BARCELONA are reportedly plotting a move to sign Hector Bellerin on loan.
The Spanish giants have met with Arsenal to discuss a deal for the 25-year-old.
According to Marca, Barcelona would prefer to sign the defender on loan this summer.
If Arsenal reject their proposal, the LaLiga side will offer them a player-plus-cash deal.
Barcelona reportedly believe a deal for Bellerin will cost them between £18m and £23m.
