Cape Town - Hector Bellerin's agent claims there is ongoing interest in the Arsenal right-back, but denied that Barcelona had made a move to bring him back home.

The Spain international left Barca's La Masia academy in 2011 to join the Gunners' youth set-up before going on to establish himself as an important player for Arsene Wenger's side.

The Catalan giants are expected to strengthen their defensive options during the off-season and have reportedly singled out Bellerin as a priority signing.

But his representative, Albert Botines, has dismissed the persistent links with the Spanish giants, revealing that another club had made an approach for the 22-year-old, who signed a new long-term contract at the Emirates Stadium only seven months ago.

"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 Goal.com website.

"After he signed the renewal there were only two or three clubs who kept up their interest in Bellerin, and I have to say I only received one offer for him and it is not from Barcelona.

"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."
