We Are Working On That” Claims Wenger On Negotiations Of £50k-a-week star
He might be out injured but Hector Bellerin can still put a smile on Arsenal fans’ faces after Wenger revealed he is “not far away” from signing a new contract.
It is not surprising that clubs all over the world keep a close eye on Arsenal players as it seems to be the club that nourishes players and where they grow to become fine players as time and development are important aspects of their manager’s philosophy.
Barcelona were the latest to line up a deal for the Gunner’s right-back Hector Bellerin during the winter transfer as they look for a permanent replacement for Dani Alves.
Arsene Wenger though has confirmed that he is working on securing new deals for most of his stars as many rival clubs look to poach from Wenger’s team for their own needs. Bellerin who still has three years left on his Arsenal contract is said to be signing another one very soon which includes a wage rise with a tie-down to the Emirates.
“We are working on that,” Wenger said, “And we are not far. It will be great. Let’s say ‘it is great’ when it is done.
Not only Barcelona but other clubs in Europe are keen admirers for certain key players at the Emirates and Wenger will have to be penning down a few more contracts for the other starlets in his team.
Form like this could attract other star players to the club from around the world as they did this summer and the Gunners are making efforts to complete deals before the transfer window opens in terms of keeping their players at the club.
