Hector Bellerin is gearing up for the new season and the start of Arsenal’s pre-season.

With youth players arriving back at the club last week, the senior players are due to start turning up at London Colney this Monday.

One notable exception is, of course, Alexis Sanchez, who will be given an extended break due to the fact that his season only finished (finally) on Sunday night with their penalty win over Argentina in the Copa America final.

Taking to his official Instagram Bellerin revealed that he is en route to London to get ready for the start of pre-season.

‘Ector will be looking to build on his impressive season last term, but can he convince the boss that he should be handed the first-choice right-back slot or will Arsene stick with senior statesman Mathieu Debuchy?

Who the hell knows!

Back home to London. Pre-season starts this week!
