Arsenal 'eye Hector Bellerin swap transfer with Barcelona for Junior Firpo after failed January loan bid'

ARSENAL are reportedly prepared to let Hector Bellerin rejoin Barcelona this summer.

But Mikel Arteta will only let him go if Barca give up Junior Firpo in a swap deal.

Football London claims Ronald Koeman remains eager to sign Bellerin, having lined him up in January.

The right-back, 25, is a graduate of Barca’s famous La Masia academy.

And Bellerin has struggled to impress this season despite being a regular in Arteta’s XI.

Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the Spaniard.

But Barcelona are believed to still be leading the race after declaring their interest last year.

They have now been boosted by reports that Arsenal are open to negotiations.

But the Gunners want 24-year-old Firpo in return.

The left-back is no more than a bit-part player at the Nou Camp.


But Arsenal are light in that position after letting Sead Kolasinac return to Germany.

Bukayo Saka is also being used further forward now, leaving Kieran Tierney as the sole man on the left flank.

Indeed, reports claim Arsenal actually failed with a deadline day swoop for Firpo last month.

But they could be in line to finally get their hands on the ace, with Bellerin heading in the opposite direction.
