Sevilla chief Monchi turns to Arsenal fullback Bellerin

Sevilla sports chief Monchi is keen to bring Arsenal fullback Hector Bellerin back to Spain.

Monchi recognises they need to find a replacement for 35 year-old veteran Jesus Navas and Mundo Deportivo says his top target is Bellerin.

Bellerin was tempted away by Arsenal as a teenager from Barcelona's La Masia academy and now at 25 is among the most long-serving players at the club.

Monchi now hopes to convince Bellerin about a return to LaLiga, where he would have a better chance of regular Champions League football with Sevilla than the Gunners.

Bellerin is known to Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui, with the pair working together at international youth level.
