Arsenal transfer news: Wenger willing to double star full-back’s wages to prevent Barcelona move

Arsenal star Hector Bellerin has been in impressive form this season and has attracted interest from Manchester City and Barcelona in the process according to the Sun.

Per the source, Wenger hopes to keep Bellerin at the club by offering him a new bumper deal which will see his wages double if he remains at the Emirates.

The North London based outfit have no intention of selling Bellerin but he currently earns £50,000 per-week – far less than other key players in the team.

Wenger is reported to be prepared to offer Bellerin a deal worth £96,000 a-week to ward off Barcelona and City .

Bellerin does still have another three-years remaining on his current deal so Arsenal are under no pressure to sell and the former Barcelona youth player has claimed he has no desire to leave the club.

The 21-year-old rose through the ranks of the La Masia academy before signing for Arsenal as a 16-year-old.
