Hector Bellerin insists he is fully committed to Arsenal

The Arsenal defender has been linked to both Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has insisted to the London Evening Standard that he is fully committed to the Gunners.

Bellerin has become a first-team regular for Arsenal over the last two seasons, having broken into the senior side back in 2014.

He has impressed as well, with a series of top performances making him first choice in the position in Arsene Wenger’s side.

They have not gone unnoticed either, with former club Barcelona, whom he left to join the Gunners, reportedly eyeing him as Dani Alves’s long-term replacement at the Nou Camp.

The Catalans are not the only ones to be linked either, with Bayern Munich having been suggested as potential suitors by Sport1 back in March.

However the player does not appear keen on a move away, insisting that he can only see himself at Arsenal.

“I say every year that England is my home now,” he told the London Evening Standard.

“I've lived there for many years; my family and my girlfriend are there. I'm very happy there so I don't see myself anywhere other than Arsenal.”

While Arsenal will be pleased to hear Bellerin committing himself at this moment in time, they will surely be worried about any interest from Barcelona.

Cesc Fabregas was another La Masia graduate to shine at the Emirates, and he ultimately could not resist a return to the Nou Camp when they came knocking.

If they make a similar move to bring Bellerin back, it will be interesting to see if he can resist as Fabregas could not.
