Arsenal wonderkid Bellerin has equalled tally of £50m Tottenham Hotspur duo

Hector Bellerin Tackle

Arsenal's Hector Bellerin has now netted more Premier League goals this season that Tottenham's Roberto Soldado.

Arsenal's Hector Bellerin is emerging as one of the breakout stars of the Premier League season.

The Spaniard opened the scoring for the Gunners against Liverpool in their 4-1 win at the weekend, his second goal of the season.

This goal remarkably means he has scored more than rivals Tottenham Hotspur's record signing Roberto Soldado has in the Premier League, and as many as the ex-Valencia man and Erik Lamela combined.

Lamela cost Tottenham £25.8 million, reported The Guardian in 2013, with the same paper reporting Roberto Soldado to be at £26 million.

The huge expenditure on the duo has seen a poor return in their debut season fail to improve in 2014/15, with the exploits of Arsenal's marauding right-back only serving to highlight their ineffectiveness.

Bellerin has two goals in 13 games, a healthy contribution for any defender, and his attacking talents have shone in recent weeks.

Defensively the youngster may not be as polished as the more experienced Mathieu Debuchy, but while he continues having an impact on games in an attacking sense, Arsene Wenger would be remiss to suddenly leave out the ex-Barcelona trainee.
