HEC­TOR BEL­LERIN’S agent ex­pects the full­back to sign a new con­tract ex­ten­sion with Ar­se­nal af­ter hold­ing pos­i­tive talks with the club. Al­bert Botines was in Lon­don last week to dis­cuss a new deal with Ar­se­nal of­fi­cials who are keen to snuff out in­ter­est from Barcelona for their young star. Bel­lerin, who still has three years re­main­ing on his cur­rent deal with the Gun­ners, has been in su­perb form for the club this sea­son and is rapidly be­com­ing one of the Premier League’s best right backs. The Cat­alo­ni­aborn de­fender has also broke into the Spain se­nior squad in the past year and, de­spite be­ing a sur­prise omis­sion for up­com­ing squad to face Eng­land at Wem­b­ley, Bel­lerin looks set to be­come one of their key play­ers for the fu­ture. “We are speak­ing and are now a lot closer than we were two weeks ago. In a nor­mal sit­u­a­tion he will sign,” Botines said. “Hec­tor is very happy at Ar­se­nal. This would be the fourth time he has signed a new con­tract at the club and it is clear he has made good progress.”
