Barcelona’s Denis Suarez has spoken to Spanish radio about Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin.
- Suarez says Bellerin is torn between Barcelona and Arsenal
- Barcelona want to sign Bellerin
- Operation Bellerin is in full swing
Barcelona are looking for a right back this summer and view Bellerin as a top target. And as they do for all their top targets, they’ve had one of their players give their opinion.
“I have spoken with him, and on the one hand he’s keen to come and on the other he feels tied to Arsenal — I hope he can come,” he said, reports Mundo Deportivo.
Bellerin caused some concern amongst Arsenal fans when he told the Spanish press he was happy with Barcelona’s interest. The interview paved the way for stories claiming he had agreed personal terms with Barcelona and would now ask Arsenal to let him leave.
However, Bellerin tweeted “Don’t believe everything you read…”, presumably rubbishing the stories.
Don't believe everything you read…

Bellerin has a six year contract with Arsenal and remains committed to the club. Nonetheless, this isn’t going to stop Barcelona’s media campaign to unsettle the player.
The right back is away with the Spanish U21 side at the moment, along with Denis Suarez.
We eagerly await the next player to give their opinion.
