Hector Bellerin wants to stay at Arsenal
Bellerin has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona this summer – the club he started his career at as a youngster.
But the Spain international, who joined Arsenal six years ago at the age of 16, only signed a new contract last November keeping him at the north London club until 2023.
And the 22-year-old has ruled out a move to Barcelona as he intends to honour his contract at the Emirates.
"I signed my contract for a reason," Bellerin told the Daily Mail when asked about a return to the Nou Camp.

"I signed it because I wanted to be here. I wouldn't have done it otherwise.
"Arsenal is the club that gave me the chance to be a professional and since the first time I met with the boss he's always said if I progressed the right way I could be an Arsenal player for a long time.
"I've been here nearly six years and I love London. I'm still discovering the city.
"The other day, I was out in the car in east London thinking I'd never been there before. That's what I like about the city."
Arsenal take on Chelsea today in the FA Cup final, and Bellerin believes a win at Wembley would make up for a disappointing campaign.

Arsenal enjoyed their last training day of the season but three stars missed out
The Gunners finished outside the top four for the first time under Arsene Wenger, meaning they'll be without Champions League football next term.
"In the league, [Chelsea] deserve to be winners," Bellerin added. "They've been consistent and played some great football. But this is a final, one game and it's a competition we love.
"We're going to grab our chance because we need to make amends for the rest of the season and hopefully go home with the FA Cup.
"The fans will be happy and we'll be happy as players. When you're a kid thinking of being a footballer you're thinking about lifting trophies."
