Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid are reportedly eyeing a move for Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin this summer.

This is according to the publication from the stables of The Telegraph which revealed that Atletico Madrid are ready to make a bid for the Spanish international player despite the fact that Bellerin is just recovering from a serious knee injury.

Hector Bellerin suffered the knee injury during the Premier League clash with London rivals Chelsea last season.

His injury was the only blemish as Arsenal beat Chelsea 2-0 at home to claim bragging rights.

Atletico Madrid will also offer winger Vitolo as part of their bid to sign Hector Bellerin.

Vitolo is not a stranger to Arsenal boss Unai Emery who worked with him while he was the manager of Spanish La Liga club Sevilla.

Vitolo and Unai Emery won three successive Europa League titles with Sevilla between 2014 and 2016.

Atletico Madrid need a new right-back after long serving player Juanfran left the club this summer at the end of his contract.

Colombian international defender Santiago Arias is the only recognized right-back in the Atletico Madrid first team at the moment though Jose Gimenez can also play on the right side of the defence.
