Arseblog News understands that Hector Bellerin has put pen to paper on a new Arsenal deal.
The exciting Spaniard has been one of the team’s most consistent players, and his rise to one of the top performers in the Premier League has seen the club move to tie him down on new and improved terms.
Although he still had three years left on a deal signed in 2015, the new deal is a reward for his growing stature, and to further ward off interest from the likes of Barcelona and Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola did make an approach to Arsenal during the summer but was told in no uncertain terms that Bellerin was not for sale.
The 21 year old spoke last week about his future, saying, “I’m not in a rush to extend the contract. I’m happy. I’m comfortable. I want to be here a long time.”
However, our information is that the deal is agreed and signed, we just await official confirmation.
So, one down. Just the small matter of a brilliant German and an energetic Chilean to sort out now.
