Barcelona are exploring a late move for Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin on a free transfer after opening talks with his representatives.

According to Rudy Galetti, Barcelona are keen on signing Hector Bellerin and exploring the option of signing the Arsenal right-back on a free transfer. The Catalan giants have opened talks with the player’s representatives, although they are only interested in a free transfer.

Hector Bellerin’s future remains unresolved as things stand, as the Spaniard is keen to leave Arsenal before the window shuts. The right-back has a year left on his deal with the Gunners, and Edu Gaspar is eager to take his high wages off the club’s books.

Bellerin courted widespread interest from Real Betis, who were unwilling to meet Arsenal’s asking price despite being keen to re-sign him. They wanted the player to seek a termination of his contract at the Emirates to sign him on a free transfer.

While Bellerin’s agent has been trying to terminate his deal with Arsenal, the situation has never found a viable solution. The Gunners have refused to budge on the demands, although their stance could change this late in the window.

As things stand, Real Betis are out of the running for Bellerin, who instead has interest coming from Barcelona. The Spanish giants are keen on signing the right-back and have spoken with his representatives to find a solution.

The Blaugrana only want to sign Bellerin on a free transfer, which could accelerate talks between his agent and Arsenal in the coming hours. The Gunners might be open to doing such a business with Barcelona to get him off the wage bill.

Barcelona have agreed on a deal with AC Milan for a loan deal for Sergino Dest, meaning they have a space to fill in at right-back. Bellerin seems to be the player available in the current market.

Bellerin is also willing to take a pay cut to join Barcelona, although it will take some time for the situation to evolve with his contract termination at Arsenal. With the Catalan giants keen, the Gunners may be forced to resolve the case, which could play in their hands when canceling the contract.

Bellerin has no place in Mikel Arteta’s side as Takehiro Tomiyasu, Cedric Soares, and Ben White remain ahead of him in the pecking order. He played the previous season with Betis, helping them win the Copa Del Rey.
