Hector Bellerin Latest, Berkay Ozcan Rumours

"It is a unusual championship because there is no continuity", Wenger said.

"It worked well for him".

Bellerin, 21, has been linked with a move back to Barcelona as the Catalans aim to secure a long-term right-back replacement for Dani Alves.

Elsewhere, Arsenal are understood to be pursuing young Stuttgart talent Berkay Ozcan, whose agent, Baris Yukselsen, told Turkish-Football.com (h/t Mirror) that the Gunners are indeed monitoring his progress in Germany.

He took the English league by storm and won it in just his second season in charge. We had a bad experience playing there with Arsenal in the Champions League but it made the ground feel far more familiar when it came to playing there for England.

Paul Merson has warned Arsene Wenger that Arsenal will have to spend around £200m on signing five or six new players to strengthen his squad this summer.

Wenger has been Arsenal head coach for 20 years and his current role at the club divides opinion among the fans and football pundits alike.

However, in addition to bringing in an enormous amount of revenue, Wenger does not spend a lot of money on players, saving much of it.

The Gunners are now fifth in the Premier League table and facing an uphill battle to secure a coveted top-four finish.

Once an academy prospect at Barca, Bellerin signed a new contract at the Emirates in November which keeps him at the club until 2022 on over £100,000-a-week.

"It's a very balanced team with a good size who are equipped to deal with the Premier League".

Wenger is under huge pressure with the Gunners now sitting outside the Premier League top four and having been thumped 10-2 over two legs by Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the Champions League.
