The front cover of Sport claims Barcelona are already negotiating with Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin. Robert Fernandez is understood to have met with Bellerin's entourage in September and kept contact since. Now, he is supposedly the priority signing for the right-back position next season.

Bellerin is on a good contract at Arsenal and has a renewal offer on the table, and he won’t come cheap: 40 million euros is the rumored price.

The report says Barcelona are set to meet with Richard Low, Arsenal's director of operations, in April. Other teams such as Manchester City are also interested.

Bellerin was sniped from the Barcelona academy by Arsenal when the player was a teenager. Sport claims Bellerin is eager of going back home, which could make negotiations easier for Robert.
