Hector Bellerin says the Arsenal squad are excited about meeting new fans when they visit Singapore.
The Gunners fly to Asia on Sunday to compete in the Barclays Asia Trophy, where they will play a Singapore Select XI and Stoke City or Everton.
Bellerin was part of the tour party that visited New York City last summer and the 20-year-old says anticipation is building ahead of this year’s trip to the Far East.
"I’ve never been to Singapore so to go to a new place and meet new fans that we probably wouldn’t have the chance to see is great"
“We’re all really excited about it,” Bellerin told Arsenal Player. “I’ve never been to Singapore so to go to a new place and meet new fans that we probably wouldn’t have the chance to see is great. We’re all really looking forward to it.
“Sometimes you get tweets from different languages that you’d never expect. There are fans from all around the world and it’s nice to go to their country to meet them so that they don’t have to come here.
“It’s going to be a great experience for us and for them as well.”
