Hector Bellerin has handed us a huge boost in pre-season, with the young Spaniard announcing on Instagram that he has agreed a new Arsenal contract.
The 20-year-old was fantastic in his breakout season and was a huge part of our successful spell in 2015. He proved hugely important to our campaign following injuries to Mathieu Debuchy, and his meteoric rise to prominence was nothing short of phenomenal.
He looks like a real star of the future, and it’s fantastic that he looks set to be spending his future with us. It would be a huge blow to lose such a talented youngster, so it’s excellent that we have tied him down to a long term deal.
Check out his Instagram post below:
Mathieu Debuchy looked like a solid acquisition when we brought him to the club from Newcastle, but he has arguably already been usurped by Bellerin. We also have Carl Jenkinson waiting in the wings, so our options at right-back are looking better than ever.
Hopefully Bellerin enjoys a second season that is as successful as his first, and continues his astounding rise up the ranks.
