Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin has decided that he wants to extend this stay in North London and will reject an approach from former club Barcelona, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The gifted wideman left Camp Nou as a youngster, coming through the ranks at the Emirates Stadium and into the first team.

Bellerin has made the right-back berth at Arsenal his own and is adjudged as one of the best players in his position in the Premier League.

Barcelona offloaded Dani Alves to Juventus in the summer, with Sergi Roberto and Aleix Vidal failing to convince Luis Enrique that they can fill the void on a long-term basis.

The Catalan outfit are said to be in the market for a new right-back and had Bellerin in their sights, but the Spain international is set to commit to the English side in a major boost to Arsene Wenger’s men.

The Spaniard is set to return to the Arsenal team for the North London derby against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.
