Barca target confirms desire to play for Arsenal

Barcelona target Hector Bellerin has made it clear that he wants to remain at the Emirates stadium despite recent speculation.

The Spaniard has been strongly linked with a move back to his old club ever since he broke into the Arsenal first team.

Indeed there have been reports suggesting that Bellerin could complete a transfer switch to the Camp Nou worth over £50 million this summer.

However, the 22-year-old has reiterated his desire to stay at the club he joined in 2011.

“I signed my contract for a reason. I signed it because I wanted to be here. I wouldn’t have done it otherwise,” Bellerin said

“Arsenal is the club that gave me the chance to be a professional and since the first time I met with the boss he’s always said if I progressed the right way I could be an Arsenal player for a long time.

“I’ve been here nearly six years and I love London. I’m still discovering the city.

“The other day, I was out in the car in east London thinking I’d never been there before. That’s what I like about the city.”
