Barcelona have confirmed the signing of Hector Bellerin on a free transfer from Arsenal. The right-back reportedly terminated his contract with the Gunners, where he had a year left. Bellerin signed a one-year deal at the Camp Nou as he will soon be presented as a Blaugrana player. The Hector Bellerin saga is finally over, as the right-back re-signs with boyhood club Barcelona. The Spanish full-back returns to the Camp Nou 11 years after departing their academy. Bellerin was expected to leave Arsenal throughout the summer. He was expected to leave permanently in 2021 but could only join Real Betis on a loan deal. The right-back had a terrific season with the La Liga side, helping them win the Copa Del Rey last season. Betis were clear favourites to re-sign Bellerin during this window but complicated matters after refusing to pay Arsenal’s asking price. The Gunners even rejected a low offer from the Spanish side, who later urged Bellerin to terminate his contract with the club.

Ian Wright spoke about the assessment of Arsenal’s season while he was on Premier League TV last week Friday, two days before the final day of the season. According to him, the season is a disappointment and not a failure. Ian Wright disclosed that sixth spot at the end of this season would have been progress on the eighth spot from last season. However, the manner of defeats to Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United to end the season leaves a sour taste in the mouth of the Arsenal fans of what could have been in terms of Champions League football. The Gunners failed to qualify for the Champions League after blowing a four-point lead over North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur with three games left.

The Gunners are hitting top form at present, playing some intricate football in the final third, and are looking menacingly for many defences. The Gunners scored three goals against a gritty Watford side who were fighting for their Premier League life at the weekend, and all three goals came through hard work and neat team play, and former Arsenal striker Wright picked our Martin Odegaard’s goal in particular as one which showed exactly how confident the team is playing at present.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright has criticised the club's decision to sell midfielder Granit Xhakathis summer especially after his impressive performances with the Switzerland team at the Euro 2020 tournament. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640"] https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CkBxiZlWgAAgC6W?format=jpg&name=small[/caption] Switzerland skipper Xhaka was one of the best players at the Euro 2020 tournament as he helped his country reach the last eight before they were knocked out by Spain via penalties. He missed the quarterfinal clash with the three-time champions due to suspension and a lot of people think the outcome might have been different if Xhaka played the game. Spain and Switzerland played out a 1-1 draw at the end of 120 minutes before the Spaniards booked a semi-final berth at the end of the dreaded penalty shootout.
