Arsenal are set to offer Hector Bellerin a five-year contract to warn off interest from Barcelona and Manchester City, according to the Daily Mirror.
Bellerin’s future has been the subject of speculation recently with Manchester City and Barcelona both reportedly keeping tabs on his situation.
The 21-year-old has three years to run on his current deal, but Arsenal are keen to offer him lucrative new terms in a bid to ward off potential interest.
Bellerin joined Arsenal from Barcelona as a 16-year-old in 2011 and the Catalan club have continued to monitor his progress, with vice-president Jordi Mestre expressing his admiration for the player.
Mastre told SPORT: “We’ve already seen him as a Cule! He’s a great player, there’s no doubt about that.
“Wenger convinced him to move [in 2011] 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.”
