Hector Bellerin’s agent says the defender is completely happy at Arsenal, as reported by the Mirror.
Arsenal’s fullback has been linked with a host of clubs and the amount of money the Gunners would get for him would certainly help them rebuild the squad, but for now, he remains content with playing at the Emirates.
The Mirror claim Manchester United have made discreet enquiries about the player, but Juventus remain in pole position to secure his services, should it come to his departure. However, as agent Albert Botines says, there have been no formal approaches from any club. He also adds that he would be willing to listen to an offer from either Juventus or Napoli, because the two clubs are big not only in Italy but in Europe as well.
Juventus however, according to reports, are ready to switch their attention to Manchester United’s Matteo Darmian.
Be that as it may, Botines concludes that his client is happy in North London, and at the moment it’s hard to see him leaving. Bellerin is an integral part of the team here and it is important for his development it remains so.
Over in Germany, Schalke’s Max Meyer has reportedly cancelled a meeting with the club officials scheduled to discuss a potential new deal for the player. This piece of news has created some excitement among the fanbase, though the Mirror’s report puts Liverpool ahead of everybody else in the race for Meyer’s signature.
Whether that is the real situation remains to be seen, but if Meyer truly becomes available on a free transfer in the summer, it would certainly be a shrewd piece of business for the Gunners. The futures of Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey remain somewhat clouded at the moment, and Meyer definitely fits the description of a creative midfielder, boasting considerable pace and making smart runs, something Arsenal would miss due to a loss of any of the two long-serving midfielders.
