There is a bit of good news for Arsenal in the transfer market already this summer as it looks like Arsenal full back, Hector Bellerin could be staying at The Emirates beyond this summer according to a reputable journalist, Guillem Balague.
The Spanish football ‘expert’, Guillem Balague is reporting that Bellerin will not be joining Barcelona, his boyhood club despite rumours linking him once again with a move to Spain. Barcelona have long been on the hunt for Bellerin but Balague said in a recent Sky Sports report that:
“Hector Bellerin is too expensive, they (Barcelona) want a left-back and also a right-back but the Arsenal star is too expensive. The problem with Barcelona, and considering the way that they are not renewing the contract of Sergio Busquets as quickly as the player would like, is the wage bill is too high.”
It was further reported that Barca are looking likely to sign Antoine Griezmann who will command a ridiculous transfer fee, meaning they are unlikely to be looking at other expensive options this summer.
Arsenal are said to be looking at adding new players to the squad and one of the names that is reportedly closing in on a deal is Jean Michael Seri from Nice, who’s agent is said to have already been speaking with the Arsenal management team ahead of a new Manager being announced.
If Bellerin stays, Seri and Leno join the club this summer, it will have been a good start to transfers this season, and with a new Manager to be unveiled any day, it looks like things are looking up at The Emirates after a nightmare season.
