Bellerin could follow in the footsteps of Fabregas - Barcelona VP | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


Barcelona have made the signing of Arsenal full-back Hector Bellerin their top priority for next summer's transfer window.

The Spaniard left Barca to join Arsene Wenger's side five years, but could become the latest in a long line to return to the Catalan giants after moving away.

The defender has become a first-team fixture at the Emirates Stadium and has made his international debut after coming through the feted La Masia academy system.

And speaking in Sport, Barca vice-president, Jordi Mestre confirmed that Bellerin could follow in the footsteps of Cesc Fabregas, Gerard Pique, Jordi Alba and Denis Suarez in returning to the Nou Camp.

'We've already seen him as a Cule [Barcelona follower],' Mestre said. 'He's a great player, there's no doubt about that.

'Wenger convinced him to move and promised him something which we couldn't. We could not promise him that within two years he would be playing in Dani Alves' place.'

With Alves leaving for Juventus in the summer, Sergi Roberto has become first-choice right back for the La Liga champions.
