Soon-to-be Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti has been eyeing Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin along with Chelsea, Manchester United and Paris Saint Germain.
Bayern Munich have, according to Sky Sports, become the first to firmly sound out the signing of the young prospect.
It is thought that Barcelona would always be in the market for the young right-back after he graduated from La Masia, the birth place other talents such as Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta. Despite this illustrious dynasty, Bellerin is yet to be capped by his native Spain.
Bellerin has made over 50 appearances for Arsenal during his career and has scored two goals. He enjoyed a brief loan spell at Watford before breaking into Arsenal’s first team when Mathieu Debuchy was injured. This, at the time, was worrying for Wenger and the fans, but after a spell of impressive performances by the 21-year-old, all nerves were quelled.
Hector Bellerin has become a fans’ favourite at Arsenal and is revered for his electrifying pace. The full-back famously broke the 40m sprint record at the club, held by Theo Walcott. The record was broken by one hundredth of a second.
Earlier this year, Henry called Bellerin the ‘best right-back in the league’ and it would be a disappointing blow for Arsenal to lose him.
He deals with counters and two-on-one situations very well, on top of bringing something going forward.
Bellerin signed a new long-term contract at Arsenal before the 2015-16 season and was involved in last season’s FA Cup triumph.
Do you think this would be a good signing for Bayern Munich? Is this a long term replacement for the ageing squad?
