Bellerin is also said to be attracting interest from Manchester United, Chelsea and Aston Villa but the forward, who can also play on the wing, is expceted to become the latest prodigy to swap the Nou Camp for the Emirates Stadium. Whoever does land Bellerin will be due to pay just €400,000 in training compensation. Jon Miquel Toral Harper will definitely join Arsenal this summer, following in the footsteps of the likes of Fran Merida and most famously Cesc Fabregas. United, who are also keen on Bellerin, have previously raided Barca's ranks - they signed Gerard Pique as a teenager, before selling him back to them a few years later. Bellerin is regarded as one of the best of the current generation along with Toral and Barca are understood to be fuming at losing them both. However, they are managing to keep hold of goalkeeper Pol Balleste, Roger Riera and Sergi Samper who are seen as the other prized assets along with foreign recruits Maxi Rolon, from Argentina, and Cameroonian striker Jean Marie Dongou.
