Laporta has Barcelona agreement with Arsenal fullback Bellerin

Barcelona presidential candidate Joan Laporta has an agreement with Arsenal fullback Hector Bellerin.

The Mirror says Laporta has held talks and has an agreement with the Gunners defender's representatives to try to negotiate a fee with Arsenal to bring him back.

Bellerin, who is also of interest to Paris Saint-Germain, arrived in North London as a 16-year-old and has gone on to play over 200 times for the first team.

He remains under contract until 2023, but today's report states 'he is open to rejoining his old club and returning to his home city' in the summer.

However, that all depends on whether Laporta is voted in for a second crack at life as Barcelona president in the upcoming election.
