What’s the story?Barcelona have long been interested in signing Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin and now latest reports from Diario Gol claim that the Catalan club chiefs have arrived in London to tie up a deal for the pacy Spaniard right-back. Just a few days back, Robert Fernandez himself, the technical director of Barcelona had confirmed his interest in signing Bellerin. Speaking to local radio station RAC1, Fernandez said:
“We can do something there [at right-back], it’s true. Signing [one] could be important. Bellerin is a player who has a contract at Arsenal. He is a magnificent player, undoubtedly,”
Fernandez also confirmed that Barcelona could most likely use the buy back option for AC Milan starlet Gerard Deulofeu. Speaking about the talented 23-year-old, Fernandez said:
In case you didn’t know...
Also, Barcelona have struggled in the right-back position ever since the departure of Dani Alves and with Bellerin now finding himself out of favour in Arsene Wenger's new system of 3 at the back, the Spaniard might well be tempted to make a move back to his home country.

The heart of the matterAlthough Barcelona might have won the recent El Clasico, the season has not gone according to plan for the Catalan giants. Luis Enrique’s men have struggled to hit the form of their previous seasons and there are expected to be plenty of changes in the Barcelona squad for next season.
Barcelona technical director Robert Fernandez is determined to tie up deals for as quickly as possible and the Catalans might just welcome back both Bellerin and Deulofeu in the summer transfer window.
