Lionel Messi has reportedly recommended Barca seal the transfer of Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin.
The Spain international has been an excellent performer for the Gunners in recent times, though he’s also had his troubles with injuries of late.
According to Don Balon, this has led to his value dropping somewhat, with the report recommending he’d now cost around £38million.
It also seems that Barcelona may no longer be the front-runners for this possible signing, with Paris Saint-Germain now tipped by Don Balon to be at the front of the queue notwithstanding Lionel Messi’s enthusiasm about the player.
Hector Bellerin could undoubtedly strengthen most top clubs around Europe and would be a significant loss for Arsenal if he were to leave.
The 24-year-old full-back has shown himself to be active at the back and a great asset going forward with his pace and ability on the ball.
Away from the pitch, Hector Bellerin has also shown he’s a real character with his commitment to social causes, making him popular with the club’s supporters.
It’s little wonder Lionel Messi is said to be keen on Barcelona re-signing Hector Bellerin, who left the Catalan giants for the Emirates Stadium as a youngster.
