A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has revealed his desire to stay at the Emirates Stadium for the near future amidst speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United. According to recent reports, the Gunners wide man is currently happy with life in North London and wants to stay at the club for the time being. 

The Spanish winger has experienced a mediocre campaign with the Gunners so far. However, he has no intention of leaving the club and is ready to fight for major trophies in the coming years. In a recent interview, Bellerin was quoted to have said, “I don’t know what to say – football always changes. I’m so happy here.

“This has been my home for seven years. I sound like a Londoner, my friends are from London – it’s the place I want to be right now.

“In the future, you never know. Obviously, I grew up in Barcelona, and when I watch them play I want them to win. The team are always going to be in my heart.

“At the beginning, I was someone who was doing really well. Then when things started going not that well, everything was just negative, negative, negative.

“As a team, if you don’t have the best season, it doesn’t help…It’s been a tough one.

“We were doing well until November. We always have that period where we suffer a little bit. As a team, the most important thing is results.

“If you can win beautifully like [Manchester] City do – even better.’

Bellerin has featured in 46 matches for Arsene Wenger’s side this season, scoring 3 goals while grabbing 5 assists in all competitions. He has also earned three international caps for the Spanish national team so far in his career.

Wenger’s team have a tally of 60 points after playing in 37 league encounters during the course of this season and are currently occupying the 6th position in the Premier League standings. All of the Gunners’ hopes of Champions League football next term were crushed last week when they were eliminated from the UEFA Europa League by Atletico Madrid with an aggregate score of 2-1.

Retaining some of their top talents could go a long way in aiding the North London outfit challenge for top honours next season. The London-based club should do all they can to keep hold of Bellerin for the coming years as he has become of their most improved players this season.

For now, Bellerin should focus on playing regular football and start scoring goals on a more frequent basis. At 23, he still has his peak years ahead of him which the Gunners could look to utilise in the near future. It remains to be seen what lies ahead in the future of Bellerin and whether he can take the next step at Arsenal over the next few seasons.
