The youngster has made a massive impression with the North London side and has signed his first professional contract with the club.
“It has been really, really great,” he told Arsenal.com. “I’m so happy with the decision I made to come here.
“Everyone has been really nice and the football is unbelievable. I have learned things I don’t think I would have learnt at Barcelona so I am really enjoying it. I hope to be here for many more years.”
Since joined the Gunners, Bellerin has adapted from being a winger to playing a more defensive role at right back.
“When I was at Barcelona I always used to play on the right-wing,” he said. “But last year I learnt a lot from Steve Bould about how to defend and every day I feel more and more comfortable as a right back.
“It gives me a chance to go forward, and I am learning every day about the defensive side – I really enjoy it.”
