Attack-minded right-back Hector made huge strides in his development last season as he sampled the professional game for the first time.
Having previously been named on the bench in the Capital One Cup, he made his Arsenal first-team debut in that competition as a substitute against West Bromwich Albion.
Although he still featured regularly for the Arsenal youth teams, Hector also spent part of the season on loan in the Championship with Watford, where he impressed in his eight league outings. The Spanish U19 international returned to Arsenal and was named in the bench in the Premier League before proceeding to enjoy a hugely successful pre-season ahead of the new campaign.
Previously with Barcelona, where he tended to operate as a right-winger, Hector could well be installed as Arsenal’s second-choice right-back this season. He is quick and adept at delivering accurate crosses and has also improved defensively in recent years.
