With Lionel Messi set to stay at Barcelona beyond this summer, the club can now concentrate on reshaping the first team and they have been linked with a lot of players for different positions. However, the right back position is reportedly a position on the agenda of the club with a loan move for Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin been considered. Although the move is hinged on Nelson Semedo leaving the club.
Semedo, who once was touted as one of the brightest prospects around whilst at Benfica, was brought to the Camp Nou when the Blaugrana’s original pursuit of Bellerin was unsuccessful.
Semedo has struggled to nail the right back position for himself since his move to Barcelona with Sergio Roberto, a midfielder by trade preferred ahead of him sometimes.
The Spanish club have contacted the Arsenal right-back to see what his situation is at his London club, and whilst a loan deal is considered to be the best option, a full transfer could occur.
Bellerin is only earning around four million euros net per year at the Emirates Stadium, a salary the Blaugrana even in their current economic state could afford for a season-long loan.
