The 21-year-old is apparently on a shortlist the Bundesliga giants have drawn up as they begin to look for a long-term replacement for the ageing Philipp Lahm.

Ajax’s Kenny Tete is the other man being monitored by Bayern, reports in Germany say, but Bellerin is said to be the top target and a bid could be in the pipeline.

The Spaniard is valued in the £15million bracket but still has three years left on his Arsenal contract and Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will be keen to keep hold.

Barcelona are also interested in the right-back but distanced themselves from making a bid last week, while Manchester City are also in the hunt.
