Barcelona have renewed interest in Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin. The Spaniard had been a target for the Catalan giants all summer but refused to return to Spain saying he preferred to stay at Arsenal. The team has now identified Shakhtar Donetsk’s Darijo Srna as a short-term alternative for the position. The exit of Brazilian defender Dani Alves had left the team struggling to fill the void left by his Juventus move.
Bellerin moved to the Emirates Stadium at the age of 16 from La Masia and has turned down the opportunity to return to Camp Nou on more than one occasion.
