Key Gunner open to return to Spain if Wenger leaves


Reports in Spain suggest Hector Bellerin is open to a return to Barcelona this summer, if Arsene Wenger leaves Arsenal.

The Spanish right-back has been on Barcelona’s radar in recent months after seeing Dani Alves leave for Juventus last summer, and has once again been linked with a return to his former club.

It was reported earlier in the week that Barcelona are set to reignite their interest in Bellerin at the end of the season, and now Mundo Deportivo say money would be no object for the La Liga club to land the full-back.

Despite interest from Barca and Manchester City last summer, Bellerin signed a new six-and-a-half-year deal with Arsenal back in November, citing Wenger’s influence as one of the reasons for committing his future to the club.

However, The Guardian now claim that Bellerin would seriously consider leaving Arsenal should Wenger do so at the end of the season.

Mesut Ozil has stated his future at the club depends on what Wenger decides, and it seems Bellerin has chosen the same path.
