Sevilla are plotting a move to take Hector Bellerin back to Spain this summer. Bellerin, 25, has seen his place at Arsenal come under threat with the signing of Cedric Soares.
The Spaniard has been at Arsenal for nine years and still has another three years left on his contract, but his future has come under question after Soares agreed a permanent four year deal last week.
The uncertainty surrounding the Gunners defender has now attracted a host of Europe’s top clubs, wth Juventus and Inter Milan both interested - but Sevilla have also made inquiries.
Injury problems have hampered Bellerin’s season this ear under new manager Mikel Arteta - but he was names as a substitute in the 2-0 win at Wolves at the weekend.
Bellerin has made only 11 league starts the season, and could well be a player that Arteta, who admitted that swap deals might be a means of strengthening his squad this summer, could cash in on.
Meanwhile, the flamboyant Spaniard last night revealed that he has planted his first seeds, after pledging to plant 3,000 trees for every Gunners win this season.
The Arsenal star posted a picture on his Twitter page of the first seedlings that have been produced in partnership with the One Tree Planted Charity, which will then be transplanted into the rainforests in November.
