Widespread reports have indicated that Arsenal’s Spanish full-back Hector Bellerin has signed a new contract with the Gunners
However, reports today seem to indicate that the youngster has indeed made good on his promise to stay, and has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal, with Bellerin’s agent also confirming that he was close to signing a new contract.
Bellerin has been a revelation at right-back, and has been steadily developing ever since his emergence in 2014.
The 21-year old has been universally praised for his performances, with Rio Ferdinand even admitting that the Arsenal player was the best right-back in the league.
So it is no wonder, then, that Arsenal fans were ecstatic at reports he had signed a new contract, and Twitter had it’s say on the matter :
IF Bellerin signs a new contract extension with the club. We are proving big time that we can attract the best. Not easy saying no to Barca pic.twitter.com/7nQwKYUykb

Of course, while all of them were happy about Bellerin, a few were still worried about Ozil and Alexis’ contracts :
I'm confident Ozil will join Bellerin in extending his deal.
Genuinely concerned about Alexis.

I wasn't concerned with Bellerin signing the contract extension. My main concern is Ozil man with just over a year left man , teams 1/2

Outstanding news that Bellerin has signed/is signing a new contract. Big move. Just Ozil to wrap up.
