Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger on Thursday said he is unaware of Barcelona Football Club’s interest in the team’s Spanish right-back Hector Bellerin, saying it is difficult to take these reports seriously.
“He has just signed a contract and has an unbelievable number of years to go. Again it’s very difficult to take this thing seriously,” the French manager said.
Bellerin, 21, joined Arsenal’s academy after he initially qualified at Barcelona’s youth academy.
Bellerin signed a new contract for six seasons with the London side last November.
