Hector Bellerin could join Barcelona this summer after telling Arsenal of his intentions to leave, according to reports in Spain.
Diario Sport state the 22-year-old has informed the Gunners of his desire to return to the Camp Nou – where he left to move to North London six years ago.
However, the report continues there is a major difference in valuation between the two clubs for the Under 21 international, with Barca planning to lodge a €30m bid but Arsenal demanding €50m.
It is claimed Bellerin and boss Arsene Wenger held a frank face-to-face meeting recently where the defender informed him of his request.
The Blaugrana are seeking to sign a right back after Sergi Roberto was a makeshift in the position last year along with injury problems for Aleix Vidal.
