Hector Bellerin is closing in on a newArsenal contract



Hector Bellerin is reportedly closing in on a new contract at the club.

The 21-year-old has quickly established himself as the first-choice right-back for Arsene Wenger in recent seasons, although speculation has linked him with a move to Manchester City or former club Barcelona.

Bellerin still has three years remaining on his current deal at the Emirates, but Arsenal are keen to tie the Spain international down to a new contract in order to ward off any potential interest.

"We are speaking and are now a lot closer than we were two weeks ago. In a normal situation he will sign," Bellerin's agent Albert Botines told The Guardian.

"Hector is very happy at Arsenal. This would be the fourth time he has signed a new contract at the club and it is clear he has made good progress at the club."

Bellerin joined Arsenal as a teenager in 2011 and has since gone on to make 87 appearances for the club in all competitions.
