Arsenal reportedly remain interested in Junior Firpo and could use Hector Bellerin as a makeweight to complete a deal for the Barcelona full-back.

The 24-year-old is said to be open to leaving Barcelona on a permanent basis in the summer and, according to, Arsenal may be ready to make a move.

It is claimed that Mikel Arteta's side could offer Bellerin, a long-term target for Barca, in exchange for Firpo.
