Arsene Wenger sees Hector Bellerin's long term future at Arsenal


Many Arsenal players have come through the doors at London Colney and then eventually ended up in the handsome city of Barcelona; Marc Overmars, Thierry Henry and Cesc Fabregas to name a few, but after the latter re-joined the club before moving to Chelsea, Wenger will be hoping that the same doesn't happen with Bellerin and he's tempted away from the club. Arsene Wenger has firmly stated that the Spaniard is not for sale and is willing to give the 21-year-old a pay rise to retain his services.

Arsenal have no fresh injury worries, but Arsene Wenger will, again, have to do without Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud.

The news could come as a blow to Manchester City and Barcelona, who are both understood to be eyeing a move for Bellerin.

Because when a fan claimed - not too unsurprisingly - that Lee Dixon should be in the side ahead of the Cameroon right-back Lauren, Dixon himself shot the Champions League down. A threat offensively as well, his bombing runs on the right-hand side contribute to a major part of Arsenal's attacks.

"He has almost three years to go and we always try get the players to the level where we think they deserve to be, so we try to extend, certainly, his contract".

Responding to a query relating to whether or not Arsenal's hierarchy had made it clear that there is a new contract waiting for him to sign, Wenger said: "I do not want to talk about that and we have not spoken about that". Modern life is not exactly like that.

Wenger says it's important to have the ideal mix of young talents and experienced players if they are to win titles at the end of the season. "I think it's very important in a club that everybody does what they are paid for", he told beIN Sports.

"He came at a very, very young age of 16". He loves to be here and has responsibilities in the dressing room. Hector Bellerin is fit to start after recovering from a minor ankle knock which he picked up while playing for the Spanish under-21′s last week.
