Arsenal and Wenger gives date to complete transfer deal

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Despite recent reports claiming Hector Bellerin will be returning to Barcelona soon, Arsenal have persisted he will not be leaving, not for any price in the summer.

Currently on international break playing for his country, Spain’s under-21 team ahead of this month European Championships, it is quite obvious that the La Liga giants are trying to unsettle Bellerin.

Along with this, they have placed different options before Arsenal in their determination to sign the 27-year-old, highlighting how desperate they are in their attempts to sign the him in the summer.

Having just penned a contract extension valid till 2023, Bellerin has been questioned severally by the press about the supposed move and whether he would return to his former club.

Although it is too early to make any conclusion given the length some journalist are willing to got to get answer from him, Bellerin seem less adamant about his long-term future at the Emirates now than he was last year.

That’s an observation from the interview published with Spanish newspaper Sport, where he said “you never know what can happen” whilst revealing his family have returned to Barcelona and admitting he was flattered by their interest.

Wenger himself has been assertive when stressing the fact that Bellerín will remain, though the situation has little difference to the Cesc Fabregas situation back in 2011 before he returned to Spain.

Whether the talented full-back will leave at some stage in a few years’ time, remains a mystery.
