Selling Bellerin would be a mistake: Cazorla

IANS 

Arsenal midfielder Santi Cazorla has said that it would be a mistake to sell Hector Bellerin.

Right-back Bellerin has interested Manchester City and La Liga giants FC Barcelona, but Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has insisted that the Gunners will fight to keep him and offer him a new contract.

Bellerin's fellow Spain international Cazorla, whose own contract at Arsenal expires next summer, has urged Arsenal to keep hold of the 21-year-old.

"For Arsenal it would be a mistake to let him go. It is obvious that many teams want him," Cazorla told IBTimes UK.

"There has been talk about Manchester City and Barcelona. He is a player with great potential and I am sure he will also be a key part of the future of the Spanish national team.

"We'll see (what happens with Hector). You could see in the victory over Swansea how good he is. He was all over the place and never stopped running," he added.

Bellerin signed for Arsenal as a youth player from Barcelona's La Masia academy and has made 82 appearances for the former English Premier League champions.
