Hector Bellerin is on a mission to find a young fan who held up a sweet sign about him during Arsenal’s victory over Crystal Palace.

The Arsenal defender called on Twitter to help find the girl who attended the December 28 match at Selhurst Park.

He wrote: “Came across this picture of last nights game, could everyone RT and help me find this young fan please?

His shirt number, 24, is included inside the heart.

Other pictures taken before the game show her to be wearing an Arsenal shirt, and seemingly at the game with her parents and brother.

Bellerin’s message was retweeted by the main Arsenal account.
