Barca want to sign a new fullback in January and have made the Spaniard a priority target.
Sport says Barca will bid for Bellerin and are confident of closing a deal. Not the least due to Arsene Wenger's situation.
Bellerin feels a loyalty to his manager, but with Wenger's deal now inside its final 12 months, the defender will seek to move on if the boss also leaves.
Barca chiefs are convinced everything is falling into place to bring Bellerin back to La Masia in 2017.
