Arsenal transfer news: Gunners star open to returning to La Liga giants if Arsene Wenger leaves at the end of the season

Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin is open to returning to former side Barcelona if Arsene Wenger leaves the club, report the Guardian.

The Gunners poached Bellerin from the illustrious La Masia academy, and it has proved to be somewhat of a masterstroke.

Since breaking into Wenger’s starting eleven, Bellerin has established himself as a cornerstone in Arsenal’s side and is evolving into one of the most accomplished full-backs in the Premier League.

His good performances in North London appear to have recaptured the attention of his former employers. The Guardian cite Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, who report that Barcelona’s pursuit of Bellerin is underway.

Since Dani Alves’ departure, there has been an evident need for reinforcements in that position for the Catalan giants – especially after Aleix Vidal sustained a season-ending injury.

Luis Enrique will be encouraged by this report from the Guardian, which states that if Wenger leaves Arsenal at the end of his contract in the summer, Bellerin would be open to returning to Barcelona.
