Barcelona planning to make £35m move for Bellerin

Barcelona are planning to make a £35m move for Arsenal right-back, Hector Bellerin, in the summer.

The Catalans side were strongly linked with a move for their former defender last summer, but Bellerin ultimately signed a new six-and-a-half-year contract with his Premier League club.

According to the report, the player is said to be considering a return to Spain, and Barcelona wants him to replace Brazilian Dani Alves who left the club last summer. But since Alves left they have tried two different players in that position - Sergio Roberto and Alex Vidal - who have struggled.

Bellerin has been on Barca’s radar since leaving them for the Gunners in 2011, and a club chief, Robert Fernandez, is thought to have met the 25-year-old's representatives in September to declare their interest.

Since breaking through Arsenal's academy in 2013, Bellerin has made 68 appearances for the Gunners scoring three goals in all competition. He was part of Spanish national team squad at Euro 2016.
