According to the Daily Mirror, Catalan giants Barcelona could reignite their interest in Arsenal right-back Hector Bellerin this summer. The youngster joined the Gunners from the La Masia academy and has gone on to gain a big reputation in north London.
Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claim that the reigning Spanish champions could press ahead with a £45million bid this summer if the Gunners fail to qualify for the Champions League this season, which at the moment is a major possibility.

Arsenal kept their hopes of Champions League qualification for next season alive with a 4-1 win at Stoke City on Saturday evening.
Arsenal had the first real threat on goal on five minutes, as Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland saved well at the feet of Alexis Sanchez. The referee’s assistant raised the flag anyway, so the effort would not have counted, but nevertheless a good save from the ‘keeper.
The Gunners threatened again on nine minutes. Mesut Ozil floated a corner into the area that Shkodran Mustafi glanced towards goal, only for Butland to tip over the bar superbly. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin is set to be recalled for the injured Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in Saturday’s Premier League meeting with Stoke City. The Spanish international has been on the periphery in recent weeks, having been dropped due to poor form, but is expected to return in a right wing-back role this weekend. His manager hinted as much after Wednesday’s win over Southampton.
Bellerin was axed from the starting eleven after manager Arsene Wenger adopted a 3-4-2-1 formation, playing second fiddle to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. But with the English midfielder now ruled out for the Stoke City with a hamstring injury, his Spanish counterpart will deputise. There had been question marks over Bellerin’s attacking quality in a wing-back role, but his manager has defended him ahead of Saturday’s trip to the Bet365 Stadium. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal star player Hector Bellerin continues to be linked with a return to his former club Barcelona.
The Catalan giants are reportedly mulling a £35 million assault on the 22-year-old right-back whose future will pretty much depend on Arsenal’s Premier league finish and Arsene Wenger’s decision on whether he will leave his post at the end of the season.
Faced with a prospect of losing one of their most important players this summer, Gunners are believed to have already prepared a contingency plan. .......Read more here.....

It could be one of the final punches to Arsenal’s stomach this season as Catalan giants Barcelona look to exploit the chaos at Emirates.
The Gunners are coming off from a disappointing and underwhelming 2-0 defeat at the hands of bitter rivals Tottenham last weekend. Arsenal will finish the season behind their city rivals for the first time in the Premier League era, whereas they also look as a sure deal to miss out on the Champions League spot for the first time under Arsene Wenger. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal recorded a 2-1 win at Middlesbrough on Monday night, with goals from Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil enough to seal the victory. It was by no means a pretty one, but as midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stated after the game they just needed a win.
Arsenal were not at their best and there was a slight nervousness about the Gunners, which is understandable because of their recent away form (four straight defeats).
However, in the end, the Gunners managed to grind out a win, in a fashion that they have struggled to do in the past. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s abject performance in Monday night’s 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace confirmed something to Gunners fans. It confirmed the fact that a lot of the current squad are not fit to wear the shirt, as the chant goes.
Palace simply wanted it more and played on Arsenal’s weaknesses. However, their approach was obvious from the start. They were going to hit Christian Benteke at every possible opportunity.
This is not the beautiful game at its best, but it’s highly effective, especially against a team that looked scared of the Belgian striker. Palace were deserved winners against an Arsenal side that simply did not look good enough. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal’s hopes of securing Champions League football for next season took a heavy blow as they went down to a 3-0 defeat at Crystal Palace on Monday night.
The home side had the first attempt on goal after just three minutes. A good team move eventually saw the ball fall for Yohan Cabaye, who got his shot horribly wrong and the Frenchman’s effort went wide of Emiliano Martinez’s goal.
It was Palace who offered the next threat on goal too, as midfielder Luka Milivojevic fired just wide of Martinez near post. The Gunners hit back on nine minutes. The ball fell to Mohamed Elneny who curled an effort towards the far corner of the net, only for Wayne Hennessey to produce a fantastic save. .......Read more here.....

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin continues to generate plenty of interest from Europe’s biggest clubs despite his poor run of form, which comes as a huge contrast to performances that made him a first-team regular at Emirates last season.
Reasons for troubling dip in form Hector Bellerin in experiencing could be found in increased pressure in the club and growing interest from his former club Barcelona.
However, the Catalan giants are not the only one interested in Arsenal hot-shot as the Italian media outlet Tuttosport is suggesting that Serie A champions Juventus have also set their sights on the 22-year-old defender. .......Read more here.....
