Arsenal star Hector Bellerin's agent has revealed there has been no approach from Barcelona andbut has refused to rule out a move away from the Gunners in the summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old signed a long-term contract with the north London club earlier in the season. The right-back's representative Albert Botines revealed there were six to seven clubs interested in his services before he committed his future to Arsene Wenger's side.

Barcelona have long been interested in re-signing Bellerin, six years after he left them for Arsenal in 2011. According to the Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, the Catalan club's former manager Pep Guardiola is also keen on bringing the player to Manchester City.

Botines agent says it is a "natural thing" for the defender to continue at the Emirates, but admitted the situation could change in the upcoming window.

"Before he signed his renewal there were six or seven clubs interested in him, and that made him understand he was doing the right things," Botines told

"After he signed the renewal there were only two or three clubs who kept up their interest in Bellerin.

"I have read lots of things about this supposed interest from Barcelona but it has been a long time since the club last called me.

"You never know what is going to happen in the future in the football world and of course he signed a renewal with a view to stay at Arsenal for a long time.

"But you never know, maybe there's a club who likes him and things change. I can't guarantee anything about the future but the natural thing would be for him to stay because he has signed a renewal."

Meanwhile, Bellerin has been dropped to the bench after Wenger changed to a three-man defence in the last few fixtures. The full-back picked up an ankle injury earlier in the season and his agent claims that has hampered his progress at Arsenal this campaign.

"The injury in his ankle didn't allow him to show his best form like in the previous season, and in addition he felt an injury relapse after receiving a hit during a game with Spain Under-21s," he said.

"It is true he is playing less than last season but there's nothing strange about that because it is part of a footballer's life and he knows that.

"Of course he wants to play more often but he understands that he suffered some difficulties during this season and will work hard to become an important player for the team again."
