Arsenal to offer Hector Bellerin five-year contract to warn off interest from Barcelona and Manchester City.

Hector Bellerin will be offered a new five year contract to fend off Barcelona and Manchester City.
Arsenal have sounded out Bellerin's representatives and talks will begin in earnest after the international break.
Bellerin, 21, who has still got three years left on his current deal, has quickly become one of the best right backs in Europe with remarkable progression in the past two years.
That has alerted Barcelona which is where he started his young career before moving to Arsenal as a teenager.
City also made contact in the summer which is believed to have infuriated Arsenal and they were told in no uncertain terms he was not for sale.
 
But despite Bellerin being called up for Spain and Arsenal hinting at a new deal at the back end of last season, the discussions have not gone much further until now.
However, Arsenal are now of a mind to push full steam ahead with a significant pay rise to put him high up Arsenal's pay scale.
But Arsenal know it is also about Bellerin being ambitious and wanting to win things so they will be hoping their big summer spending spree and start to the season proves their intent.
Arsenal are also hoping to tie down star duo Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez to new deals as both of their contracts expire in 2018.
Talks are underway with both and they are hopeful both will sign which would be another strong message of intent.
