New Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, has drawn up a list of five ‘untouchable’ players, who must not be sold this summer by the club.
The UK Mirror reports that Hector Bellerin has been told he is one of them.
Emery has spoken with Bellerin and made it clear that he sees him as a key player ahead of the 2018/2019 campaign.
It is a big boost of confidence for the right-back, who has been a target for Juventus and Barcelona and Manchester United.
France striker Alexandre Lacazette is another that Emery rates highly and the Gunners have also tied Granit Xhaka down to a new contract.
It would seem obvious they would also not want to lose Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who were both signed in January.
