Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin has said that he is flattered at recent talk linking him with a call up to the Spanish national team, according to the Daily Express.
The 20-year-old seems to go from strength to strength this year as he continues to cement himself as a key member of Arsene Wenger’s squad this year.
Following an injury to Mathieu Debuchy in the 2014/15 season, Bellerin stepped in to make 20 appearances, helping the side retain the FA Cup in the process, and has kept his spot ahead of the Frenchman this term.
And his impressive form for the Premier League giants has led to talk of a call up to the Spanish national side for the first time, having already established himself with the under-21s.
Bellerin has admitted that he is flattered by the speculation, though insists he is focussing on his form for Arsenal above anything else.
“There is a high level in national team and I’m happy for them,” Bellerin said. “The most important thing is that Spain have a good team no matter who plays.
“It is always nice to see your name spoken but the important thing is that the national team does well.
“But having good players for every position is important because there are always injuries, drops of form.
“I’m working for my club, I try to do my best here and then the things come when you do a good job.
“My target is to help the club have a good season and whatever comes later will come.”
