Report: Juventus want Hector Bellerin with defender set to quit Arsenal
Juventus want Hector Bellerin, with Tuttomercatoweb reporting that the Old Lady are one of four Serie A sides weighing up a move for the Arsenal defender this summer.
Bellerin’s future is up in the air. He has just completed a loan spell with Real Betis. And, unsurprisingly, he would like to return to Los Verdiblancos ahead of next season.
Reports on Monday claimed that the right-back has no intention of returning to the Arsenal fold. And Tuttomercatoweb is also suggesting that he will not be at the Emirates next season.
The report suggests that his first-choice would be to return to Betis. However, he is attracting plenty of attention from Italy.
Tuttomercatoweb reports that Juventus, Inter Milan, Roma and Fiorentina are all evaluating a potential move for Bellerin. His contract worth around £66,000-a-week has one more year left to run.
Juventus want Hector Bellerin
Bellerin is definitely not the only Arsenal player Juventus want this summer. They have already been linked with a host of names from Mikel Arteta’s squad.
The player Juve appear to want most is Gabriel Magalhaes. Massimiliano Allegri’s men have to replace Giorgio Chiellini this summer. And reports claimed that their director wanted to hold talks with the Gunners about the centre-back.
Arsenal, on the other hand, want Arthur Melo. So it is no surprise that there has been talk of a swap.
The Gunners would surely only have interest in using Torreira or Bellerin in a swap. Bellerin is an ‘exceptional‘ player who should be near his peak at the age of 27.
But the time is right for the defender to move on. And it may be a boost for Arsenal if they could sway him towards Turin.
