Hector Bellerin has agreed a new long term contract at Arsenal.
It is a huge boost for Arsenal as they have managed to hold off interest from Barcelona and Manchester City to keep hold of the 21-year-old.
Bellerin’s agent Albert Botines said: “We are speaking and are now a lot closer than we were two weeks ago. In a normal situation he will sign.
“Hector is very happy at Arsenal. This would be the fourth time he has signed a new contract at the club and it is clear he has made good progress.”
Arsenal are expecting to confirm the new contract which is expected to put him among the club’s top earners.
Bellerin joined Arsenal from Barcelona as a teenager and has paid tribute to Arsene Wenger for giving him his big chance.
City tried to sign Bellerin last summer and were hoping the Barcelona connection at the Etihad would help.
But he has agreed to stay at Arsenal and that is a big sign ahead of negotiations with Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez.
