Graduating from Arsenal's youth ranks, Bellerín made his professional debut for Arsenal in 2014. In the 2015–16 season, Bellerín started in 36 of 38 Premier League matches.

Per the previous contract, Bellerín was tied to the club till July 2019. The Telegraph reported Bellerín would probably earn about £100,000 per week. Currently, the centre back earns about £40,000 per week.

After signing the contract extension, Bellerín said, "I've just got to keep on progressing, keep working hard to be the best player I can be, and hopefully help the team to be where it's got to be, to win some silverware." Arsenal won the league title previously in 2004.
