Ex-Arsenal star Hector Bellerin helps Tottenham land dream Pedro Porro on transfer as he nears Sporting Lisbon move
BARCELONA right-back Hector Bellerin is reportedly close to joining Sporting Lisbon on loan.
Bellerin, 27, joined Barcelona from Arsenal on a free transfer last summer but has been limited to just seven appearances this season.
He has less than six months on his current contract but the La Liga giants are ready to sack him before the end of the 2022-23 season.
And according to The Athletic, he could now be on his way to Portugal.
Sporting Lisbon are close to loaning the Spaniard until the end of the season.
Bellerin would act as a replacement for Pedro Porro, who is said to be close to joining Tottenham in a £39million transfer.
Sporting originally planned to loan Tariq Lamptey out on loan but Brighton were reluctant to let him go on a temporary basis.
They have since focused on Bellerin, who has struggled to find form in recent months.
The Spaniard spent 10 years at Arsenal before joining Barcelona last year.
He fell out of favor at Emirates Stadium in 2021 and consequently joined Real Betis on loan.

The Gunners then decided to terminate his contract, so he swapped north London for the Nou Camp.
Barcelona are currently at the top of the La Liga table, six points ahead of rivals Real Madrid.
