Bellerin Keen to Join Barcelona – says Suarez
Bellerin keen to join Barcelona but feels tied to Arsenal, says Suarez
Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin is keen on ditching the Premier League in favour of a return to Barcelona, his Spain Under-21 team-mate Denis Suarez has suggested.
The Catalan club are determined to add a right-back to the squad having failed to replace Dani Alves following the Brazilian’s move to Juventus last year, with Bellerin their main target.
After three full seasons with the first team, however, reports linking him with a return to Camp Nou have intensified and Arsenal’s failure to qualify for the Champions League next season is reported to be the deciding factor.
With Arsene Wenger rebuilding his squad ahead of the 2017-18 Premier League campaign, Bellerin is rumoured to have the option to leave for La Liga, and midfielder Suarez believes his international colleague is keen on a move.
“I have spoken to him [Bellerin] and from one side he wants to join Barca, but from the other he feels very attached to Arsenal. It is a hard situation and I am nobody to be speaking about this, but I wish he can come.”
