has not managed to sort out an extension with his current contract demands.
