​Barcelona interest welcomed by Arsenal defender Bellerin

Hector Bellerin has seemingly welcomed renewed interest from Barcelona in him, reports the London Evening Standard.

The Arsenal defender signed a new contract in November until 2022 worth over £100,000-a-week despite interest from both Manchester City and Barcelona, who viewed La Masia graduate Bellerin as a long-term successor to Dani Alves.

"It's nice there are a lot of big clubs that are interested in me, but if one of those is Barcelona that's special," the 22 year old said.

"I don't forget I grew up in that home and I will never forget my stay at Barcelona."
